Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel - Introduction
SARDAR PATEL was one of the founders of our constitution. It worked in India's favor that the Constituent Assembly was not elected on the basis of adult franchise. First rate minds were handpicked from all parts of India for their knowledge, vision and dedication.

The story of Sardar Patel's life is easily told. Though his real date of birth is ambiguous, the date given for his matriculation exam was October 31, 1875, which he never changed - rather typical of the constancy, which characterised his mental make-up.

Sardar Patel was born to parents who were deeply religious. While Vallabhbhai became the architect of modern India, his brother Vithalbhai was the first speaker of the Central Legislative Assembly. Vallabhbhai was an affectionate man with a fine sense of humour, a side seen by rare few.

Mahatma Gandhi has gone on record saying that during the sixteen months in jail, he was kept in peals of laughter by Vallabhbhai, who was a co-inmate.

Vallabhbhai never courted publicity. He never projected himself and quietly did his work. He was a true Karma yogi.

Missons :
His foremost ambition was to consolidate India. The Times of London said that Vallabhbhai's achievement of the integration of the Indian states would rank with that of Bismarck or probably higher.

His second ambition was to ensure the survival of a united country by creating a strong civil service. He conceived the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) in place of the Indian Civil Service (ICS). He also conceived the Indian Civil Service (IPS). Both these services are very much existant today and have enabled India to survive as a democratic state.

His third ambition was to make India economically strong, prosperous and progressive, a vision that every Indian carries forward today.

Sardar not only aimed at territorial integration but also the integration of different communities by developing a sense of national identity. He managed to liquidate 554 princely states without liquidating the princes! Had it not been for his vision, India would have achieved freedom without independence.

Sardar Patel was also the chairman of the Minorities Sub-Committee of the Constituent Assembly. He sought communal integration and made different communities give up their claim for separate electorates. Like a true leader, he did not flatter people but plainly told them where they were wrong.

Vallabhbhai was never anti-Muslim but he was against fanaticism. His courage in banning the RSS showed, he was secular and non-communal in his approach. In Sardar Patel's words, "the most dangerous thing in a democracy is to interfere with the Services."

Sardar's memorable response to independence gained in 1947 was, "What we have is not Swaraj, but only freedom from foreign rule. The people have still to win internal Swaraj, abolish distinctions of caste or creed, banish untouchability, improve the lot of the hungry masses, and live as one joint family in short, to create a new way of life and bring about a change of heart and a change of outlook."

Sardar Patel never posed as a Socialist. He had no property of his own, expect his personal belongings. Once an ardent Socialist approached him with an appeal to abolish inequality of wealth and cited as an instance that X was master of several millions. The Sardar let him expatiate on the distribution of surplus wealth. When he had finished, Sardar Patel coolly looked at him and said;

" I know the extent of X's wealth. If all of it were distributed equally among the people of India, Your share would be about four annas and three paise. I am willing to give it to you from my own pocket if you understand to talk no more about this."

Sardar wanted to purge capitalism of its ugly face but he also realised that wealth has to be created first, before it can be distributed.

His greatest achievements were the unification and integration of India and the creation of a strong and independent civil service.

It's a tragedy, the lessons taught by the outstanding Indian patriot and statesman who unquestionably ranks among the world class, are so little remembered today.

Sardar Patel is regarded as one of the greatest Indians of this century simply by the impact he made on his contemporaries. Here's what they said:
"Jawaharlal is a thinker and Sardar is a doer." These were Gandhiji's words at the Karachi session of the Congress in 1931.
The Sardar was also a thinker but not an impractical visionary.
Lord Wavell's diary described Sardar as "...certainly the most impressive of the Congress Leaders and has the best balance."

The Sardar shared Wavell's belief that Indian can be governed firmly, or not at all.

To Sardar Patel, the unity and integrity of Indian was of paramount importance. He shared the view of the Indian thinker who, when he was told that it was the British who divide and rule said, "It is we who divide and they rule"

The India of today is certainly not the India of Sardar Patel's dreams. We are still far from the vision of the greatness he sought to achieve for the nation.
Veer Vithalbhai Patel - Introduction
Born On : September 27th 1873 | Born In : Nadiad, Gujarat | Died On : October 22nd 1933
Career : Freedom Fighter, Legislator | Nationality : Indian

Mahatma Gandhi was the soul of the Indian political movement. Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel was its strength and Vithalbhai Patel was its character. Although Vithalbhai is a lesser known politician in the Indian freedom struggle than his brother Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, popularly known as the "Iron Man of India", he, nevertheless, surely holds a great role and an eminent position in the entire freedom movement. By entering into politics much before his renowned brother, Vithalbhai established the Swaraj Party that aimed at forming self-government and achieving freedom for the Indian people from the British Raj. He strongly opposed Mahatma Gandhi's decision to abandon the Non-Cooperation Movement with the occurrence of the Chauri Chaura tragedy.

