Speech by Shankar Abhyakar on Veer Savarkar

Few days ago, I listened to a great speech series (in Marathi language) given by Vidyavachaspati Shankar Abhyankar on Swatantryaveer Vinayak Damodar Savarkar. (

I have always admired greatness of Savarkar. He was a fearless freedom fighter, social reformer, writer, dramatist, poet, historian, political leader and philosopher to name a few. After listening to the speech, my respect about him got multiplied by thousand times. A good amount of information about Veer Savarkar and some of his books are made available at in both Marathi and English languages. Please read and get inspired !

Vande Mataram !

    veer savarkar was a monk. unless he was not a monk he would have not spent in cellular jail for ten years. But unfortunate is our young heroes does not know anything about him. veer savarkar was fire. we need big heart to accept him. we have narrow vision we cant accept savarkar's. he was not only a freedom fighter he was an institution. he was everything. he was whole we are not even part of that whole. respect him. try to know him. read his books. we will get tears; vande matram
