They shared their experiences about the freedom struggle, their active participation and their life in jails as well as their meeting and interaction with Mahatma Gandhi, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Sarojini Naidu, Bipin Chandra Pal etc. It was indeed a unique experience to hear the patriotic songs sung by one of them which had inspired them in their days of struggle.
