Independence Day, he says, is a festival of freedom for us, and that it was made possible by generations of freedom fighters, some well-known and others obscure. They had to make a lot of sacrifices.”
“Our nation, like many others, has suffered immense injustices and tyranny as a result of foreign rule,” he remarked. What sets India apart is the fact that our nationalist struggle, led by Mahatma Gandhi, was founded on the principles of truth and nonviolence.
