Description

This biography of Lokmanya Tilak was written in collaboration by Prof. A.K. Bhagwat and Prof. G.P. Pradhan in 1956, the birth-centenary year of Lokmanya Bal Gangadhar Tilak. The book was awarded a prize in the All India Competition held under the auspices of the All India Congress Committee. Dr. S. Radhakrishnan had written the foreword to this biography.

It is sometimes disturbing to think afresh of the idols of one’s early years. A discovery of the unknown facets of their personalities and also of their limitations make one doubt the validity of every judgment of one’s past. We began studying Lokmanya Tilak’s life and work with a similar misgiving. However, the multi-spendoured personality of Tilak, both as an individual and as a leader, was so absorbing that till the end we were oblivious of our initial apprehensions. During the days of our work we could recreate for ourselves the intellectual and political climate of the age of Tilak. We would cherish the memory of these days as one of the most exhilarating in our lives.

The competition sponsored by the All- India Congress Committee on the occasion of Lokmany Tilak’s birth centenary celebrations prompted us to undertake the writing of this book. We were singularly fortunate in having the guidance of the late Acharya S D Javadekar, a political philosopher of modern Maharashtra. He stimulated our minds, corrected some of our judgments, and helped us perspective on Tilak and his times.
