Few days ago, I listened to a great speech series (in Marathi language) given by Vidyavachaspati Shankar Abhyankar on Swatantryaveer Vinayak Damodar Savarkar. (http://www.savarkar.org/en/audio)
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 http://www.savarkar.org/ in both Marathi and English languages. Please read and get inspired !
Vande Mataram !
