Modi said as a part of the ongoing ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’ to mark 75 years of India’s independence, a campaign is currently going on to disseminate the untold stories of the history of the freedom struggle. “For this, upcoming writers, youth of the country and the world were called upon. For this, more than 13,000 people have registered till now and that too in 14 different languages. And for me a thing of joy also is that non-resident Indians from more than 20 countries have expressed their wish to join this campaign. There is another interesting information — more than nearly 5,000 upcoming writers are searching out tales of struggle for freedom,” the prime minister said.
Lauding the courage and enthusiasm of a group of eight differently-abled people for creating a word record by waving the India flag on the Kumar Post in Siachen glacier, the prime minister said the “can do culture”, “can do determination” and “can do attitude” of Indians is inspiring.
