Death anniversary of #BalGangadharTilak the man who inspired a whole generation of revolutionaries.
It is impossible for me to capture Tilak's life in a single thread, he was such a towering personality, this is a look at some aspects.
Lokamanya #BalGangadharTilak a personality to whom words would do no justice. An inspiration for many revolutionaries including #ChandrashekharAzad who was born on same date. Mentor to Savarkar. Inspired many Indians to raise their voice.
#BalGangadharTilak was born in Ratnagiri, to Gangadhar Ramachandra Tilak a Sanskrit scholar and teacher himself. Apart from Maths,if there was another subject that he took to easily it was Sanskrit. A brilliant but equally mischievous student too.

उसळणारा सागर शांत झाला..

केवळ नेते एकत्र आल्यामुळे स्वातंत्र्य चळवळ सामर्थ्यवान बनणार नाही तर त्यासाठी सर्वसामान्य लोकांना जागृत करून सहभागी करून घेतले पाहिजे. ही राजकीय जागृती राष्ट्रपुरुषांच्या उत्सवातून करता येईल याची टिळकांना खात्री होती.
म्हणून महाराष्ट्रात त्यांनी छत्रपती शिवाजी महाराजांचा उत्सव सुरू केला. या उत्सवाला सर्व जनतेचा उत्स्फूर्त प्रतिसाद मिळाला. एका वर्षी कोलकत्त्यातही हा उत्सव साजरा झाला. याच वेळी त्यांनी सार्वजनिक गणेशोत्सव सुरू केला. लोक उत्साहाने एकत्र येऊ लागले.
श्रीगणेश ज्ञानाची, कलेची देवता म्हणून तिच्यासमोर सांस्कृतिक कार्यक्रम, मेळे, कसरती याबरोबरच विविध विषयांवर व्याख्याने होण्यासाठी राजरोस व्यासपीठाचीही सोय झाली. टिळकांना जे लिहून लोकांपर्यंत पोहोचवायचं होतं त्यापेक्षा समोरासमोर बोलून दाखवता येऊ लागलं.

Tilak was among the first and strongest advocates of ‘Swaraj’. His famous declaration “Swaraj is my birth right, and I shall have it” served as a powerful clarion call to the future revolutionaries of India’s struggle for independence. #LokmanyaTilak Image
He also endeavoured to awaken the political consciousness of people through two weekly newspapers that he owned and edited: Kesari, published in Marathi and The Mahratta, published in English. He vehemently criticized the British rule through these publications. #LokmanyaTilak ImageImage
