Short Speech On Indian Independence Day
Good morning to the esteemed teachers and dear friends gathered here. We have gathered here today to commemorate the auspicious occasion of Independence Day on August 15th. Every year, we celebrate this day with great zeal and joy because it was on this day in 1947 that our country gained independence from British rule. It is a wonderful and historic day for all Indians. For many years, the people of India had been subjected to the cruel behaviour of Britishers.
Because of our forefathers' years of struggle, we now have freedom in almost every field, including education, sports, transportation, and business. People were not so free before 1947, and they were even restricted from having rights over their own bodies and minds. They were Britishers' slaves, forced to obey all of their commands. We have the freedom to do anything today because of the great Indian leaders who fought for freedom against British rule for many years.
Independence Day is widely celebrated throughout India. This day is very important to all Indian citizens because it allows us to remember all of the freedom fighters who gave their lives to provide us with a beautiful and peaceful life. People were not allowed to get an education, eat healthy food, or live a normal life prior to independence. We should be grateful for the events that led to India's independence. The British treated Indians worse than slaves simply to carry out their meaningless orders.
Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Jawahar Lal Nehru, Mahatma Gandhiji, Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Lala Lajpath Ray, Bhagat Singh, Khudi Ram Bose, and Chandra Sekhar Azad are some of India's great freedom fighters. They were well-known patriots who fought tirelessly for India's independence until the end of their lives. We cannot imagine the agony endured by our forefathers. After many years of independence, our country is finally on the right track. Today, our country is recognised as a well-established democratic country throughout the world. Gandhiji was a great leader who taught us about effective methods of freedom such as ahimsa and sathyagraha. Gandhi envisioned an independent India characterised by nonviolence and peace.
India is our mother country and we are its citizens. We should always be ready to save it from the bad people. It is our responsibility to lead our country ahead and make it a best country of the world.
