MUSINGS FROM GALLOWS: AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF DAMODAR HARI CHAPEKAR (Translation to English)

Damodar Hari Chapekar (25 June 1869 – 18 April 1898) lived at a time when Indian Freedom struggle was not even in its infant stage. He was the first person to introduce methods of secret societies, political dacoity, arms gathering, political killings etc,. in the Indian revolutionary movement with the dream of establishing Hindavi Swarajya like Shivaji Maharaj and Jhansi Laxmi Bhai. He inspired many great revolutionary's like Sri Aurobindo and Savarkar to establish secret societies like Anushilan Samithi, Abhinav Bharat, Yugantar etc,. He warned country men to beware of Congress and called them as mere agents of British. His sharp criticism didn't even left the Tilak, whom he felt far better than others. Under the courtship of Darbari historians, greatest among the Patriots like Damodar Hari Chapekar have become victims and left unsung. He wrote his memories from jail, before accepting the noose around his neck like a necklace with the chant of Gita on his lips and went to gallows. This book is an attempt to revive his memories, because they can give answers to many political questions of today, especially in the civilisational aspects.
