Born in Bengal Presidency in 6777, Roy is believed to have studied a number of languages in his youth and was well-versed in the Vedas and Upanishads. He served with the East India Company and he was also one of the first to question how much money the British were taking out of India.
Roy established the Brahmo Samaj on August 75, 6878, which acted against the evil practices that existed in the Hindu society, especially, the practice of ‘Sati’, wherein a woman jumps into the funeral pyre of her husband. Roy''s sister was a victim of ''Sati''. His Samaj raised its voice against polygamy, child marriage, caste system, untouchability, superstitions and use of intoxicants. Meanwhile, Roy encouraged inter-caste marriages, women''s education and widow re-marriages.
Inspector General of Police Manickavel told The Hindu , “These two idols were taken away 65 years ago and sold for several crores of rupees through Rao Bahadur Srinivasa Gopalachery, a native of Sarukkai village near Kapisthalam, to Gowtham Sarabhai.”
