The three of them taught math at the Fergusson College in Pune.
'Wrangler' Paranjype was the Principal of the college when Savarkar studied there.
This was part of the nationwide agitation launched by Tilak to protest against the partition of Bengal
The Pune bonfire was led by Veer Savarkar, then a student at Fergusson.
Tilak wrote a strong editorial in Kesari protesting this, titled 'हे तर आमचे गुरू नव्हेच' (They (referring to the Principal) are not our real Gurus..).
What an era it must have been!
Early 20th century, first decade (and last decade of 19th century)...Pune was the political capital of the country.
Ranade, Tilak, Gokhale, Karve, Agarkar...then Savarkar.
