Essay On Lokmanya
Early Life: * When Tilak was ten years old, the family moved from Ratnagiri to Poona (modern day Pune).
He was also conferred with the honorary title of Lokmanya, which literally means “Accepted by the people (as their leader)”.
* Lokmanya Bal Gangadhar Tilak was born in Ratnagiri on July 23 1856, a year before the first war of Independence fought in 1857.
Lokmanya was a title conferred on him by the public while the British called him the “father of Indian unrest”.
* He was a traditionalist- both personally and ideologically.
For him, throwing the Britishers out was the first priority. He dressed in a dhoti, a shirt, a shawl on the shoulder and a red 'Pagadi' (a Marathi cap) on his head.
