Maharana Pratap Lord of Mewar
From whom every Mughal was afraid,
he was so brave that he exerted so much courage in his childhood,
seeing which the whole world was stunned.
His only AIM was to throw the Mughals out of this holy land.
He did so many sacrifices for the Hindus, which is not possible to tell.

There is no warrior better than Peshwa Bajirao
He was the brave warrior at that time who never lost any battle.
no matter how big a war it is he was always the winner.
He lived two and a half days in one day.
His only dream was Hind Swaraj.
The more I praise him, the less it is
I pay my respects to them !!
Jai Hind !!

The Anglo-American versions never mention the fact that a section of Nagas collaborated with the Azad Hind Fauz (AHF). I cannot now retrieve the source to confirm it, but I did read about a collaborating Naga Youth captured by the British during the battle of Kohima and tortured to reveal the position of the AHF. They were unable to break his silence even as they blinded one of his eyes. Only when they went for the other eye, he cried out a misguiding answer. Convinced, they let him go. He WON.

When Gandhi led a demonstration in Bombay in 1932, the British decided to lock up the leader. There were riots and protests about this all over the country, including a patriotic march by Thyagi P S Sundaram in Tirupur. The protests had people carrying out the national flag, which was banned at the time, in honour as well as in revolt. One of the participants holding the flag was Tirupur Kumaran.
