About Vallabhbhai Patel
Vallabhbhai Jhaverbhai Patel’s commitment to India’s fight against British colonial rule continues to make him a national hero more than seven decades after his death. The barrister-turned politician joined Mahatma Gandhi’s fight for an independent India in 1917 and dedicated almost three decades to causes such as the Quit India Movement, Satyagraha (for tax resistance), women empowerment and campaigning against Caste discrimination. After independence, he became India’s first Deputy Prime Minister and Home Affairs Minister.
He grew up in Gujarat as one of six children born to Ladba and Jhaverbhai Patel. He did not remarry after his wife of 18 years, Jhaverben, died in 1909, over 40 years prior to his own death. They had two children, Maniben and Dahyabhai.
He is credited with the integration into India of former colonial provinces, the accession of self-governing princely states to India and the establishment of the Indian Administrative Service. The Statue of Unity was erected in his honor in 2018.
He died from a heart attack on 15 December 1950.
