1891 – Gangopadhyay Taraknath, famous novelist in Bengal.

1977 – Maulana Abdul Ali Maududi, founder of Jamat-E-Islami.

1991 – Durga Khote, pioneering actor. {Earlier, men used to play women in our cinema, because acting was still not a respectable career for women of the soil. Finally, when we got real women playing heroines in our films, they were not Indians. Anglo-Indian, Jew or Parsi women were cast. At such a juncture, the arrival of Durga Khote was nothing short of a landmark. Her first film (Farebi Jaal) flopped commercially but the tide changed when V Shantaram decided to cast her in Ayodhyecha Raja, a bilingual remake of Phalke’s film in 1932. She played Jodhabai, the spirited wife of Emperor Akbar in K Asif’s Mughal-E-Azam (1957), a role that remains unblemished in the collective memory of India}.
