India’s Republic Day, which commemorates the declaration of India’s independence from colonial authority, is dear to all of our hearts.
Let’s celebrate Republic Day with Audible.in, channelling the correct spirit of fervour and patriotism! Indian Army: Naam Namak Nishaan is a tribute to the Indian Army’s regiments’ rich history, legacy, and accomplishments.
During the tenure of the British East India Company, most of these regiments were formed. Some even brought their provincial dynasty with them. They’re all known for their different war cries, mottos, and traditions, and they’ve all fought courageously for India on the battlefield.

Jawaharlal Nehru was a towering figure in Indian politics from his election as Congress president in 1929 until his death in 1964, a man who left an indelible mark on the history of South Asia.
Nehru may no longer be alive to respond to his detractors, but there was a time when he competed fiercely in the marketplace of ideas, arguing the most important questions in South Asian history, and was a pivotal role in the debates that formed India.
Puffin Lives: Mahatma Gandhi:
Written by Subhadra Sen Gupta; Narrated by Rohini Vij
He was India’s most unconventional leader, as well as one of the most prominent figures whose name is connected with the country’s freedom.
Author Subhadra Sen Gupta portrays the man beneath the simple hand spun clothes, who ate salt-less vegetables and bitter neem chutney; who greeted kings and paupers alike; who walked 240 miles at the age of 60 to break the Salt Law; and whose entire life was dedicated to truth and peace through a vivid narrative.
We know that Gandhiji’s values are alive and relevant to today’s age because we read inspirational narratives of his life and hear about Gandhigiri.
