Respected teachers and my dear friends,
Very warm good morning to one and all present here.
Today August 15, 2015 we, Indians are celebrating our 69th year of independence. Long before India was under the rule of British kingdom. Indians have suffered very badly under the British rule. Today we have all the freedom for education, transportation, business and in every field. But before 1947 it was not such case, there was no freedom at all for the people. It's our great Indian leaders who struggled hard to bring us the freedom with the success against British rule and earned independence to India.
This day is well celebrated in the country with much pleasure. The importance of the day is to remember those freedom fighters because of whom today our life has become so beautiful. During the British rule the children/ kids were not allowed to go to school, no independent trading was allowed. All the goods were taken from India and sold at the British markets with huge prices and giving no profits to the Indians. Indians were treated like slaves. The great freedom fighters Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Mahatma Gandhiji, Jawahar Lal Nehru, Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Lala Lajpath Ray all were the famous patriots who fought for the freedom of India.
