| In the wake of World War I, Shyamji had moved his headquarters to Geneva in 1914.
Due to the outbreak of war, Shyamji stopped the publication of "Indian Sociologist"
and resumed publication in 1920. His last two issues of "Indian Sociologist", as
per his wish, were to be taken as his last will and testament of his work. After
several health problems, the great patriot, Shyamji Krishna Varma, passed away on
30th March 1930 far away from his beloved Motherland.
News of his death was suppressed by the British government in India. Nevertheless
tributes were paid to him by Sardar Bhagat Singh and his co-revolutionist brothers
in Lahore Jail where they were undergoing a long-term drawn out trial. Maratha,
a daily newspaper started by Shri Tilak in Marathi, paid very touching tribute to
him as a great revolutionary.
