Freedom Fighters of India: Today’s and upcoming generation would not be able to know the price of independence of India if we are not going to acknowledge them, right?
Behind the Independence of India on 15th August, 1947, there was a big violent and bloody war.

In the age of year 11, he was presented in front of British Court and the Judge asked him his name. He told his name is “Azad”, His Father’s name “Swatantrata (Independence)” and his address ” Jail”.
This answers made all present Indians in that court very Happy but the Judge got too much angry and punished him to hit 15 hunts and Azad accepted this punishment with smile. And from that day he is known as Chandrashekhar Azad!
He was believing in Karma rather than show off, due to this there are very few photos are available!
