India will remember its freedom fighters and revive the history associated with them, as a part of the celebrations, said Modi. “I had asked the youth to research and write on our freedom struggle on one of the earlier Mann Ki Baat episodes. The purpose of this exercise was to make young talent, thinking and opinion come forward. I was pleased to find that more than 2,500 youths carried out this task,” he further added.
