Speech on Independence Day

Today we all gathered to celebrate the most auspicious national festival ‘Independence Day’. As we all are Indians we should keep in mind about August 15th, the day we got independence in the year 1947. This is the day that has been mentioned in the history and we are been celebrating independence successfully form 69 years. We got independence by the sacrifice of great leaders. We all should feel proud that we took birth on land which is meant for peace and sacrifice. Before independence we are totally under control of British people do not have any right to take our own decisions. After independence, India got parliamentary government and had our own constitution. Independence Day is been celebrated by Indians as a sign of that we got freedom from other countries and we independent form Aug 15th 1947. It is the festival that each and every one is eager to celebrate irrespective of their age, sex, race, caste and status.

We must be thankful our forefathers and freedom fighters who struggled a lot in getting independence and not caring about their personal lives. It is the time to remember all freedom fighters like Bhagat Singh, Khudi Ram Bose, Chandra Sekhar Azad who sacrificed their lives Nehru Gandhiji who sacrificed their personal lives just to get independence for our country. Our country India was under control of British rule since many decades and India had become a slavery country. They are people who treated everyone in this country as their family members and cared about our freedom. Finally in 1947 after taking great leader’s lives British people left our country. The happy independent life which we are leading now without any tensions is just because of great leaders and their sacrifice from 1857 to 1947. It is our duty to save our country from future attacks as it our mother land.

Jawaharlal Nehru was our first prime minister after independence. It has been become custom to celebrate Independence Day in Delhi by our Prime minister. Every year we are celebrating our freedom by hoisting flag in Red Fort which is located in our capital city New Delhi. This is the day that every Indian should feel proud to be an Indian as we are the only country that we got freedom through non violence and peace. Our country is developing drastically in the fields of technology, education, sports, finance and various other fields and giving tough competition to other countries. India is also rich in generating nuclear power. Our Indian players are going ahead by actively participating in the sports like Olympics, Commonwealth games and Asian games. Earlier India was under developer country and now it became developing country. Definitely in coming 10 years may be India will recognize has a developed country. It is the responsibility of each individual in India in to fight against corruption activities that make our country back. India is democratic country and framed fundamental rights for best ruling of the country after independence.
