A floral tribute to G.V.Mavalankar,the first Speaker of Lok Sabha as flashed on the f.b. on Dec.22,2010.

Bishwa Nath Singh :

If any one raises a question as whose Speaker ship made its greatest impact on our parliamentary institutions in our country India, unhesitatingly the answer would be Ganesh Vasudev Mavalankar, fondly remembered as Dadasaheb Mavalankar on whom the title 'Father of the Lok Sabha' was conferred by none other than Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of our country. As Speaker of the first Lok Sabha ( lower house) of a newly born country after getting independence from British Colonial rule that had extended to over two centuries, his role was not merely that of a moderator and facilitator of its proceedings but of a Statesman.

In this Photo,G.V.Mavalankar was seen with his wife & son at Mumbai on Sept.12,1953.I wonder as why he was not nominated for our nation’s highest award “ Bharat Ratna” during all these years .It is high time that we can raise this issue with all sincerity at our command and impress on the Union Govt. to re-think over the issue and award him posthumously” Bharat Ratna” as he deserved no less than any one who have been awardees, so far.
