In Gandhi's Shadow: the (mis)remembering of a rival Founding Father
Nearly 100 years to the month that B. G. ‘Lokmanya’ Tilak (1856-1920) was supplanted by Mohandas Gandhi as the dominant political personality in India, Robert Upton discusses how the memory of B. G. Tilak has been contested and transmitted in the century since his death, and dominated by the idea of Gandhi as a founding father.
