On the 63rd death anniversary of my revered father, Dr Narendra Nath Pal (October 9, 1902 – August 30, 2017), I bring to you an article, About Our Society, written by him. This article was published in the Amrita Bazar Patrika (English format in Calcutta) on January 4, 1937. The article was written 80 years back in British India. It is for the esteem readers to decide whether they agree with his views that perhaps prevailed in that era, and whether those views still have any relevance in our society or not. Your feedback in the comments are warmly welcome.
