The story of Dr Kotnis is true, and a very strange one. Guided by the leaders of the country, goaded by patriotic zeal and urged by his sense of self-sacrifice, this gallant young patriot, valiant soldier and daring doctor abjured home and his all and chose China as his venue to work for the alleviation of the suffering of humanity - primarily the poor, pitiable victims of nefarious aggression.

Dr. Dwarkanath Kotnis was a member of the Goodwill Mission to China, sponsored by the Indian National Congress. The Mission, consisting of Dr Atal (Lucknow), Dr Cholkar (Nagpur), Dr Basu and Dr Mukherjee (Calcutta), and Dr Dwarkanath Kotnis (Sholapur), left the shores of Hindustan in March 1938. Kotnis was the youngest and the luckiest of all as he was the one who never came back home. He died serving the sick and the wounded on the battlefield in China, laying his life at the altar of Liberty.

The proud Chinese wife of the Hindi martyr shed a tear - just one tear; it rolled down her cheek and dropped on the face of her infant son, the little Kotnis, and in that she beheld a peerless pearl reflecting the glory of Hindustan. Meanwhile, in Hindustan, Father Kotnis had breathed his last and the widowed mother had kept vigil with the sacred light burning all the time - hoping and praying in vain for her son's safe return.

In Dwarka's noble death lives a live message - a soul-stirring message, a siren, a song and a slogan for the liberty-loving people of the civilized world.
