The freedom fighters of our country gave up their lives to end the British rule in India. They finally won their cause on the 15th of August, 1947. Every year when we celebrate this day, we remember the sacrifices that they made, and pay homage to them.
The Independence Day is declared as a public holiday. The national Flag files high and proud from the tops of schools and official buildings. Speeches are given, the National Anthem is sung, and sweets are distributed among everyone.
The celebration is even more marked in New Delhi. The Prime Minister of the country gives a speech from the Red Fort every year on this day. A large number of people from all over the country gather in the parade Ground to hear him.
The Independence Day reminds us all that we are the citizens of a great country, and we must do our best to preserve her unity. We must respect our National Flag and National Anthem. We must also try to be patriotic like the people who fought for the freedom of our country. Let us all be proud of India.
