Savarkar: Echoes from a Forgotten Past, 1883–1924


What elements in Savarkar's philosophy can set inspiring yet compassionate future vision for Indian civilization?
  • The demonisation of Savarkar ji by the LeLi cabal symbolises their intellectual bankruptcy if looked in relation to the quality of scholarly work he produced, the hardships he suffered for the national freedom, the efforts he devoted to the rejuvenation of the Hindu race and many of the social reform movements spearheaded by him.

  • Veer Savarkar epitomises scientific thought and an intense, unparalleled love of the motherland. He followed hindutva but also tried to free it from the evils that had seeped into this great way of life. He built a temple where hindus of all caste could pray in. He was of a brilliant mind and his contribution to our country should never be forgotten.

  • Veer Savarkar was one of the very few Hindu Intellectuals who not just set a foundation for what we propagate today as Hindutva. He was a visionary with impeccable clarity on what a Nation must be built & will prosper, a philosopher yet rational, a hardcore Rashtra Bhakt with scientific temper, he was multi faceted genius who created a very wide & deep literature for the hindu society not just to cherish but study, practice & implement. He believed in Karma & understood dharma to its purest form. He was also one of the foremost reformist who started the decolonization long back. We can write so much on him.

  • Nehruvian n Gabdhian thoughts did not set purpose for our civilization. While Non-violence n egalatarian...unlike American Exceptionalism/Frontier Vision, there was no sense of what to pursue or achieve except individual success n maintenance of certain values. There was no sense of continuity of thousands of years of civilization... interrupted by Mughal n British..but now resuming from where it was stopped. Savarkar had this sense of continuity from past as well as moving into the future. But can we enumerate , clarify n discuss these?
