Independence Day

Anupra Dubey

15th August is a red letter day in the history of India. On this day, in 1947, India got freedom from the British Rule. India became a free nation. India got its National Flag. This flag is called Tiranga. Tiranga has three colours: Saffrom, White and India Green with a Navy Blue Chakra having 24 spikes in the centre. The size of the flag is 2:3. It is rectangular in shape.

The Saffron colour of our Tiranga indicates sacrifice, White colour denotes peace and the Green indicates our relation with the plant life. The Ashok Chakra in the middle indicates the wheel of law of Dharma. Tiranga was designed by Shri Pingali Venkayya, a freedom fighter.

On becoming Independent, India got its National Anthem. This is called “Jan gan man”. Its first line is जनगणमन-अधिनायक जय हे भारतभाग्यबिधाता. This anthem was composed by Guru Rabindra Nath Tagore. India also has a National Song. It is called Vande Matarm. It was composed by Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay. Its first line is “Sujalam Sufalam Shasya Shyamalam” सुजलाम् सुफलाम् मलयजशीतलाम् शस्यश्यामलाम् मातरम्.

We should not forget that India got freedom after a lot of patriots sacrificed their lives for it.  On this day we should take a pledge that every one of us will always try to save the freedom of India.

Long live our Independence. Long live our India.

Jai Hind!
