Lokamanya To Mahatma is indeed a rare gem and a precious addition to Indian literature, based on the independence movement in Maharashtra. This book is the translation of the ground-breaking Marathi book ‘Lokamanya Te Mahatma’, that leaves readers spellbound every time it is read.
The journey of any movement for independence is shaped by its leaders. While this is so, it is also true that the decisions taken by the leaders, to a great extent, are influenced by their followers as well as the events that take place around them. Tracing the journey of transition of the leadership of the Indian freedom struggle from Lokamanya Bal Gangadhar Tilak to Mahatma Gandhi, the book presents the reader with a comprehensive, in-depth analysis of the unknown yet interesting facets of history that most readers are unaware of.
Giving a clear insight into the intricacies of the relationship between the two leaders, their independent ways of thinking and the events that shaped it and compelled them to take the decisions they did, the book highlights their respective paths and the results that they brought about. Additionally, it also brings to light the contribution of the Marathi theatre to the freedom struggle.
An authentic, well-researched and comprehensive volume of the political history of Maharashtra during the independence struggle!
