Savarkar strove to eliminate untouchability, but ended up a political untouchable: Author Dr Vikram Sampath

“If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it” was the main motivation behind Author Dr. Vikram Sampath embarking on an arduous journey of writing three books on Vinayak Damodar Savarkar. During the launch of his book ‘Savarkar: A Contested Legacy’ in Chennai, the author said that the common people had every right to admire or hate a person, provided it was an informed opinion, rather than calumny or pre-conceived notions against the individual.
