IMAGE: Milind Soman : 'Happy Independence day people !! Feel so free running on the highway again after almost 8 months. First day of the Mumbai to Statue of Unity run, will run 56km today and end at Kaner Phata.
'Weather is fabulous, rain, rain, rain all the way.
'This is the first edition of the Unity run on the 75th Anniversary of India's Independence to spread awareness for each citizen of our country to work actively towards peace, unity and harmony. We are not going to achieve this unless we work towards it together.
'Another thing we need to actively work towards, which we have learnt during this pandemic, is to work towards our own health and fitness, so that we can protect ourselves against any uncertainty or unpredictability that life may bring.
'This is our responsibility as individual citizens, to take care of our own health and our own fitness, to make India a healthy and fit country.
'The healthiest and fittest country in the world. Jai Hind.'
