वीर सावरकर के शब्द

Veer Savarkar once started addressing a public meeting in Hindi at Bangalore .
The crowd started shouting "Speak in Kannada. We will hear only in kannada."
Veer Savarkar replied " Friends, I have spent 14 years of rigorous imprisonment in ill famous Andaman Jail where all freedom fighters were kept in jail. I have learned Bengali from the freedom fighters coming from Bengal , Hindi from those coming from Uttar Pradesh, even gujarathi and
punjabi. Unfortunately there was none from Karnataka from whom I could have learned Kannada."
...and there was pin drop silence.
