Indian Independence Day is day that fills every Indian with pride and instills the feelings of patriotism. The day our India got independence from the clutches of the British Monarchy and providing India the ultimate control over its economic, democratic, social as well as financial issues. As Nehru’s speech states” As the clock strikes 12, the world will witness the birth of the Indian Democracy”. The Indian nation gained supremacy over the Britishers and parted its territory from the Pakistan Nation on 15th August 1947. This was the day when India became an independent nation after the many revolting struggles under the honorable leadership of great freedom fighters such as Shaheed Bhagat Singh, Lala Lajpat Rai, Rani Lakshmi Bai to name a few.
India was ruled and exploited by the Britishers for about 90 years and gained complete legislative control in the year 1947 on 15th August 2017. On this day the first prime minister of our country, Late Pandit. Jawahar Lal Nehru addressed the independent nation and hoisted the national flag at the Lahori Gate of the Red Fort thus introducing the independent India to the world. From since then, it has become a ritual to hoist the flag on Red Fort by the Prime Minister of India and address the nation to witness the changes that India has gone through and the efforts to undertake so as to make the presence of India be felt across nations.
I love my Country and Proud of its rich and varied Heritage!!!
Indeed everyone would have witnessed these lines during their school days during their morning prayers. These may be lines for others, but for Indians they truly depict the nature and spirit of India. India is a massive country not only in terms of its population but also as far as diversity goes. If you look from Kashmir in North to Kanyakumari in South, you will be amazed at the difference in climate to language. If you look at Gujarat in West to Arunachal Pradesh in East, you can appreciate the difference in traditions to terrain. Though India is a developing country but its richness lies in its diversity, culture and its people.
What have you done?
This independence day every Indian should ask themselves about a good deed that they have performed to celebrate the independence of their nation. Just cribbing about the infrastructure or the politics or the sanitation is quite easy, but if you want a change then become that change and observe a difference around yourself. This may sound as very typical modern view, but it is not so. Our great freedom figthers fought for our independence and hence we are enjoying the luxuries of those lifes bled to death while in the Jallianwala Bagh or the leaders who witnessed the Simon Go Back revolt or the farmers who lost their lives fighting against the Indigo plantation movement.
On this 70th Independence Day lets commemorate the lives of all our unsung heros and create an Independent nation free from the societal, economical, and political orthodox views. Gift your future generations a home in their native country that is truly Independent!!!!
