भारताची ओळख पटवायची तर ती त्याच्या विविधतेतून संस्कृतीतून पटवावी लागते आणी महाराष्ट्राची ओळख पटवायची तर ती पुरोगामी समाजसुधारकांतून सांगावी लागते . ‘फुले ‘ ,’ आगरकर ‘, कर्वे , भास्करराव पाटील अशा असंख्य समाजसुधारकांपासून ते आंबेडकर , सानेगुरुजी , एस. एम. जोशी,ना. ग.गोरे अशा समाजवादी चळवळीतील नेत्यापर्यंत पोचले की महाराष्ट्र कळतो त्याच पुरोगामित्व सिद्ध होत . गाडगे बाबांच्च्या प्रवचनांतून देवाचं अस्तीत्वकळायला लागत . समाजाच प्रबोधन करणारे प्रबोधनकार ठाकरे , साने गुरुजी , आढाव हया प्रत्येकाची शैली निरळी , समाजाला सर्वच गोष्टी पटतात अस नाही . अंधानुकरणाला संस्कृतीच लेबल लावलं की काहीही गोष्टी खपवता येतात . दुर्दॆव असं की खरच फारसा विचार न करता सामान्य जन आपल्या दः खावर   उपाय शोधण्यासाठी या रुढीचा आश्रय घेतात. बाबांच्या चरणी  भजनी लागतात. स्वताची दुष्कृत्य लपवण्यासाठी स्वत; बाबांनी लावलेली सोय आहे हे  कळण्याच शहाणपण अशा प्रसंगी हरवलेलं  असत . आपल्या अडचणीवर कुणीतरी उपाय सांगेल हया एका खुळ्या समाजुतीपाई समाज अशा भोंदू बाबांच्या चरणी लागतो आणी स्वतः चा पैसा आणी स्वाथ्यही गमावून बसतो . ‘नरेंद्र दाभोळकर’हया पुरोगामी लढवय्याने सत्त्यावर विश्यास ठेवा सांगण्या साठी सार आयुष्य खर्ची घातल . कितीतरी भोंदू बाबांचे बुरखे दूर केले पण समाजातल्या एका गटाला आशा बाबांच्या पदराआड लपून आपले अवैध्य धंदे करायचे असतात . आपल राजकारण त्यांच्या तीरातून पूर्ण करायच असत. या अशा उद्योगी माणसांना पुरोगामी माणसांचा धोका वाटू लागतो . त्यातूनच बुवा आणी बाबा यांच्या खोट्या अनुयायी लोकांकडून हल्ला व टीका सुरू होते. गणपती दूध प्यायला लागल्या पासून महाराष्ट्रात अशा खोट्या अफवांच पेव वेगवेगळ्या ठिकाणी फुटत असत . ख-या खोट्याची शहानिशा केल्याखेरीज कोणतीही गोष्ट स्वीकारायची नाही हि दाभोळकरांची शिकवण. आंगरे धुपारे,  सुया टोचलेली लिंबे दाखवून आणि कोंबड्या-बक-यांचे बळी देऊन देव पावत नाही आणि भूतही  उतरत नाही, हे सांगण्यासाठी त्यांनी ग्रामीण महाराष्ट्रात  दौरे केले. देवाचा कोपही होत नाही, व देव शापही देत नाही हे पटवून देण्यासाठी त्यांनी समाजाने आणि भोंदू बाबांनी निषिद्ध ठरवलेल्या गोष्टी केल्या. ओवाळून टाकलेला नारळ आणि सुया टोचलेली लिंब स्वतः वापरून त्याने कोणतीही हानी होत नाही हे दाखवले.
           
                     हे काम एकट्या माणसाचे नाही हे जाणूनच त्यांनी “अनिस”ची  स्थापना केलि. श्याम मानव यांनी त्यांना चांगली साथ दिलि. सत्याच्या समीप जाण्यासाठी कृतीचा आग्रह धरा, डोळ्यांवर विश्वास ठेवा – अफवांवर नव्हे आशी शिकवण त्यांनी दिलि. भोंदू बाबांचे पितळ उघडे पडण्यासाठी गेली १८ वर्षे दाभोळकर शासनाकडे ‘अंधश्रद्धा विरोधी कायद्यासाठी आग्रह धरत होते. गुप्तधनाच्या हव्यासापायी, संतती व्हावी म्हणून दिले जाणारे बळी, मुठ मारणे, भानामती, जादूटोणा इत्यादी गोष्टींच्या विरोधात अनेक जाहीर कार्यक्रम करून समाजाचे प्रबोधन करूनही सरकार नावाच्या यंत्रणेचे डोळे उघडलेच नाहित. अंधश्रद्धेचा पगडा दूर होण्यासाठी बाबा-बुवांवर आळा घालणे गरजेचे होते, परंतु समजाची मानसिकता आड आली आणि हा कायदा अनेकदा बासनात गुंडाळून ठेवावा लागला. अखेर पाप्यांनी दाभोलकरांच बळी घेतला आणि सरकारचे डोळे उघडले. पुरोगामी म्हटल्या जाणा-या महाराष्ट्राचे केवढे हे दुर्दैव???
             
                   अंधश्रद्धा निर्मुलन कायदा येण्यासाठी पुरोगामी महाराष्ट्राला एका समाजवादी नेत्याचा बळी घेण्याची वाट शासनाला पहावी लागली हा महाराष्ट्राच्या मातीला लागलेला कलंक होय…
