India moved to its 74th year of independence today with wishes pouring form every sector of the country and from all over the world. PM Narendra Modi unfurled the flag at Red Fort on Saturday morning and gave a wonderful view of the aspirations of the new India. The celebrities from all over the country poured their wishes on this great day to their fellow countrymen.
The cricketing fraternity was also quick to wish the people of the country. Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar were among the first few who wished the citizens of the country on this big day. The two legends extended their warm wishes on Twitter while acknowledging the work of the front line warriors in the pandemic time.
No power can defeat 1.3 billion Indians: Sachin Tendulkar
Sachin, while wishing the people on Independence Day in his tweet, said that 1.3 billion Indians are fighting this COVID-19 battle collectively, “This 15th of August is different. Today is our time to stand up as a collective and be united as one and fight this war against COVID together. No power can defeat 1.3 billion Indians,” read Tendulkar’s tweet.
Kohli also tweeted his wishes while mentioning the great role the front-line warriors have played in such a tough time, “Wishing everyone a Happy Independence Day! God bless our great nation and its countrymen especially the ones who are away from their families, fighting on the front lines to keep us safe. Jai Hind.”
Other cricketers, both former and current players, also extended their wishes to the fellow countrymen on this significant day.
Players have always been active in wishing the people on every great occasion. Since the Independence day carries big importance in every Indian’s heart, one can see a bundle of emotions coming out of every cricketer’s tweet of whomsoever has tweeted. The players have also not forgotten to mention the contribution of COVID-19 warriors in their wishes.
India got independence on 15th August 1947 after years of extensive battle, in which the country lost some great warriors who laid down their lives for the nation.

When patriotism is strong in our hearts, it will find a way to express itself no matter what!
Here's a shining example of how autism can't limit the power of our children’s spirit.
With love & care, all our children can blossom in their own unique ways.
Jai Hind. 🇮🇳 pic.twitter.com/kLAJ4devml
