was long and continuous He commissioned translations of Phules Marathi worksand edited the seminal volume Selected Writings of Jyotirao Phule for LeftWord Books and later wrote a slim but rich bookThe World of Ideas in Modern Marathi: PhuleVinobaSavarkarfor Tulika GPD viewed Phule as a revolutionarynot a reformerbecause he was the only one who consistently argued that the caste system could not be reformedand had to be annihilated In that sensePhule was BR Ambedkars predecessorbut GPDs originality lay in showing how Phule carried forward the anti-caste agenda of the medieval bhakti movement on the one handand was the forerunner of socialism on the other (his followerNarayan Meghaji Lokhandewas an early organiser of the Bombay working class) So Phule opposed caste not just from a moral-ethical standpointbut on the grounds that it is an exploitative and oppressive system Unlike his wife Kalindiwho was a womens activist and communistGPD was not a grassroots organiser He was a warrior of ideas Onceseveral years agoI was chatting with an old JNU student He told me about a public meeting that GPD addressed sometime in the early 1970s against Americas war in Vietnam He said that as an economics studenthe had never imagined that quotations from Sanskrit and medieval bhakti poetry could flow so easily and naturally in an anti-imperialist speech That this speech analyticaltrenchantsarcasticpoetic was delivered by this smallslim lecturer with a boys face made it even more remarkable In timemany of us became accustomed to GPDs speaking stylebut back thenit must have appeared sui generis RecentlyI met a young Marathi novelist who said he was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to make friends with GPDand even more by the breadth of his reading and ability to pull out the precisely apt quotation at the perfect time Apart from Ram Bapat (a towering Marathi intellectualGPDs closest friendwho died in July 2012)he said GPD was the only person he knew who could discuss Marx and Vinoba in equal depth not to mentionI thought to myselfPanini and MaoKalidasa and HegelVijay Tendulkar and Wittgenstein As I listened to this stranger talk about himI had a
