Independence Day 2019: Time to Rejoice the Freedom and Sovereignty of India

“Dil se niklegi na markar
bhi watan ki ulfat
Meri mitti se bhi
Khushboo-e-watan aaegi”

These patriotic lines by Sardar Bhagat Singh enlighten the significance of freedom which was achieved after a long struggle from the British ruling over India. In History, India has faced several invasions, but British rule being one of them was spreading its wings and influence in the entire country consolidating their ruling power. Freedom fighters, who understood the importance of freedom, emerged and managed to inspire Indians in every direction with slogans like “Swaraj is my birthright and I shall have it” or “Tum Mujhe khoon do mai Tumhe Azadi Dunga”. It was the result of such revolutionary movements’ and series of battle which led India free from the chain of slavery on 15th of August 1947 and began to breathe in secular and free air.

With immense pride and preparations, India is going to celebrate its 73rd Independence Day on 15th August 2019. It is celebrated as a national holiday with flag hoisting, parade and fireworks.
