This Beautiful Video Asks, “When Was Your Independence Day?”. People Respond With Heartwarming Stories

After 190 years of the British rule, August 15th 1947, was a day that changed the course of Indian history. We broke free from the shackles of British Colonialism and set out to build what we see today. And as we celebrated our 72nd Independence Day yesterday, it’s a reminder as to how far we’ve come in this long and arduous journey.

But, is a nation truly independent unless all of it’s citizens are free? We’ve all had or still have, something that stands in our way of pursuing our hearts’ desires. It could be society, health issues, financial constraints, or familial pressure. Despite, all these constraints, everyone has a right to move ahead in life and the day we break free from the things that hold us back is the day we can call #MyIndependenceDay.

This philosophy is one that resonates deeply with the people at Ola. They’ve given a new lease on life to many with their constant efforts to help the downtrodden achieve true independence. Like Meghna Sahoo here.
