Best known as the "Father of Marathi Journalism", Balshastri Jambhekar is renowned for his contributions in the field of print media and social awareness. He was one of those social activists who made continuous effort in generating useful and healthy consciousness amongst the common masses and attempted to educate the uneducated. His never-dying talent and endeavor left a stamp over not only the Maharashtrian public, but across India, as a distinguished social reformer and journalist. He was active only for a very short period, but his exceptional work left a permanent mark on India. His birthday and the day of the publication of the first issue of Darpan coincidently fall on the same day. As such, 6th January has been declared as the Journalist Day in Maharashtra in the memory of this endowed individual and is celebrated with much devotion and dedication every year.
