Rashmi Desai
My favourite freedom fighter is Gandhi ji. He­ ­propagated non-violence and fought for freedom with great conviction and courage. I like his statement — Bhul karne main paap to hain hi, parantu use chipane main usse bhi bada paap hain. Gandhi ji proved how one man can be an army unto himself.
Ssharad Malhotraa
My favourite freedom fighter is Gandhi ji. He fought with such an ­amazing grace. His path of non-violence had so much power. I like his quote — Be the change that you want to see in the world.
Ravi Dubey
Mahatma Gandhi is undoubtedly an inspiration for me. He had a clarity of thought and could love everyone. He was also loved by everyone. He could handle everything just by his dialogue and he believed in non-violence.
Arjun Bijlani
My favourite freedom fighter is Gandhi ji. Bapu was an ­amazing leader. He was so firm in his fight, his simplicity is remembered till date. I like his statement — “Live as if you were to die ­tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”

Tina Datta
My favourite freedom ­fighter is Jhansi Ki Rani Laxmi Bhai. I still remember the poem Khoob Ladi Mardani Thi Who Toh Jhasi Wali Rani Thi. She was one of the leading figures of the Indian Rebellion of 1857 and for Indian nationalists, a symbol of resistance to the rule of the British East India company in the ­subcontinent.

Shashank Vyas
My favourite freedom fighter is Bhagat Singh. He was born with a fire raging inside him to fight for the country. He was ­exemplary, brave and one of the most influential ­revolutionaries of the Indian independence movement. “People generally get ­accustomed to the established order of things and begin to tremble at the very idea of change. It is this lethargical spirit that needs be replaced by the revolutionary spirit,” he had said, and that inspires me to embrace change.

Sneha Wagh
My favourite freedom fighter is Subhash Chandra Bose. He was a great warrior. His statement — Tum mujhe khoon do, mein tumhe azadi doonga — inspires me. His contribution and ­revolutionary ideas were ­exemplary. He was a man of substance.
