I like all freedom fighters those fought for the freedom of our country. But I like five of them in particular. First, I like Mahatma Gandhi. He was a great worshipper of truth and non-violence and used Satyagraha as his weapon to spearhead a non-violent movement.
He is known for his Non- Cooperative Movement, Civil Disobedience and Quit India Movement. Secondly, I like Lokmanya Tilak. He is known as the father of Indian political unrest. He aroused the Indian people against the cruel foreign rule. His well-known words are ‘Swaraj is my birth right and I shall have it.’
Thirdly, I like Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. He was not satisfied with the peaceful Gandhian way. He was in favor of giving a fight to the British rulers to attain Independence. He led the Indian National Army against the English. Some of his famous uttering are: ‘Delhi Chalo’ and ‘Give me your blood and I’ll give you freedom’.
Fourthly, I like Lala Lajpat Rai. He is known as the Lion of Punjab. He was one of the extremist trio-Bal-Pal-Lal. He opposed the Simon Commission tooth and nail and even lost his life having been fatally assaulted by a cruel British police officer.
Fifthly, I like Jawaharlal Nehru. He belonged to a very rich family, but he gave up all comforts for the sake of freedom of India. He spent the prime of his life in British jails. He rightly became the first Prime Minister of India after India attained Independence
