Today in history: Vinayak Damodar Savarkar

Today in history: Today is the Death Anniversary of Swatantryaveer Savarkar. Did you know that the room where he stayed in the Fergusson College hostel has been preserved till date? The room is opened specially for the public on this date! You can also visit the Swatantryaveer Savarkar Memorial, opposite the Vimlabai Garware School on Karve Road which has been built next to the spot where Savarkar burnt foreign-made goods, raising the ‘Swadeshi’ call, during the Independence struggle.
