History of the Independence Day
The British kept us under their control for almost two centuries. And because of these tyrants, the nation’s citizens suffered greatly. Until we are able to fight back against British officials, they will treat us like slaves.
Under the direction of our leaders Jawahar Lal Nehru, Subhash Chandra Bose, Mahatma Gandhi, Chandra Shekhar Azad, and Bhagat Singh and many more freedom fighters, we fought valiantly and heroically for our independence. Some of these leaders opt for violence, while others go the peaceful route. However, the ultimate goal of these was to expel the British from the nation. And the long-awaited wish came true on August 15, 1947.
Why Do We Celebrate Independence Day?
We commemorate Independence Day to relive the occasion and to appreciate the spirit of freedom and independence. Remembering the sacrifices and lives we have sacrificed during this conflict is another justification. In addition, we observed it as a reminder that we had to work hard for our independence.
Aside from that, the holiday stirs up our inner nationalist. The younger generation is aware of the challenges of those who lived during that period along with the celebration.

Despite being a national holiday, the people of the nation take tremendous pleasure in celebrating it. On this day, numerous little and large events are held in schools, offices, societies, and colleges.
