The Indian Independence Day and Its Roots

India celebrates its Independence Day every year, similar to other nations. The 15th day of August is special for Indian citizens because they remember the freedom that their country attained years ago. India received its independence in 1947. The British finally ceded its control and authority over the nation that time.

The Indian Independence Day is held every year to remind people about the great leaders who gave their lives for the ultimate cause and allowing those at present to enjoy freedom. On August 15, 1947, people cheered as the nation was declared to be a free country. The first Prime Minister of the independent country was Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. Other leaders were known to have fought for Indian freedom, such as Subhas Chandra Bose and Mahatma Gandhiji. Millions of Indians were overjoyed when they realized that they were finally free people. The past Indian leaders gave much for the country to be free and have its own government.

August 15 is a national holiday in India. Every Independence Day, the national flag of India is displayed at the capital city by the Prime Minister. There are also other festive activities and parades held on the streets in New Delhi. Sometimes, the nation’s military leaders will feature some of the advanced weaponry that the country owns to show how well the nation has grown and developed through the years. The white, green and saffron colors of the flag of India can be seen at various places. There are standard Indian flags displayed at government buildings, schools and homes. Children also display miniature versions of the flag.
