SACRIFICED HIS THRONE
Ex. Ruler of Bajang foreswore the caste system and was scorned by his people.
Among the 247 Devotees of many religions who will address the World Fellowship of Faiths at Chicago next month is an Indian Prince. This Prince has foresworn the age-old caste system because of his belief in the brotherhood of man and has made himself an out cast among his own people.
He is the Rajah Jai Prithvi Bahadur Singh, ruler until his abdication in 1914, of the State of Bajang in the independent principality of Nepal, Between British India and Tibet, in the High Himalayas. He once presided over a court in robes of oriental splendor. He is now with no retinue except a secretary, living in a simple room with bath and appearing only in occidental dress.
He arrived Wednesday on the Bremen. He expects to leave for Chicago in about ten days to appear at the fellowship meeting sponsored by such men as Bishop Francis J. McConnell, Newton D. Baker and Professor John Dewey.
Tells of Philosophy
At the Hotel New York, where he is staying, he told yesterday something of his philosophy and, smilingly, in response to questions, some of the sacrifices he has made for it. He has named his philosophy “Humanism” and founded humanistic clubs in many part of Europe.
