Remembering Unsung Heroes of Freedom Struggle


Team L&M

Adani Airports Holding Ltd (AAHL) has launched a campaign to expose our current and future generations to the valor of many forgotten revolutionaries and create awareness about the spark and fire that they held.

These are the heroes who were not part of our popular discourse on Independence, who with the passage of time and generations faded into darkness while the sacrifices of some were never known.

The AAHL campaign is a part of Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav – an initiative of the Government of India to celebrate and commemorate 75 years of independence and its glorious history. It commenced on 15 August 2021 and would be culminated at India’s 75th Independence Day this year. It was after 200-years of struggle that at the stroke of midnight in the middle of August in 1947, India woke up to life and freedom. Yes, it isn’t Independence Day nor Republic Day neither any red-letter day. But it’s today and every day that we should remember the ones who laid down their lives for the free India we live in.

The AAHL, which manages seven airports across the country viz Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Lucknow, Mangaluru, Jaipur, Guwahati & Thiruvananthapuram, is using the public announcement (PA) system and flight information display (FID) screens to create awareness among the passengers about these heroes, forgotten movements and incidents to remember them as also pay a tribute to them.


Each month, as per the directive of the Union Civil Aviation Ministry, all the Indian airports use PA and FID systems to run pre-recorded audio and display messages on the unsung heroes based on either their birth/ death anniversary date or a historically significant date.

The month of May is significant as it marks the 165 years of India’s first large scale freedom movement popularly known as the first War of Independence in 1857. The AAHL is creating awareness about six revolutionaries – Pursottam Kakodkar, Pritilata Waddedar, Alluri Sitarama Raju, Durgabai Deshmukh, Kartar Singh Sarabha and Bishni Devi Shah.
