"In The History Of Our Country…": Virat Kohli Reminds Once Again Why Independence Day Is Extra Special For All Indians
Today, the Great Country India celebrated its independence with zeal. India gained independence from British colonial authority on this day in 1947. This day is a testament to the struggle and dreams of a billion-plus individuals who work day and night to help this country grow.
Over the years, people from many walks of life have contributed to the development of this country. Sportspeople have also made significant contributions. Their magnificent campaigns on the pitch have elevated India's standing.
Cricket has made significant contributions in this regard. Cricketers have been at the forefront of achieving triumph for the country, from winning world titles to setting world records.
Former India captain Virat Kohli, a star cricketer, reminded everyone of the significance of Independence Day.
"Independence Day is the most important day in our country's history." Especially given how it's celebrated in India and so much going on. It's more special for me because it's my father's birthday.
It was even more spectacular because both events were commemorated. "I have a lot of fond memories of Independence Day," Virat Kohli told Crichistory.com
"It's a day when all Indians are filled with pride for what we have accomplished as a nation since that fateful day in 1947." It fills us all with pride."
Kohli, a native of Delhi, stated that flying kites on the particular day holds a special place in his heart.
"We had a lot of fun on Independence Day." Off-field recollections include waving the flag before heading out on game day. The playing of the national anthem is a source of pride for all of us.
Kite flying is a popular pastime in Delhi. That used to be a fantastic moment. We used to all prepare. Getting ready the night before. It used to be a beautiful windy day to enjoy. "That's a special memory for me," Kohli continued.
