The correct answer to this question is Narayana Guru. From India, he was a spiritual leader and social reformer. His family was of the Ezhava caste, which was regarded as Varna, meaning they have no color or class. Due to how people viewed his family, Guru started a movement for reform.

The purpose was to promote the idea of equality. Many disciples followed him, including T.K Madhavan and Muloor S. Padmanabha Panicker. His concepts and principles are still relevant today, and since his time on Earth, there have been movies and books written about him to keep his name alive.

Narayana Guru was born in 1855, lived until 1928 and was a spiritual leader and social reformer in India. He led a reform movement in Kerala opposing the casting system in Kerala to promote social equality. Guru was the quintessence of all virtues, values, and rare qualities not often found in humanity.

He encompassed mysticism, philosophy, science, and social reform, and much more. In 1881 Guru became a public figure as a social reformer, traveling through Kerala and Tamil Nadu. During his journey, he met a social and religious reformer where he learned to yoga and meditation. He made efforts to provide education for all children regardless of their station in life, and he persevered to end casteism.
