70 years. 70 years since India got its Independence.

We can only imagine how it must have felt like, after 89 years of the British Raj!

But imagine,

What if, the freedom struggle had taken place in the digital age? What if, our freedom fighters were verified on social media and had millions of followers? What if, the leaders roasted each other on social media? What if, we could all rise against the British by simply liking, sharing and following?

Wow.

So, let’s dive into a hypothetical universe, where it’s 2017 and the Indian Freedom Movement has only just begun…

This is what Mahatma Gandhi’s phone would look like:
