Samadhi of Raja Gokuldas
Statue of Raja Gokuldas
Life came full circle for Raja Sahib with the birth of his grand
children Govind Das and Raj Kumari Bai. He was also lucky to be part of the
marriage ceremonies of his grand children.
In the year 1908, he went to
Sophapur in Hoshabgabad district of C.P. to condole with a relation. Here, he
fell ill. Consequently, he returned back to Jubbulpore. He became restrained
since his return from this tour. He refused to talk to anyone, even to his wife
with whom he confided whenever he felt unwell.
During the day his condition deteriorated. He called upon his grand
children and inquired what they were doing. By nightfall, he grew more uneasy.
He gave away much charity, as if he knew that the time has come for him to leave
20 minutes past ten, on of 1908,
Raja Gokuldas passed away
at the age of 69. But he is still alive, very much part of the Jubbulpore, will
remain in reminiscence of the Central Province for the philanthropic works. But
the public works stand mute to the legacy of this man.
