Independence Day - Ritesh Gaire

Picture Courtesy:

15th August is a special day for Indians as they celebrate it as Independence Day to pay tribute to India's freedom fighters and leaders who fought for India's freedom.

It was on 15th August 1947 that India was declared independent from British colonialism. And the reins of control were handed over to the leaders of our country. 

India's gaining of independence was a tryst with destiny, as the struggle for freedom was long and tiresome - witnessing the sacrifices of many freedom fighters who laid their lives on the line.

We should always be grateful to the freedom fighters who fought for freedom. We should thank those men and women who did not bother about their happiness but instead thought of the honour of their mother country. 

They are the ones who gave us the country we live in, the free air we breathe in. They gave us the scented soil we are proud of. They gave us the dignity we deserve as citizens of the Indian subcontinent.
