MS Dhoni gives out message to youngsters on Martyrs Day
MS Dhoni gives out message to youngsters on Martyrs Day. Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is known for his patriotic ways, he is an icon on the field and also off it. On the occasion of 'Martyr's Day' or 'Shaheed Diwas' which is celebrated on March 23, Dhoni gave a special message to the next generation of India. Dhoni said, “Personally it is a very important day for me. The modern day youngsters celebrate different days like New Year’s eve, Valentine’s day, Diwali, Eid and Christmas. At the same time it is also important that we look back into our history to remember what happened on March 23. “It is a very significant day because Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru were hanged by the British. It is important to note that Bhagat Singh was just 23. He wanted to do a lot of things. And in a short life span, he achieved a lot of things. “It is important to know our history. The freedom that we have today is because of everyone’s contributions. Dhoni said, I want to tell the youngsters March 23 ki zara yaad karo kurban. If these people were not there, we would not have been able to roam freely like today. We would not have the constitutional rights that we enjoy,” Dhoni concluded.
