Lalmohan Ghosh

Lalmohan Ghosh (1849–1909) was the sixteenth President of the Indian National Congress.

He was born in Krishnagar, West Bengal in 1849. He studied in England and qualified as a Barrister-at-law and joined the Calcutta Bar in 1873.

Ghosh was elected president of the Madras session (1903) of the Indian National Congress.

His social and political ideals were derived mostly from the liberal humanism of Victorian England. He strongly believed the importance of Western education for the people of India as a force to unite the people into one nation and he pleaded for compulsory primary education in India in his presidential address at the Madras session of the Congress.
