We do not tell stories, we let the stories speak for themselves. Over a hundred years ago, the ”Social Club” of our community in Bombay started a broadsheet - the ‘Kanara Saraswat Quarterly’ which was soon became the ‘Kanara Saraswat' Monthly ... and many eager opinions were expressed on paper. The ambit of ideas expanded from local to provincial to National. As education spread, so did the mobility of people, and of ideas. Women contributors of articles increased, as did the subjects on which people expressed opinions.

We have dipped into this cornucopia of heritage thought to bring you the very best of these unique writings. At a time when education, particularly in The English language was the privilege of a few, those who wrote did so on a spectrum of subjects. The times were interesting, ideas proliferated as frogs do during monsoons!! The socio-religious ferment in the community kept pace with political and economic events in the country; democracy of ideas oftentimes outstripped democracy of practice. While contributing to the improvement of society at large, the Chitrapur Saraswats did not lag behind in, so to speak, ”pulling itself up by its bootstraps”, and helping in the betterment of whichever areas it settled in. There never was a Golden Age [except in our imagination] and each phase in time has seen its struggles, its efforts, its successes and failures. We chronicle them all, in the hope that successive generations that read them will find word pictures that mirror the community's past, and those generations' solutions to bridge the gaps, creating hope for the future.  After all, hope is the spark plug for our mental engines.
