My sincere good morning wishes go out to my excellent principal, the teachers, and the rest of the staff, as well as to all of my fellow students at the school.
“Nation First, Always First” will be the theme for Independence Day 2023 this year. will take place as part of the “Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav” events’ schedule. In order to honour the diverse cultures of the nation, the government has chosen to implement a number of activities.
Every year on August 15, India commemorates its independence. India attained its freedom from British dominance on this day in 1947. The 15th of August was chosen as the date for India’s independence because Lord Mountbatten thought it was fortunate. He was preceded by the Japanese army, which had already surrendered on that day in 1945.
The Indian independence movement got underway in 1857 with the Sepoy Mutiny at Meerut, and it picked up steam after the First World War. Mahatma Gandhi led the Indian National Congress (INC) and other political groups in a 20th-century nationwide independence movement and rebellion against oppressive British rule. The Quit India Movement, which pushed for the end of British rule, was launched by the Indian Congress in 1942 as a part of the Second World War. Gandhi and other nationalists, activists, and politicians, as a result, were imprisoned by the colonial government. During the partition of India in 1947, religious intolerance sparked bloody riots that resulted in a great number of fatalities and the expulsion of up to 15 million people.
Furthermore, on Independence Day, we honour our Freedom Fighters because they were the ones who fought for our country and gave their lives in the process. We place a high value on the day we celebrate our independence. Considering that it is the only day we have to honour the country’s martyrs, In addition, it is the one day when we come together as one authentic Indian, forgetting all of our cultural distinctions.
Everywhere in the nation, people celebrate Independence Day with great delight and happiness. On the celebration of Independence Day, people gather for gatherings, fly the Tricolour, and sing Jana Gana Mana, the national anthem. The Day is commemorated in our nation’s capital, New Delhi, with a lot of fanfare. In front of Red Ford, leaders and commoners assemble in great numbers on the parade field. At Red Fort, the Indian Prime Minister raises the flag. Following the hoisting of the flag, he makes a speech in honour of the contributions made by our liberation fighters, concentrating on the accomplishments of the government during the previous year. They also urge future developmental perspectives and roadmaps after mentioning the difficulties that still need to be resolved.
Foreign dignitaries are also invited to this special occasion to witness the momentous milestone. Tributes are given in remembrance of the freedom warriors who gave their lives in the struggle for freedom. The Indian National Anthem, “Jana Gana Mana,” is sung. Following the speech, an Indian Army and paramilitary parade are staged. State capitals throughout all States hold identical events, and the Chief Minister of each state raises the National Flag.
Additionally, it is to explain to them how our nation freed itself from British rule. And the price our freedom fighters paid for their service to the nation. Additionally, it is done so that the kids can learn about the history of their nation. and the manner in which progress occurred in previous years. so that they take their future careers seriously and work hard to improve our nation.
There were many ups and downs along the way, from being a colony under British authority to surpassing the UK to becoming the fifth-largest economy in the world. We experienced flashes of brilliance and had the chance to reflect on ourselves. However, Indians maintained a strong sense of nationalism and patriotism throughout the entire trip. One way we may show our appreciation to the martyrs who gave their lives for the nation is by celebrating Independence Day on August 15 every year.
