Home Minister Amit Shah addressing ICCR’s international webinar ‘Lokmanya Tilak: Swaraj to Atmanirbhar Bharat’ :
Today is the 100th death anniversary of Tilak Ji. But even today, his personality, his work, his thoughts and the traditions he started are as relevant as 100 years ago.
Lokmanya Tilak ‘s personality was a multi-faceted personality in itself. How can a person can remain rooted despite so many achievements, How to make simplicity a part of one’s life, All these can be learnt from Tilak Maharaj’s life.
‘Swarajya is my birthright and I shall have it! , These letters will remain etched in golden letters in the history of Indian Independence.
There is just half a letter difference between the two words ‘ Maran’ ( Death) and ‘Smaran’ ( Rememberance). It is the letter (S). And some people live their life in such a way that they are remembered forever.
And to add that letter ‘S’ one has to lead their entire life based on values and principles.
