This is India’s 72nd year of Independence! A country that fought against all odds for its freedom, a country where the countrymen braved it against the cruelties of its invaders or rulers, where all of them came together to build one nation – India!
Today when we walk, breathe and live freely in this country, we must not forget the struggle those brave men went through. The times were tough but the determination failed to fade. The path was difficult but the ambition was firm. Such was the power of mahatma Gandhi’s dream for India that it united the broken parts of the county to form one powerful nation!
This Independence Day, let us revisit the iconic moments that capture India‘s struggle for freedom and India‘s history.
