But my revered friend, Mr. tilak said that this scheme is very much better than the Bengal scheme or any other scheme.
His associates asked him why he had dared to alter his tilak or sect-mark.
It is a very different influence from that of Mr. tilak, to whom he is sometimes, but quite wrongly, compared.
Mr. tilak belonged by birth to a powerful Deccani Brahman caste with hereditary traditions of rulership.
His private life is unimpeachable—the only point indeed in which Mr. tilak resembled him.
But it is not too much to say that the unanimous feeling of educated India went with Mr. tilak and regarded him as a martyr.