Early Life
Vithalbhai Jhaverbhai Patel was born as the third of the five Patel brothers in Nadiad district in the Indian state of Gujarat. He was four years elder to Vallabhbhai Patel, a prominent Indian freedom fighter. Being raised and brought up in Karamsad, he attained self education at Nadiad and Bombay. To earn his education and living, he worked as a pleader, or junior lawyer, at Godhra and Borsad. He was married off to a girl from Diwaliba village at a very young age. Following his footsteps, his younger brother Vallabhbhai Patel also educated himself and worked as a pleader. Since both were ambitious, they dreamt to study in England. To fulfill his dream, Vallabhbhai Patel had accumulated enough money and ordered for his passport and ticket to England. However, the parcel delivered by the postman was addressed to "Mr. V.J. Patel, Pleader".

Though the parcel was meant for Vallabhbhai Patel, but Vithalbhai insisted on traveling on his passport and tickets on the pretext of preventing social criticism of an elder brother following the lead of the younger one. Left with no option and considering it to be his fate, Vallabhbhai let his elder brother travel to England. Additionally, he even paid for his stay during the entire study course. Vithalbhai studied at the Middle Temple Inn in London and completed the 36-month course in just 30, thereby appearing as the topper of his class. He came back to India in 1913 and started working as a barrister in courts of Bombay and Ahmedabad. While his professional life was moving on smoothly, he met with a personal crises in 1915 when his wife died, leaving him a widower for the rest of his life.

Political Career
Much before Vallabhbhai Patel could enter politics, Vithalbhai got into the political world and became a prominent name in the Indian independence movement. He managed to win a seat in Bombay Legislative Council with the help of a band of supporters. Though the body did not have any real functions, Vithalbhai tried working hard for one year but failed to achieve anything for national independence, self-government, or public welfare. After the incident of Chauri Chaura and the end of Non-cooperation Movement in 1922, Vithalbhai left Congress and established his own party called Swaraj Party, along with Chittaranjan Das and Motilal Nehru.

The basic aim of the party was to enter the councils and abolish the government run by the British. However, the party could get success in dividing the Congress and later itself as well. He became popular amongst the masses through his oratorical and witty speeches. Thereafter, he was elected to the Central Legislative Assembly in 1923 and later in 1925, became the Assembly's president. Despite not completely in sync with Mahatma Gandhi's philosophy and practices, Vithalbhai joined Congress and began his struggle for India's independence. He did not receive major support from any specific region, but still managed to get popular and influence people with this fiery and powerful speeches and articles published in the newspapers.

Later Years
In 1929, several supporters of the Government of India made attempts to remove Vithalbhai from the presidentship of Imperial Legislative Assembly, or Central Legislative Assembly, but were stopped by the Viceroy Lord Irwin who was trying to win the support of many important nationalists. On failing to do so, Gandhi launched the Civil Disobedience Movement in 1930 resulting in Vithalbhai resigning from his the Central Legislative Assembly on the pretext of support the movement. He declared Purna Swaraj (complete independence) and re-entered Congress. For this, he was even imprisoned but was released in 1931 due to his declining health. For the same, he traveled to Europe to get himself medically treated. With the end of Salt Satyagraha, Vithalbhai yet again stood against Gandhi and joined Subhash Chandra Bose. Both met in Vienna in 1933 when Bose was released from Bhowali Sanitorium and set to Vienna for treatment, while Vithalbhai also went to Vienna to get himself treated. Sharing similar political views and desire for India's freedom, both got closer to each other and traveled extensively throughout Europe gathering funds and political support.

Death
While touring Europe, Bose started showing improvement in his health, but Vithalbhai started declining further. On finding his immense support for the political work, Vithalbhai handed over the residual part of his property amounting to Rs. 1, 20,000 to Bose considering that the latter had no private means to earn nor would he receive a single penny from Congress. Vithalbhai passed away on October 22, 1933 in Geneva, Switzerland. His body was brought back to India and cremated in Bombay on November 10. He was 60 years old.
The Memorial
With the ideals of Sardar Patel and Vithalbhai Patel as its nucleus, the magnificent Memorial is spread across seven acres adjoining the H.M. Patel Center for Medical Care and Education, Pramukh Swami Medical College and Shri Krishna Hospital. After lush green Landscapes and an octagonal yard comes the monument, where busts of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and Veer Vithalbhai Patel adorn the entrance. The monument has a central hall with amphitheatre like seating arrangement. The main hall is covered by verandahs all around. The corridors has a photo gallery that has paintings, banners and photography depicting events from the lives of Sardar Patel and Veer Vithalbhai Patel. The Memoral museum exhibits the collection of priceless belongings of Sardar inculding the Bharat Ratna, posthumously awarded to him by the Govt. Of India.

The Memorial organizes various programs, which aim at inculcating the qualities of leadership in a democratic polity.

The Government of India and Government of Gujarat merit special mentions for helping the Trust build the Memorial. To mark the 125th birth anniversary of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee, the then Prime Minister of India, dedicated the Memorial to the nation on April 11, 2000.

Sardar Vallabhabhai Patel Memorial Fund, Karamsad was established in 1964 by eminent personalities like Shri Moraraji Desai, Balvantray Mehta, Ku Maniben Patel, Tribhuvandas Patel & Dahyabhai Vallabhbhai Patel among others. Later, under the presidentship of veteran industrialist Shri J.V.Patel and able guidance of Dr. H.M.Patel, ICS (Rect.), a civil servant of High caliber, a new Sardar Patel Trust was formed.
