Bal Gangadhar Tilak birth anniversary: Books and inspirational quotes by the freedom fighter

Bal Gangadhar Tilak was born on July 23, 1856 in Ratnagiri of present day Maharashtra, earlier known as Bombay Presidency under British rule. Fondly called as ‘Lokmanya’ meaning accepted as people’s leader, Bal Gangadhar Tilak had a massive following during the freedom movement and the British called him as ‘the father of the Indian unrest’. In addition, he is also recognised as the ‘Father of Swarajya’ as he was one of the first independence leaders to espouse ‘Swaraj’ and incorporate it into the independence struggle.

Here are some books written by the freedom fighter: 

The Arctic Home in the Vedas: Tilak wrote this book in 1898 and published it in March 1903, according to reports. The book is based on the origin of Aryans and the theory of their living at the North Pole during the pre-glacial period. Supporting the aforementioned history, the freedom fighter brought Vedic hymns, chronologies and calendars into the limelight.

Geeta Rahasya: In this book, Bal Gangadhar Tilak has presented his take on the holy book and a comparison of Eastern with Western doctrines. The book also has the english translations of the Shlokas written in Sanskrit.

Orion or the Antiquity of the Vedas: The book covers almost everything from history and archeology to astronomy and mythology. It also shares how India as a country excelled in the past as it put forward a scientific study of the pre-independence era. 

Vedic Chronology and Vedanta Jyotisha: This book brings forth multiple theories and explores the depths and antiquities of the Indian system of approaching these fields.
