India is all set to celebrate 75 years of independence on August 15 this year. It is one of the most significant days in the life of every Indian.
On this note, celebrities talk about what Independence Day means to them. They also talk about their favourite freedom fighter, patriotic song, and patriotic film. Read on:
My favourite freedom fighter is “Subhash Chandra Bose” and my favourite patriotic film is “Border”.
ujwal bhavishya ka laksha bhed karne porush ka tir chale, vah path pawan baan jata hain jise path se hokar veer chale.” This is the poetry written by my father.
At the moment it’s just become a day where we get holiday and spend time with our family, watching parades. When I was in Delhi we used to fly kites but it is not happening anymore. As you wake up in the morning of Independence day the most amazing thing that happens is patriotic songs start to play on loud speakers. It reminds us that millions of people of our country have sacrificed their life so that we can live in our country. We did get freedom from the people who were dominating us and literally destroying us. I’m glad all our ancestors, grandparents, whoever sacrificed their life. They sacrificed for the new generation so that they can contribute something to our life which they have. I’m just hoping somewhere down the lane we all get together and celebrate this day. Remembering all the people who have sacrificed their lives for us. We need to be free from the cocoon we are stuck in. Mahatma Gandhi Ji is my favourite freedom fighter. I have read his book My experiments with truth and it is really amazing. He valued truth in his life. I try to follow his path and make truth a part of my life. He is an important part of our independence. I try to be like him. Ghar chale hum fida is my favourite patriotic song. Manoj Kumar Ji has made a lot of films related to patriotism. I was recently a part of Shershaah which is also a good film. Rang de basanti and Tirangaa are also my favourite.
Independence means freedom. It means a lot to me as an Indian. It means taking responsibility for our own decisions and living on our own terms. My favourite patriotic film is “Shershaah” and favourite song is “Jaihind ki Senaa”.
Independence means rebirth of my country. We are living our life happily because of our freedom fighters. We can breathe freely. It is significant for me because it gives me a sense of Pride. I feel very proud when I realise, our India was under British rule for so many years, with the help of the freedom fighters and the leaders we are living our lives freely today. My favourite freedom fighter is Bhagat Singh. I love the films of Manoj Kumar. The film is always patriotic. My favourite patriotic song is “Mera Rang De Basanti Chola“.
