BAL GANGADHAR TILAK

Dedicated To The Country

Tilak, being a double graduate, could easily have got a well-paid job like others, under the British. But, as he had decided when he was young, he dedicated himself to the service of his country.

The concept of Swaraj had yet to blossom in the minds of the people. They had to be made to feel that thirst for independence. Patriotism had to be nurtured. To lay a strong foundation for a new way of life, an educational institution reflecting Indian culture had to be estab lished. EveryIndian had to be taught about Indian culture and national ideals.Good citizens can bemould ed only through good education. Such were the views of ' Bal Gangadhar Tilak.

His classmate Agarkar gave him full support. As Tilak and Agarkar were work- ing out the plans for a system of education which would make students truly useful to the country, another great person, Vishnu- shastry Chiplunkar, joined them.
