Social Reformers of India

India has always been a land where people speak up when they see something wrong happening. The stories of the social reforms in India are countless. There are people who have given their whole life for the betterment of the society. Their mission and vision has been very strong. Social reform is a broad phrase that refers to movements established by people of a community with the goal of bringing about change in their society. These shifts frequently concern fairness and how a society’s current reliance on injustices for certain groups allows it to function. A reform movement is a type of social movement that advocates for progressive change, rather than quick or fundamental change, in specific elements of society. A reform movement differs from more radical social movements like revolutions. A lot of people ask for the names of the social reformers in India and here a list of a few of them-
