Long years ago we made a tryst with destiny, and now the time comes when we shall redeem our pledge, not wholly or in full measure, but very substantially. At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance. It is fitting that at this solemn moment, we take the pledge of dedication to the service of India and her people and to the still larger cause of humanity.


-Tryst with Destiny speech, Jawarhlal Nehru, 15th August, 1947.

"Par mat bhulo siimaa par
Veeron ne hai praan ganwaae
Kuchh yaad unhein bhi kar lo
Kuchh yaad unhein bhi kar lo
Jo lauT ke ghar na aaye
Jo lauT ke ghar na aaye"
A Day of Acknowledging the
A Day of Paying Tributes to the
"Sangiin pe dhar kar maathaa
So gaye amar balidaani
Jo shahid hue hain unki
Zaraa yaad karo qurbaani"

Resting their head on the soil, Sacrificed and slept immortal, For those who martyred on ice, Remember their great sacrifice!  The blood that stained the mountain, That blood was that of an Indian, For those who martyred on ice, Remember their great sacrifice!  When the final moment came on, They said they will die now, Be happy! O beloved of the nation, We embark on eternal journey now!  How great were those patriots, How great was their pride!
Jay hind jay hind ki sena
Jay hind jay hind ki sena
Jay hind jay hind jay hind!
The day starts with the Prime Minister of India hoisting the flag at the Red Fort, Delhi. Twenty-one gun shots are fired in the honour of the solemn ocassion. Later, the Prime Minister delivers a speech about the sacrifices Indians made in achieving, what is called - Bharat Mahaan. This ends with the National Anthem - Jana Gana Mana - being sung and the march past.

The celebrations are widespread across India, ranging from the patriots hoisting flags on the rooftops of their houses as well as their vehicles; be it a motorcycle, car or a rickshaw.

Since, it's a national holiday, the public stays home and watches movies, listens to patriotic songs as well as bond with their families.
Here's everyone wishing everyone a

Happy Independence Day India....!

Vande Matram in English -

Mother, I bow to thee!   
Rich with thy hurrying streams,   
bright with orchard gleams,   
Cool with thy winds of delight,   
Dark fields waving Mother of might,   
Mother free.   

Glory of moonlight dreams,   
Over thy branches and lordly streams,   
 Clad in thy blossoming trees,   
Mother, giver of ease   
Laughing low and sweet!   
Mother I kiss thy feet,   
Speaker sweet and low!   
Mother, to thee I bow.   

Who hath said thou art weak in thy lands   
When the sword flesh out in the seventy million hands   
And seventy million voices roar   
Thy dreadful name from shore to shore?   
With many strengths who art mighty and stored,   
To thee I call Mother and Lord!   
Though who savest, arise and save!   
To her I cry who ever her foeman drove   
Back from plain and Sea   
And shook herself free.   

Thou art wisdom, thou art law,  
Thou art heart, our soul, our breath  
Though art love divine, the awe  
In our hearts that conquers death.  
Thine the strength that nervs the arm,  
Thine the beauty, thine the charm.  
Every image made divine  
In our temples is but thine.  

Thou art Durga, Lady and Queen,  
With her hands that strike and her  
swords of sheen,  
Thou art Lakshmi lotus-throned,  
And the Muse a hundred-toned,  
Pure and perfect without peer,  
Mother lend thine ear,  
Rich with thy hurrying streams,  
Bright with thy orchard gleems,  
Dark of hue O candid-fair  

In thy soul, with jewelled hair  
And thy glorious smile divine,  
Lovilest of all earthly lands,  
Showering wealth from well-stored hands!  
Mother, mother  mine!  
Mother sweet, I bow to thee,  
Mother great and free!  

Have A Nice Day!.
