I have already mentioned a few of the national personalities who have contributed to the country and it is been a lot. But apart from above all there are other leaders of the country who did their part in the development of the country and raise it from the small. Without these leaders, I do not think that anything would have been possible for us if those leaders weren’t there for us. Now we are independent and living our lives just because our country got freedom from British rule and our freedom fighters fought till their death.
