Speech – 1 On Independence day

Good morning everyone,

First and foremost I would like to say thank you to our honourable chief guest to attend our program. I am also thankful to our respected principal sir, all teaching and non-teaching staff to give me a chance to speak a few words on this auspicious occasion.

Today we are celebrating (nth) independence day. It’s a very glad moment for every Indian.

As we all know that our India was under British rule for about 200 years. With the earlier situation and in autocracy system the British people came to India with east India company on 31st December 1600 in Surat and slowly to Kolkata, Bombay, Madras and so on to whole India. The group of merchants with east India company started dealing with Indians. The influence on the land of India by the British gradually increased and Indians were surviving under British rule.

The British people used to rule on Indian people, they compelled us to listen to their orders, started torturing, beating to Indian labours working under them. They used to punish very hard to Indian, even they would not provide one-time food after whole day work. We all be a wonder to know such blood shaking behaviours of British people under the British Raj 1858-1947.

The first Indian, who raised voice against the British rule was Mangal Pandey on the year of 1857. The time was no more for the British people for ruling in India because in the land of India many great Indian and freedom fighters were born. Many of them spent their whole life on struggling, many died for the shake of this nation. They flew their blood like water for free India. In the struggle many mothers lost her son/daughter, many women became a widow. The image of India under British raj is unforgettable for Indians.

The main leaders of India who led the struggle and gave their blood for the shake of this nation, some of them were, Mahatma Gandhi. He is also known as the father of the nation. He established Indian national congress, quit India movement to fight against British people.

In the other hand Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, who was the hero and young role model of India. His most famous quote was “Give me blood, I will give you freedom”.

Chandra Shekhar Azad, Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Lal Bahadur Shastri and many more great Indians were involved who lead the struggle and many had given life for this free India.

Finally, India got independent on 15th August 1947 after the great sacrifices. The day become remarkable and was being celebrated all over India by hoisting the Indian national flag.

We celebrate this festival to remember the great sacrifices of Indians, who gave their blood for the shake of this nation. And we will be celebrating this festival till the sun and moon remain in the sky.

At last, I would like to pray to God may their soul rest in peace, of those great freedom fighters for whom today we can live in this free India.


Thank you.

Speech – 2 On Independence day

At the very beginning a special good morning to all. I heartily welcome everyone to the India celebrating most memorable function independence day on today 15th august. It is the day for joy and celebration for every Indian. So very very good wishes to everyone on this day. I heartily thankful to our teachers, brothers, sisters and my friends to organise such a beautiful function and for giving me a valuable time from this moment to speak some words about independence day.

Since we all are familiar with the history behind celebrating this festival, So without delay let’s remember once again the hard situations, what we Indian faced in eighteen century and how we overcome it. The poor Indians were totally helpless at the beginning. They had no idea about their future when British people recently came to India with the motto of business and the Indians were working under them. As time passed helpless Indians started tolerating the tortures of British people. The conditions of India under British raj and the situations whatever they have passed on that time is unforgettable. Times went and the situations changed.

Indians started refusing to obey their rule, stopped importing things from other countries. It was the time when Indians were rising up their voice against British rule. Many struggles took place. Many of our forefathers sacrificed their lives in the struggle. Mahatma Gandhi, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Chandra Shekhar Azad, Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Lal Bahadur Shastri and many other freedom fighters whole life struggle is the result of today’s free India. We just can’t imagine sitting here, how we got this free India. I salute all those Indian hero’s. The day 15th august is the day when the whole country was celebrating independence day and from then onwards we celebrate this every year with great pomp and show, And we will be celebrating this festival till sun and moon remain in the sky. I would like to pray to God may their soul rest in peace, of those great freedom fighters for whom today we can live in this free India.

Today after many years of independence our country is in the right track of development. We all have responsibility for our country. And we proud to be Indian. We are always ready to save our country from bad people. It is our responsibility to take our country ahead and make it the best country in the world.


Thank you.
