Part 11 -Savarkar : The Conclusion

To Read Part 10: Savarkar : The Journey To The End

Friends, I have the idea that reading the series of 10 articles based on Savarkar’s ideology is not enough to know him deeply. But the purpose was to introduce his great work with some glimpses and stories of his life. After reading these articles if someone thinks of reading ‘Savarkar’ thoroughly, it would be great. If we study this ideology fairly and with an unprejudiced mind a revolutionary, socialist, democratic leader and a great author would be revealed.

Savarkar was more powerful than the alchemist to turn the lives of many people to be the alchemist themselves. Once Gandhiji had visited Savarkar at his house in Ratnagiri and asked his wife, Yamunabai ‘How she was able to bare the brightness of that blazing sun and mentioned that he felt dazzled in his company in a few minutes.’

At the end, I remember the words penned by my teacher, Prof.Dr.Anjali Deshpande,

With the presence of the great leader Savarkar, the prison has turned to a temple

With his presence at Andaman the black water turned holy

And his mere presence in the place itself turned holy.
