What the Indian Freedom Movement Would Look Like in Digital India

Indian Freedom Movement

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:

And his Whatsapp messages to Jawaharlal Nehru:

Movements and Campaigns would be managed on Whatsapp Groups:

YouTube would be flooded with revolution videos:

Instagram, with pictures of significant moments:

Meanwhile, Facebook and Twitter updates would look something like this:

And the leaders of the world would be boasting on Snapchat:

Since there are better ways to communicate, managing relationships would be easy:

And Indians could support the movement with contemporary khadi merchandise:
