Description

‘Lokmanya’ Bal Gangadhar Tilak (July 23, 1856 - August 1, 1920) was a scholar, mathematician, philosopher, and an ardent nationalist. He is considered to be one of the prominent figures of the Indian Independence Movement. He protested against the British rule saying, “Swaraj is my birthright which I shall get it”. He made the masses aware of their glorious history and culture by initiating the celebration of Shivajayanti (celebration of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj's birth anniversary) and the Ganesh Festival. Gandhiji called him “the Maker of Modern India,” and Jawaharlal Nehru described him as “the Father of the Indian Revolution.”
