BAL GANGADHAR TILAK

Religion and practical life are not different. To take sanyas (renunciation) is not to abandon life. The real spirit is to make the country, your family, and work together instead of working only for your own. The step beyond is to serve humanity and the next step is to serve God.

CURATOR'S NOTE

I like to think of Tilak as a programmer. He is not too glamourous but he knows how to manage and solve resource constraint problems. He does not think of India as HUGE as it is but he sees it using a modular approach where you need to make progress on an infinitesimal level and that is a real good win too.
