Such a rare and valuable collection of Historical Moments!How many really know the sacrifices our freedom fighters made to get us this freedom? Freedom is taken for granted & unity among us is being disrupted with seeds of hatred being sown and which are already turning into saplings! Sad!!! Really sad! My heartfelt Pranams to our nation and those who got us freedom
