Action above thought’—this was Bal Gangadhar Tilak’s core philosophy and how he approached most things in life.

Tilak famously opined that by remaining under the rule of the British, India as a country was leading to its own decline and a general sense of emasculation. He urged the young men of the country to protest with everything they had got, and even go to prison if necessary. This meant hitting another nail in the coffin of the British Empire.

In ‘Bal Gangadhar Tilak: The Militant Nationalist’, Ramachandra Guha brings to us a hitherto unseen side of Tilak through the latter’s writings and actions. Read on.
