Happy Independence Day…

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

This 15th August will mark the 72nd Independence Day in India. It is on this day way back in 1947 when India became free from British regime. Independence Day is one of the national festival celebrated across the country apart from Republic Day and Gandhi Jayanti which are observed on 26th January and 2nd October respectively.

Indian freedom struggle consists of sacrifice, martydom, motivation, learning and preserving the culture. There were several who sacrified their lives for the cause of nation. The first war of Independence was fought in 1857 which ignited the zeal to get rid of British regime and make India free from any colonial rule. The 90 years struggle and fight ultimately gave us independence on 15th August, 1947 which also came with massive communal riots across the country due to the bloodshed of partition which divided India into two separate nations; India and Pakistan. Many sons of mother India lost their lives to bring freedom and have our own way of living. This independent India which we see today is because their immense contribution and it is our duty to preserve it and pave the way for its betterment. What we do should do good to us and the nation as well. It should be in the national interest.

On this auspicious day, Prime Minister of India hoists the tricolor at Red Fort, New Delhi and addresses the nation. Since 2014, Mr. Narendra Modi is the Prime Minister and this will be his 6th Independence Day speech. It is also the first Independence Day celebration post scrapping Article 370 which gives special status to the state of Jammu & Kashmir. Remember, recently Article 370 of the Indian Constitution was scrapped by the President’s order and Parliament also passed the bill which got President’s consent to bifurcate Jammu & Kashmir into two Union Territories; Jammu & Kashmir (with Legislature) and Ladakh (without Legislature).

On this eve, I would like to wish all of you a very happy Independence Day. 🙂  Do good to yourself and make our country pride with your work and deeds. Stay united as there are many forces who are trying to disturb the situation post disruption of Article 370. So it’s up to us to keep calm and be patient enough in order to not to get carried away with fake news and rumours. Be united, a humble appeal to all of us. Once again, a very happy Independence day to all of you. Celebrate, enjoy the day and last but not the least, be happy always… 🙂 🙂
