“We were men with our brains in a fever heat with the thoughts of the degraded condition of our country and after long cogitation we had formed the opinion that the salvation of our motherland was to be found in education alone.

~ Bal Gangadhar Tilak, describing his and GG Agarkar’s thoughts, in 1919; Lokmanya Tilak: A Biography by A.K. Bhagwat, G.P. Pradhan
