"L o n g    y e a r s ago, we made a  t r y s t with  d e s t i n y  and now the time comes when we shall r e d e e m  our pledge... At the stroke of the  m i d n i g h t  hour, when t h e  world sleeps, I n d i a will awake to  l i f e  a n d  f r e e d o m ." 

||  Jawaharlal Nehru. Independence Day Eve ||


I n d e p e n d e n c e, many say, is a word that is defined by one's perception. For some, Independence may come in the form of taking  steps towards an unknown path whilst others may find Independence to be synonymous to freedom.


On August 15th 1947 India experienced Independence; overcoming the 200-year-old rule of the British Empire, India stood independent. Perhaps, India's independence could be considered the beginning of a new era, a shining beginning to a new chapter.



Many years later, Independence Day in India continues to have utmost importance. India has grown marvellously, both economically and industrially. Yet the culture, religion and love remains as solid as ever in the hearts of many.  Consisting of 29 states and 7 union territories the nation has a staggering population of 1.2 billion. The capital of India is Delhi.


Independence Day in India is celebrated grandly- in fact the day is a national holiday. The day starts of with the Indian flag being hoisted to the highest of points. The Prime Minister, traditionally, addresses the nation- usually listing the many achievements of the nation whilst remembering those that have allowed India independence. Kite flying is an undying tradition that many Indians have adapted on Independence Day; the kites symbolize freedom.


"I'm a lover of my own liberty, and so I would do nothing to restrict yours."

Mahatma Ghandi


We are Indians , Bold and Free, 
We love our country, 
We salute our flag with love and pride, 
And sing Jann Gann Mann, standing side by side.

Independence or Freedom, as we say,  is NOT Free, but comes with a price tag called "Responsibility". An independence without responsibility, leads a person/country on an aimless and directionless path. As a citizen of a free nation and of the largest democratic country, the rights and duties and responsibilities of the normal  people should not end just by voting to a selected few and putting the nation in their hands for the next 5 years. 

Disappointment against the elected few, making social statuses and forgetting them, does not put an end to the problems. A free nation must be a responsible nation, where every citizen is responsible and accountable for his or her civil rights and duties, there by contributing to the drive of the nation in a more progressive and positive way towards a brighter destination .

Independence day doesn't mark an end of Freedom struggle, but marks the beginning of a new struggle for self existence with pride, liberty, harmony, peace, prosperity, rational thinking and development.

On this 67th Independence day, this one quote I feel is very apt , "Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country." John F. Kennedy, this must be remembered by every individual before questioning the flaws of a free and independent nation.

Happy Independence to all Indians across the globe :)

Jai Hind !!

For Me Independence Day means a holiday for sure LOL but on a more serious note , I just love to tune into DD national channel and watch all the Parade and stuffs that are shown every year ,It just gives a patriotic and proud feeling knowing what our brave freedom fighters did years back to give us a free nation  Thumbs Up

Happy Independence Day to all .. We are in the 21st Century now and I wish when we look back at our brave freedom fighters , we can just take a leaf out of their book and continue to fight for our freedom and be self-independent always Approve ...At least thats what I do every year  , just read or watch the old stories of our freedom fighters and continue to take inspiration from them which can help me in building my own self-confidence whenever I have to face any hurdles in my life ...

Living outside India for my entire life doesnt seem to have reduced my patriotism and love for the nation, and I'd have to credit my teacher, Ms Manju for it, who instilled a love for the nation in our hearts. Independence Day is a moment of great pride and honor for us, since that was the day we attained freedom from the British and became a sovreign nation. But, are we actually Independent? 

With the atrocious crimes being commited against women and children, the multiple cases of fraud, corruption and this what Mahatma Gandhi and Bhagat Singh fought for? This Independence Day, let us take a moment to actually ponder and reflect over what are we doing for our country. Swatantrata Divas Ki Hardik Shubhkaamnaayein.

This is what some of the DT at India Forums had to say, but what does Independence Day mean to you?

Ahh I was waiting for this thread. Thank you and beautiful thread.

Wishing India a very HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY! I've never lived in the country, but when I visited in 2005 I fell in love with it. Born and brought up in the US, but phir bhi dil hai hindustani!!! :)

Wishing all my Muslim friends and the country of Pakistan a very happy belated Independence Day!!
