We all know the sacrifice of freedom fighters can we call we have freedom. Once Nehru Frist Prime Minister of India said, “Long years ago we made a tryst with destiny and now the time comes when we shall redeem our pledge, not wholly or in full measure, but very substantially. At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom.” From Peasants, Artisans and Craftsmen to working group, middle and lower middle class to Indian Capitalist class to Modern Indian Intelligentsia to Traditional intellectuals to Zamindars, Landlords, Princes, Tenants, Bureaucrats, Clerks, Rich and Poor freedom struggle in India made Athma Nirbhar Bharat or not.

Mahatama Gandhi said, “It’s the action, not the fruit of the action, that’s important. You have to do the right thing.

Finally, are we athma nirbhar Bharat, Yes, my dear athma nirbhar Indians from the first person to last freedom fighters and present all soldiers showed us how they were athma nirbhar Bharat and more bloodshed happened, but still we are “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam वसुधैवकुटुम्बकम्” means “Vasudha”=the earth; and “Kutumbakam”=family.
Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam is a way of thinking that teaches an understanding that the entire world is one family. It is a way of thinking that attempts to encourage a belief that the whole of humankind is one family. It is a humane way of thinking radiating from a profound understanding that the entire humanity is made of one life vitality. And we are Athma Nirbhar Bharat.

It is said in our scriptures – EshahPanthah That is – self-sufficient India,” said current Prime Minister Modi. Today President of India said, “Our brave soldiers laid down their lives defending our borders. Those worthy sons of Bharat Mata lived and died for national pride. Their bravery in combat has demonstrated that while we believe in peace, we are also capable of giving a befitting response to any attempt of aggression”. Today every Indian mantra is Athma Nirbhar Bharat, so to all my dear Indians a very Happy 74th Independence Day, Vandematharam Jai Hind.
