Independence Day speech for Indian Independence Day

Here is an effective speech for people who want to prepare a good speech for the occasion of Indian Independence day. Indian Independence Day is at the threshold this year. We will be hoisting the Indian Tricolor with utmost honour and pride and salute it. Most of us wish to deliver a short but effective Independence day speech to address the people at the flag hoisting ceremony.

Respected dignitaries and my dear friends,

On this occasion of great pride and honour, that Indian Independence day is for us, I salute the spirit of India and its people. At the glorious mement, we are all Indians, neither Punjabi nor Tamil, not Hindu nor Christian. I hope to continue this spirit for the coming days and for eternity.

My dear friends, this is the day when the Indian Tricolor was gloriously hoisted at all important places back to 64 years. 15 August, 1947 was the day when the country, its youngs, olds, women and each and everyone had sung to the tune of patriotic songs, tributing the heroes of the fight for freedom. Now we cannot fathom the intensity of the sacrifices of those freedom fighters. Ahimsa or the Path of Non-violence which was chosen as the weapon for freedom fighting by Mahatma Gandhi was the key to achieve our freedom from the British-raj. With time perhaps we are tending to forget the importance of Non-violence. Today as a nation we are lacking patience, we succumbe to violence easily and we are the victims of violence and terror. We are forgetting the power of unity. But this an opportunity to pay a tribute to all those freedom fighters and remind ourselves of their sacrifice.

My young friends, you are still like a piece of clean paper. Like in a paper, anything can be written on your minds, anything can impress your minds. But complexity of life in Independent India, has given you the responsibilty to choose what is better for you. So much is happening right in front of you, that hardly anyone can say that children should not know this or that. You have the TV sets at your reach to watch everything good or bad, you have to choose what not watch, you have to pass the piles of garbage, you need to make way for yourself to pass. Crime against children are increasing and you need to take care of yourselves. You don't deserve these as the citizens of a country which attained it's Independence long 64 years back. Do you deserve this?

Perhaps this is time for change. And you can become the warrior this time. Please be aware of what is going in on arround you. Try as much as you can to avoid things that has harful effects on the enviorment, on the earth. Be careful and cautious while traveling. learn from your elders how to remain safe while travelling on your own. We want and deserve a terror-free India, where children get every kind of opprtunty to build their lives. Not only you who are at least lucky to be here, there are other children who are worrying about what they would eat tonight. Think of them too, when you encounter one of them stretch your helping hand. You can build the new India. With this I conclude my Independence day speech
