Independence means the time when a country or region gains political freedom from outside control. India got independence from British in 1947. This was the act of the parliament of United Kingdom that partitioned British India into independent states. The leaders helping India to be independent were Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Bhagat Singh, Lala Lajpat Rai, Netaji Subhash Chandra Ghosh and many more. These leaders helped India achieve independence. Even today we worship them as freedom fighters of our country.
Our school held an assembly on 11 August to celebrate Independence Day.
We had all kinds of acts and performances. We first had a drama play from the primary school about how eager they were to meet the leaders from the past and they even talked about historical places related to independence. Then there was a small act from the middle school demonstrating different leaders’ dreams on what they wish to aspire after the independence. Then there was a small dancing act too. There was a survey done
by one of the middle school child on “Is India really independent?” The data was shown on “How many people think India is independent” and different answers to various questions. After the data was displayed the senior school brought up a debate related to the independence of India. There was a small question answer game session for audience. After all the acts, we stood up to sing the national anthem.
Freedom to me means walking on the streets alone. Freedom means standing up for what’s right and wrong. Freedom means telling what we feel in public. Freedom means having the right to make our own choices and decisions. Freedom is when we have the right to stand for our voice. As a citizen of India freedom for me is living my life the way I want. And I conclude that I am proud to live in free India.
