I grew up reading about our freedom fighters who gave up their lives so India could be independent, free of oppression & prejudice, where the mind is without fear & the head is held high. Rabindranath Tagores poem is as true today as then #HappyIndependenceDay to my motherland 🇮🇳 pic.twitter.com/CLJPWxeZGm
