This Independence Day, we ask some television actors which Indian freedom fighter they take inspiration from. Read on.
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.
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.
