उन दिनों महादेव गोविंद रानडे हाई कोर्ट के जज थे। उन्हें भाषाएँ सीखने का बड़ा शौक था। अपने इस शौक के कारण उन्होंने अनेक भाषाएँ सीख ली थीं; किंतु बँगला भाषा अभी तक नहीं सीख पाए थे। अंत में उन्हें एक उपाय सूझा। उन्होंने एक बंगाली नाई से हजामत बनवानी शुरू कर दी। नाई जितनी देर तक उनकी हजामत बनाता, वे उससे बँगला भाषा सीखते रहते। रानडे की पत्नी को यह बुरा लगा। उन्होंने अपने पति से कहा, आप हाई कोर्ट के जज होकर एक नाई से भाषा सीखते हैं। कोई देखेगा तो क्या इज्जत रह जाएगी आपको बँगला सीखनी ही है तो किसी विद्वान से सीखिए। रानडे ने हँसते हुए उत्तर दिया, मैं तो ज्ञान का प्यासा हूँ। मुझे जाति-पाँत से क्या लेना-देना ? यह उत्तर सुन पत्नी फिर कुछ न बोलीं। ज्ञान ऊँच-नीच की किसी पिटारी में बंद नहीं रहता।

English Translation

In those days Mahadev Govind Ranade was the judge of the High Court. They had a keen interest in learning languages. Because of this hobby, he had learned many languages; But the Bangla language was not yet learned. In the end, they solved a solution. He started making hajam from a Bengali hairdresser. As long as the hairdresser makes them shaving, they learn from them a language of Bangla. Ranade’s wife felt this bad He told his husband, “You learn the language with a hairdresser by being the judge of High Court.” If someone will see what will be respected, you have to learn a Bengali, then learn from a scholar. Ranade laughed, “I am thirsty for knowledge.” What do I have to do with the caste and the cast? The wife did not say anything after this reply. Knowledge is not locked in a patch of high and low.
