Especially in today’s world where terrorism and separatism are becoming big threats to common man, visiting monuments erected to commemorate brave selfless people who sacrificed their lives for independence of India, and analyzing and following their philosophies are need of the hour. There could be no better day other than August 15, the Independence Day, for paying homage to them.
