Marathi Manus !
This is the land of Bal Gangadhar Tilak. Of Veer Savarkar. Of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.
All giving their lives in the service of the nation.
Today in this same land we have people bidding for the highest posts of public service. Of others who pick on the weak and feel strong. Of the poor who kill themselves because they cannot even feed their young. Were are we going ? Have we all lost all the fighting spirit which makes this land special ?
Do I have the moral right today to stand up with pride and say
Vande Mataram !! ?
