Swatantryaveer Savarkar - A galaxy of virtues blended in a lovely rainbow
Swatantryaveer Vinayak Damodar Savarkar - The very name epitomises many great qualities of head and heart. Rarely in the history of the world has one single man combined so many qualities at one and the same time and all have blossomed so outstandingly. An intrepid armed revolutionary of the freedom struggle, a social reformer, a great poet, an outstanding literateur, a dramatist par excellence, a ceaseless crusader of Hindutva - truly a galaxy of virtues blended in a lovely rainbow.
His demise on 26 February 1966 was unique, for he died through Prayopaveshan, death bv his own wish. In his death, he was a man who had seen most of his life mission fulfiled Physically, he took the last bow on the worlds stage, but his thoughts, the philosophy which he so intensely propounded and untiringly; propagated are immortal and continue to be a beacon to the beleaguered Hindu society.
If in the History of modern India, there was any leader who neither pursued fame nor followed fortune, nor individual greatness, discarding national interests, national integrity and national honour, that great leader was SAVARKAR and as such he would carry influence with posterity. As he was not a party to the vivisection of India, which is a heritage of sorrow and disgrace to posterity and the greatest betrayal ever known in Indian history Savarkar, one of the makers of modern India would be a beacon of hope, guidence' inspiration and courage.
