Sadhana (साधना) - Marathi weekly publication

Sadhana (साधना) is a Socialist Marathi weekly publication that was established by Pandurang Sadashiv Sane (Sane Guruji), a leader of Rashtra Seva Dal, on August 15, 1948. It was edited by Marathi writer Shankar Dattatraya Javdekar from 1950 to 1952. Yadunath Thatte became Sadhana's editor in 1956 and continued to lead it until 1982. G.P. Pradhan was the next editor of the weekly.

In the early 1970s the magazine provided a forum for voices from the Dalit Panther movement, who were revolting against the treatment of low castes in Indian society. Some of the Dalit writings published by the magazine were considered to be inflammatory by the middle class and even led to calls to ban the concerned issues. Sadhana brought the Dalit activists to the attention to the Marathi intelligentsia, and gave an impetus to the growing dalit movement.

The magazine served as a voice for Socialist thought in India and played a key role in the mass awakening during the 21-month long Emergency Rule in India that was imposed in June 1975. In July 1976, the Government of India led by Prime Minister Indira Gandhi intimidated the weekly to stop publication by abusive use of national defence laws.[6] The magazine reopened soon after, after winning a landmark court case concerning press freedom in which Justice V.D. Tulzapurkar of the Bombay High Court along with Justic N.C. Gadgil quashed the government order seizing the assets of Sadhana Press, and struck down censorship orders as arbitrary.

It turned him into a warm human being, in whom the noble and the beautiful blended. He was elected Mayor of Bombay in 1942 while he was imprisoned in jail

His academic career was exceptionally brilliant. He made an underlying reputation as a speaker. He bagged many prizes in the Fergusson College in oratorical contests. He contributed many articles of high literary excellence to the "Kiloskar".

Joshi got involved with the Independence movement when he was a student at Fergusson college in 1924.

In 1930 he participated in the Civil Disobedience Movement and was sentenced to one years rigorous imprisonment. After his release he was again arrested and imprisoned for two years. He was charged with sedition for his speech on "Roy's Day" and sentenced sacrifices entitled him to the high esteem of the people.

Joshi was instrumental in the formation of the Congress Socialist Party in 1934, the Rashtra Seva Dal, and actively participated in Jayaprakash Narayan’s total revolution movement.

In 1935 he was the Secretary of the Maharastra Youth Conference presided over by Swami Sampurnand. With tireless zeal he worked for the success of the Faizpur Congress Convention. He is now the Secretary of the Mass-Contact Committee.

Madhu Limaye

Madhu Limaye

Madhu Limaye was an Indian Socialist essayist and activist, particularly active in the 1970s. A follower of Ram Manohar Lohia and a fellow-traveller of George Fernandes, he was active in the Janata coalition that gained power at the Centre following the Emergency; he, with Krishan Kant and Raj Narain was also responsible for the collapse of the Morarji Desai government installed by that coalition, by insisting that no member of the Janata party could simulataneously be a member of an alternative social or political organisation. This attack on dual membership was directed specifically at members of the Janata party who had been members of the Jan Sangh, and continued to be members of the right-wing Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, the Jan Sangh's ideological parent. The issue led to fall of Morarji Desai government in 1979, and the destruction of the Janata coalition

In retirement, through the 1980s, he continued to write; he was especially caustic on Constitutional issues, where he set himself the task of defending the Constitution in the media against those who would seek to modify it to centralise power, or to replace the Westminster system with a Presidential one, fearing a 'slow slide to despotism.

He showed less antipathy to the memory of Mrs. Gandhi than could have been expected, reserving his anger for Jawaharlal Nehru, who he seemed to think "could have set a standard beyond reproach, but did not."

He was responsible for personally grooming many of the names that dominate Bihar politics today, including Laloo Prasad Yadav and Sharad Yadav.

Goa Liberation movement

He participated in the Goa liberation movement and was imprisoned in 1955. He wrote a book by name of Goa Liberation Movement and Madhu Limaye as a prison diary. The book was published in 1996 on occasion of golden jubilee of the launch of the movement in 1946.
