    Essay on Independence Day
    Independence Day in India is the most important day for every Indian citizen as our country hot freedom from British rule. We celebrate this day every year on 15th of August from 1947 .Our country is counted as the world’s largest democracy all over the world.India become an independence country on 15th of August in 1947 after sacrifices of thousands of freedom fighters who worked hard to get independence from the British.
    Each and every Indian celebrate his/her freedom in their own way such as decorating their place of celebrating raising National flag , March past , watching favourite movie , dance etc independence day is celebrated by the government of India every year when the current Prime Minister of India raises out tricolour national at the Red Fort in Delhi followed by the Indian army parade , speech and other cultural activities. Independence Day in India is celebrated with the national flag salute by the 21 guns firing . Similarly independence day celebration takes place in every state of the country where governor and the chief Minister of the states become main guest . Some people get prepared in the early morning and wait for the speech of the Indian Prime Minister at T.V. On 15th of August people get inspired with the history of India’s independence and do some social activities like that and watch movies based On the patriotic themes .
    The great non-violence movement of the Mahayana Gandhi , bapu , help a lot to our freedom fighters to get freedom from the British rule after 200 long year of struggle. The hard struggle for independence of India has worked as a huge moving force for every Indian which bind them together at one place whether they belong to different castes, classes , cultures to ritual beliefs to fight them from British rule for their right . Even women came out from their houses and played their great role in getting freedom.
    At last l want to say that – As Indians our duty towards the mother country is to work for the development of Indian . We should take an oath today of being highly responsible and well -educated citizens of the tomorrow India. We should sincerely perform our duty and do works and do work hard to get the goal and successfully lead this Democratic nation.

    1. Essay on the most unforgettable event of the Indian freedom movement

      India got freedom on 15th August, 1947 from the British Empire after the long struggle of over 100 years. Lots of freedom fighters sacrifice their life to make us free and work hard to protect this freedom. It was not an easy task to get freedom from the British rule but the struggle of our Indian freedom fighters makes it possible all the ways. Many freedom movements and policies were conducted against the British Empire and finally India got long awaited freedom on 15th August, 1947. Many Indian freedom movements and campaigning were started by our freedom fights to bring the Indian people together and fought against the Britishers and their unfair policies. Some of the greatest movements of that time are The Indian Mutiny of 1857 or Revolt of 1857, Quit India Movement, Salt Satayagraha or Dandi March, Civil Disobedience Movement, Non-Cooperation Movement, Jallianwala Bagh massacre, Khilafat Movement, Swadeshi movement and boycott movement and lots more movements are conducted by our freedom fighters and as a result of these movements Britishers finally raised their hands and set India free after the rule of over 100 years. All these Indian freedom struggle movements had their own importance and impact but the most unforgettable event of the Indian freedom movement for me is the Swadeshi movement launched on August 07, 1905 at the Calcutta Town Hall, in Bengal after the orders of partition of Bengal by the Viceroy of India and continued up to 1911. Boycott movement was also launched along with the Swadeshi movement to boycott of government service, courts, schools and colleges and of foreign goods. The movements were started to encourage people using goods produced in Indian and burning British-made goods. Bal GangadharTilak encouraged Swadeshi and boycott movement after the British government decided the partition of Bengal. Lala Lajpat Rai, Aurobindo Ghosh, VO Chidambaram Pillai and Babu Genu were some the great fighters who flourished this movement and make it successful throughout the India. In 1909, the movement had spread across the country and people had started anti-partition and anti-colonial movements. In Andhra Pradesh, the Swadeshi movement was also known as Vandemataram movement. Later the movements started by Mahatma Gandhi such as Satayagraha movement, Non-Cooperation movement, etc. all were based on Swadeshi movement. It was both a political and economic movement which not only affect the Britishers extently but it direct effect on their economy. The Swadeshi Movement, now known as “Make in India” campaign is the one of the movement which still need to be adopted by all of us to make our Indian economy stronger. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had launched “Make in India” campaign on 25 September, 2014 to encourage multi-national, as well as national companies to manufacture their products in India so that India can become stronger financially as well as increase the job opportunities and skill enhancement in many sectors of the economy. And it’s our collective duty to make this campaign successful across India.
