Lokamanya Tilak always emphasized on making the Indians aware of their glorious past as well as the activities carried out by the British Raj, and also encouraged the masses to be self-reliant, through his writings in Kesari and Mahratta (Maratha). However, in many cases, his articles, according to the British Government, provoked other Indian revolutionaries to take severe actions against the Government. Consequently, Tilak had to face sedition charges leading to his imprisonment on multiple occasions. However, he never abandoned writing articles, and faced every hardship with an undaunted approach.
