Indepence day speech in School, colleges and Universities
Respected Teachers, Parents and dear friends
Today we have gathered here to celebrate our 67th Independence day. As we all know that on this day that is 15th August 1947 India got Independence getting rid from the British rule and since then we got some fundamental rights and overall a right to call India as our own Nation, our own Motherland. We are fortunate enough to born in Independent India but history reveals how our ancestors and forefathers suffered in the brutal rule of Britishers. Getting independence from the British rule was not a cakewalk. It took several decades of struggle right from 1857 when Mangal Pandey who was a souldier in British force first raised the voice against Britishers, since then several freedom fighters struggled and even gave their life for freedom. How can one forget Bhagat Singh, Chandra Sekhar Azad, Khudi Ram Bose who lost their life in a very tender age just for fighting for freedom. How can the struggle of Netaji and Gandhiji be ignored. Gandhiji who was the key person taught us how a big battle can be won by non voilence. Finally the result of the struggle came on 15th August 1947 when India got independence and since then we proudly celebrate this day.
In 67 years of Independence we have exponentially progressed in every field right from education, technology, sports, finance and all other fields which were not possible before Independence. India is now among the few Countries rich in nuclear power, we have been number one in the World in sports like hockey, cricket. We have won gold medal in olympics, have been successful in Commonwealth games and Asian games. In technical fields India and Indians are ahead in many Countries and these all development happened as we got the opportunity in free India.
We the Indians are proud to be a citizen of a free Country having largest democracy in the World. We have got several rights, most of all right to chose Government. But on the other side we should remember our duties too. We have to respect this independence for which our forefathers struggled to the extent of sacrificing everything including their lives. There are still some grey areas which we have to get rid off. They are few people using this Independence, rights for their self motives at the cost of the pride of our Country.
We students, children are the future of our Country, we have to carry what we have been given in better way. We have to grow up as a responsible citizen, contribute to our level best for growth and development of our motherland India. Let us take a pledge in this 67th Independence day that we will respect our independence and will always keep our National flag flying high.
