Honourable chief guest, respected seniors and my dear friends,
It is a moment of great pleasure and pride for me that I have got an opportunity to speak a few words today, on this occasion of Independence Day. 15th August is the day, we Indians are very proud of. It is this day when we got freedom from the martinet rule of The British East India Company. If today we are breathing in this free air, it is all because of our great freedom fighters who laid their lives for the independence of our country.
India was a land of wealth titled as "Golden Bird". The British entered India in the name of trading and slowly with their cunning strategies started capturing our country. The policy that they used to break us was "Divide and Rule". As every one of us is aware, India is a land of diversity and the British took advantage of this. They divided us in the name of region, religion, caste and creed. We like fools got trapped in their plan and lost every bit of our land.
After several years when their atrocities became intolerable some revolutionists like Bhagat Singh, Chandra Shekhar Azad, Subhas Chandra Bose, Rani Laxmi Bai, Lala Lajpat Rai and many more took the bold step to fight against the British rule. One major thing they did was to make their fellow countrymen aware of the British strategy of trying to divide the country to establish their rule. After a lot of efforts they were successful to unite the Indians to fight back against the British and achieve independence. It is for this independence that these great freedom fighters happily sacrificed their lives.
All the way through these years our country has witnessed several ups and downs. We have seen our country prosper in the field of education, science, technology, infrastructure, agriculture and industrialization. At the same time, we have seen a no. of evil activities like some major terrorist attacks and other political scams which have led us down. But the spirit of our country still remains the same.
Today we are here to pay tribute to the sacrifices of the great heroes and salute the spirit of unity among us. We should always remember that we are one, from Gujrat to Bengal and Kashmir to Kanyakumari. No matter how hard some smart politician try to divide us on language, region etc we should understand that this is only for some of their political advantages and not for the benefit of the country. So on this Independence Day we should take a pledge that we would work for the nation and its unity with our full dedication.
