These men and women are what’s left of a struggle that involved tremendous sacrifices, whose ­significance has only become more ­profound over time. Fighters of the ­anti-colonial resistance against British Raj, they do not just form the bedrock of our national ethos, but also represent a set of values that can still guide the way in our collective strivings to live the ­freedom they once fought for. And on Gandhi’s 71st death anniversary, they spell out the independent India he, and they, dreamt of.
