Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak & Dr. Sujit Nair

Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak is a versatile genius who has made path breaking contributions to society without the power of post or money. He has turned the pages of India’s long history of untouchability, social discrimination, and the mass practice of open defecation.  In recent years, he has given a new life to the long-suffering widows of India.  Dr. Pathak is a great humanist and social reformer of contemporary India. To the weaker sections of society especially, his is the compassionate face of a paternal redeemer. He has the vision of a philosopher and the zeal of a missionary. An icon of sanitation and social reform, he has made a difference in the lives of millions of people. With his efforts the erstwhile untouchables have been allowed by the society to intermingle with them, to live on a par with them, dine with them and pray with them in the temples. He has created a new culture that embraces the poor and extols the dignity of labour. His boundless love for the downtrodden finds expression in myriad and tangible ways. No wonder those who know him swear that Dr. Pathak is born to help the helpless. The Sulabh Founder is a Renaissance man who combines in his multifaceted personality the traits of a social scientist, an engineer, an administrator and an institution-builder. What is remarkable is that he has ingeniously utilized all these talents to enrich and empower the depressed classes and improve community health, hygiene and environmental sanitation. He is thus fulfilling the dreams of two national icons—Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar
