Keshav Gangadhar Tilak was born on July 22, 1856, in a middle-class Chitpavan Brahmin family in Ratnagiri, a small coastal town in south-western Maharashtra. His father, Gangadhar Shastri was a noted Sanskrit scholar and school teacher at Ratnagiri. His mother’s name was Parvati Bai Gangadhar. Following his father’s transfer, the family shifted to Poona (now Pune). In 1871 Tilak was married to Tapibai who was later rechristened as Satyabhamabai.
When you protect your country, religion is protected itself
"जब आप अपने देश की रक्षा करते है तो धर्म की रक्षा स्वयं हो जाती है "
It was due to Mangal Pandey’s genuine efforts that later the British contemplated their action and ordered the soldiers to use their own greasing (of ghee) over the cartridges. In fact, to solve this dilemma, Lord Canning even sanctioned the proposal of Major-General Hearsey. Mangal Pandey, for his rebellious act, was imprisoned and sentenced a death penalty.
Till today you've seen our loyalty, now you'll see our anger
"आज तक आपने हमारी वफादारी देखि थी, अब हमारा क्रोध देखिये "
Well, he kept his promise, and fired at Lieutenant Baugh. Although he missed his shot, Pandey was able to overpower the Lieutenant with a sword—so much was the zeal that, it is said, the Lieutenant and Major Hudson had to run back to save their arses. It was essentially Mangal Pandey’s efforts that spread the Sepoy Mutiny from Barrackpore to Meerut, Delhi, Cawnpore and Lucknow.

Perhaps Pandey was actually able to understand the true motive of the British—to divide the country into Hindus and Muslims to ease their dominance. Although many people term his rebellion as a portrayal of his “Dharma” as a Bhumihar Brahmin, a lot of people see this as a genuine effort to stop the atrocities of the British. Whether out of his stubbornness or nationalistic zeal or religious ideology, we don’t know, but Mangal Pandey was so much angry and disappointed that, after revolting, he had even vouched to kill the first English person he sees.
Every person should safeguard his religion
"हर इन्सान को अपने धर्म कि रक्षा करनी चाहिए"
During his office at the Bengal Infantry at Barrackpore, the British introduced a new type of cartridge which was, apparently, made of cow and pig fat. Now, both the Hindus and the Muslims couldn’t use the cartridge, as they had to tear it off with their teeth, for religious reasons. It was Pandey who led a group of Indian soldiers to refuse the use of the cartridge.

It's the fight for freedom. Freedom with past for coming future
