Summary

Govind Janardan Borkar alias Shri Gajananswami expressions of regret reached our ears from the lips of many friends and clients of the hero of our sketch that they were denied the pleasure of a fuller acquaintance with the life-story of their friend philosopher and guide for want of the knowledge of the Marathi language and idiom. [...] The same freedom of taste and of choice should be freely claimed and allowed in this case and it should be enough for the author before the bar of the critical world to plead guilty to the fact that he likes the hero of his sketch for his simple sincerity and charm of manners and the golden qualities of his head and heart. [...] The family took its surname out the village of Bor which is situated in that part of the Bardesh which came under the sway of the Portuguese who had originally come to the Western Culla of India with the object of trading. [...] It is this that as many of the Kshatriya Bhandari families were navigators and owned ships which plied along the 'whole of the Western Coast of India it was possible for them to migrate without difficulty to the northern parts of the Konkan and settle in favourable and habitable parts of the coast. [...] Many of the Bhandaris also took to the sea built ships of their own and carried on trade along the Western Coast; and some of the more daring even followed the Moors and Arabs to some of the Western maritime countries.
