The fact that we are so free today is the reward of the sacrifices of lakhs of freedom fighters including Mahatma Gandhi, Jawahar Lal Nehru, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. That is why we should celebrate the independence day by remembering their sacrifices and we should do our best not to let their sacrifices go to waste.
