“Today we have gathered here to celebrate our 67th Independence Day. As we all know, on 15th August 1947 India got Independence by getting rid of the British rulers. Since then, we got some fundamental rights and the right to call India as our own Nation, our own Motherland. We all are fortunate to born in this Independent India. But, the history reveals how our ancestors and forefathers suffered in the brutal rule of British. Getting independence from the British rulers was not a cakewalk. It took several decades of struggle, right from 1857 when Mangal Pandey, a soldier in British force first raised the voice against British ruling. Since then, several freedom fighters struggled and even gave their life for freedom. How can one forget Bhagat Singh, Chandra Sekhar Azad and Khudi Ram Bose who sacrificed their life in a very tender age just for the sake of freedom? How can the struggle of Netaji and Gandhiji be ignored?

Gandhiji, who was the key person, taught us how we can win a big battle through non-violence. Finally, we got the results of our struggles on 15th August 1947 when India got independence. 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 one among the few Countries, who are rich in nuclear power. We have been number one in the World in sports like hockey and cricket. We have won gold medal in Olympics, have been successful in Commonwealth games and Asian games. In technical fields also, we are ahead of many other countries and all these developments happened just because of the freedom we received as an independence India.

We, the Indians are proud to be a citizen of a free Country having the largest democracy in the World. We have got several rights and most of all is the right to choose the Government. But on the other side, we should also 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 of. There are few people using this Independence for their selfishness at the cost of the pride of our Country.

Children are the future of our Country; we have to carry what we have been given in a better way. We have to grow up as responsible citizens, contribute our best for growth and development of our motherland India. Let us take a pledge on this 67th Independence Day that we will respect our independence and will always keep our National flag flying high.”

This speech was patriotic and more of inspiration to the students. In connection with Independence Day celebration, we organized a quiz program also for our children. Prizes were distributed to the winners. Later, sweets were distributed to all those who participated in the program. Our Principal extended the gratitude to all those who worked hard to make this program into a successful event. A total of 200 students, 50 parents and almost all our teachers gathered in the Independence Day celebration.
