On the occasion of the birth anniversary of #VeerSavarkar posting some of my articles on him in recent past in wake of intense calumny he faces all the time! The much-misunderstood, maligned leader of our times! @narendramodi

His views on social reforms, caste system, untouchability, cow protection etc were way ahead of their times n resisted strongly by the orthdox. An aspect of #VeerSavarkar we r seldom told abt! @narendramodi

#VeerSavarkar sadly gets dragged in contemporary political mudslinging by opponents of @BJP4India or @narendramodi which does a great disservice to his legacy

In the recent controversy where the Rajasthan govt decided to arbiter who was Veer or not in histort textbooks, i spoke to @sudhirchaudhary on @ZeeNewsHindi on the fallacy of this argument #VeerSavarkar

The song that epitomizes #VeerSavarkar 's patriotism n love for the country, on par with Bankim's Vande mataram in my view, immortalized in the voice of Bharat Ratna @mangeshkarlata ji--- Jayostute Jayostute Sri Mahanmangale Shivaspade Shubhade!
A revolutionary with the heart of a passionate poet..#VeerSavarkar penned this immortal song "Sagara PrANa taLamaLalA" sitting with Niranjan Pal at Brighton after the execution of his aide Madan Lal Dhingra in London. Immortalized by the Mangeshkars!

Images from my field visit to Bhagur n the house where #VeerSavarkar was born on 28 May 1883 to Damodarpant n Radhabai. The Ashta bhuja Bhawani- family Goddess in front of whom he vowed to fight for the country's freedom as a young teenager.
Images from my field research trip to Nashik where the Abhinav Bharat secrt society of revolutionaries was born under #VeerSavarkar , the room where they met n the idol of Swatantrya Lakshmi
The Savarkar Cell in the dreaded Cellular Jail in Port Blair where #VeerSavarkar underwent the worst tortures for more than 11 yrs.
