New Delhi: There is no feeling in the world that matches the essence of being free. Free to make your own choices, free to live a life on your own terms, free to enjoy rights that add to the joy of life. However, we Indians earned this privilege after years of struggle.
Talking about patriotism, Bollywood isn't left behind either. Hindi movies have been known to reflect patriotic stories that were nourished on blood, sweat and sacrifices. With an array of movies centred on the idea of patriotism, Bollywood has given us some classics.
