Elaborate on the strategy employed by Raja Rammohun Roy and later by other social reformers in order to root out social evils from India.

Answer:

The strategy employed by Raja Rammohun Roy and later by other social reformers shows a pragmatic understanding of social reform in a traditional society like India. Whenever they wished to challenge a practice which seemed harmful, they tried to find a verse or sentence in the ancient sacred texts which supported their point of view. They then suggested that the practice as it existed at present was not in accordance with the earlier tradition. Apparently, this had a much better impact on the psyche of Indians than direct argument and appeal for logic.
