Among leaders who have influenced the course of Indian Political history and way of thinking, Ram Manohar Lohia was indeed a unique figure. Born on 23rd March, 1910 in Akbarpur, Uttar Pradesh, he was one amongst of the great nationalist political leaders of the Indian independence movement. Seeking an indigenous free from euro-centric solution to Indian problems, Lohia’s vision and claim for his thoughts still remain contested and debated along the corridors of the Indian Philosophical and Political thoughts. In analysing Ram Manohar Lohia’s ideas, this piece of work deals with two of his most debated works ‘On Language’ and ‘The Two Segregation of Caste and Sex’, excavating their philosophical foundations and reconstruct his political doctrine.
