Social media has been filled with proud praises for the Indian Air Force after it reduced the Jaish-e-Mohammed's terror bases to shambles along the Line of Control (LoC) of the India-Pakistan border. Celebrities from the film industry also took to Twitter to share their delight, and even who are not that active on social media joined in the joy that the country is experiencing. Lata Mangeshkar praised the country and gave a shout-out to its armed forces, writing, “JAI HIND,JAI HIND Ki SENA.”
Mangeshkar shared a throwback video singing ‘Vande Mataram’ at an event where her sister Usha Mangeshkar, late Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray, Sudesh Bhosle, among others are also standing beside her on stage. The video gives goosebumps every time you watch it, but its impact on this day will definitely be more intense.
The Bharat Ratna also remembered freedom fighter Veer Savarkar on his death anniversary on the same day. Mangeshkar conveyed her respects to him and to the feeling of love for the country. She also shared a video of her rendition of the late leader’s poem ‘Jayostute.’ The singer wrote, "Aaj Swatantrya veer Savarkar ji ki punyatithi hai.Main unke vyaktitva ko aur desh prem ko koti koti pranam karti hun.
