Ram Mohan Roy was a Bengali man from the 19th century. After watching a widow burnt alive as part of a Hindu funeral ceremony, he dedicated his life to improving women's rights and restoring pride in Indian identity.


He faced steep opposition from both the Hindu and Christian elite, but remained unflinching in his cause.

Ram Mohan Roy is widely celebrated by Bengali people worldwide.
