Nanaji Deshmukh is a person who needs no introduction. His
sharp intellect and extraordinary organizing skill has put an indelible mark
in Indian politics.
Born on October 11,1916 in a modest Maharashtrian family at
Kadoli, a small town in Parbhani district, Nanaji had little money to pay for his tuition fees and
books. But he had such a burning zeal and desire for education and knowledge
that he did not shy away from working as a vendor and selling vegetables to
raise money for realising his objective.
