1. The Story of Indian Independence

Good morning everyone,

Today, we gather to celebrate a very special day in the history of our country, India. It's the day when we gained our independence from British rule, and it's called Independence Day. On this day, we remember the brave men and women who worked together to free our country and make it a land of freedom and unity.

The story of Indian Independence is a remarkable one. It all started with peaceful protests and non-violent movements led by Mahatma Gandhi, who is often called the Father of our Nation. He believed in the power of love, truth, and non-violence. With his leadership and the support of millions of Indians, we showed the world that we could gain our freedom through peaceful means.

Our freedom fighters faced many challenges, but their determination and courage never wavered. They endured hardships, sacrificed their comfort, and some even gave their lives for the cause of independence. Their sacrifice and dedication inspire us to be grateful for the freedom we enjoy today.

On 15th August 1947, our first Prime Minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, raised the Indian flag, the tricolor, for the first time, and India became a sovereign nation. This day is a reminder of the struggles our ancestors went through, the unity they showed, and the dreams they had for our country.

As we celebrate Independence Day, let's remember the values that our leaders taught us - unity, diversity, and the importance of being responsible citizens. Let's promise to work together to make our country even better, to make it a place where everyone has equal opportunities, where there's peace, and where every child's dreams can come true.

So, as we hoist our flag today, let's remember the sacrifices of our freedom fighters, and let's pledge to uphold the spirit of our nation. Happy Independence Day!

Jai Hind!

Thank you.

2. Mahatma Gandhi - Father of the Nation

Good morning/afternoon everyone,

Today, on this special day, we remember and honor a truly great man who played a pivotal role in India's freedom struggle. He is none other than Mahatma Gandhi, also lovingly known as the "Father of the Nation."

Mahatma Gandhi was born on October 2, 1869, in a small town in India. He grew up to become a lawyer, but he did something much more remarkable than just practicing law. He dedicated his life to fighting for India's freedom from British rule, and he did it through peaceful means.

Gandhiji believed in the power of non-violence and truth. He taught us that even in the face of injustice, we can stand strong without resorting to violence. He led several movements like the Salt March and the Quit India Movement, where people joined him in peaceful protests against the British rulers.

He inspired millions with his message of unity, simplicity, and self-reliance. He showed us that one person can make a big difference. He not only fought for India's independence but also worked to unite people, breaking down barriers of caste and religion.

Gandhiji's teachings are as relevant today as they were back then. He showed us that with determination, compassion, and the right values, we can overcome any obstacle. His birthday, October 2nd, is celebrated as Gandhi Jayanti, a day to remember his principles and contributions.

So, as we celebrate this Independence Day on the 15th of August, let's remember Mahatma Gandhi, the man who guided our nation towards freedom and taught us the importance of love, truth, and peace.

Thank you.

4. India's freedom fighters

"Good morning everyone,

Today, as we celebrate our Independence Day, it's essential to remember the brave men and women who dedicated their lives to free our beloved country, India, from the chains of British rule.

Our freedom fighters were like real-life superheroes. They stood up against injustice, faced hardships, and fought with unwavering determination for the dream of a free India.

One of the most iconic freedom fighters was Mahatma Gandhi, who taught us the power of non-violence and peaceful protests. His philosophy of truth, love, and harmony inspired millions.

Then there was Bhagat Singh, a young revolutionary who fearlessly faced the British rulers. His courage and sacrifice showed us that age is just a number when it comes to fighting for what's right.

Sardar Patel, the Iron Man of India, played a crucial role in uniting our diverse nation. His efforts ensured that we became one strong, independent country.

Rani Lakshmi Bai, the brave queen of Jhansi, showed us that women are equally capable of leading and fighting for their land.

These are just a few examples of the incredible men and women who laid the foundation of our free India. They faced immense challenges, but their love for our motherland kept them going.

As we raise our tricolor flag today, let's remember and honor the sacrifices of these great freedom fighters. Let's cherish the freedom they fought for and make our country even better.

5. Speech on India

Hon’ble Chief Guest, Hon’ble Vice President, Respected Principal, Respected Teachers, Respected Staffs of the Administration Department and my Dear Fellow Students,

Like every year, we have gathered here on the 15th of August to celebrate our Independence that we achieved many years ago in 1947. I am greatly honoured to have got the privilege of welcoming you all to this auspicious occasion. While we all are aware how we have achieved our Independence, there are very few who know about our country, the real India.

I have been given this big responsibility to welcome you all and deliver few lines about our great country. India is the seventh largest in terms of area and second most populous country in the world. It is situated in South Asia and was publicly confirmed as Republic of India after its freedom from the British Raj.

India is amongst the prominent countries of the world and every Indian should know about its history, culture, struggle, religious importance and several other important aspects.

Geographically, it is the land of conventions in several ways. It provides all types of climate, from extreme cold to extreme heat throughout the year. The hilly areas in the North and other Northern parts are equally cold as some parts of Europe. South region in India is highly hot and West is extremely humid.

The country is rich in cultural heritage and is a repository of diverse cultures. Indian civilization has stretched over to five thousand years and provides the most exclusive facet in the form of unity in diversity.

India believes in secularism and everyone here is allowed to follow self religious belief. Different religions like Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Jainism, Christianity and Sikhism are practiced here. There are 22 officially recognized languages spoken and various dialects followed here. Diversity can be noticed not just in regard to language, religious belief, racial compositions, etc but also in prototype of living, occupational quest, lifestyles, legacy, inheritance and progression of practices and rituals relevant to birth, marriage, etc.

India has witnessed sharp economic and social differences over past several years, yet the national unity and uprightness have been maintained. It is this blend which has transformed India into an exclusive assortment of cultures.

India has also acclaimed vast recognition in the field of education, music, dance, instruments, arts, drama, theatres, etc. This not only makes India rich in heritage and culture, but also opens up the scope and opportunity for employment and learning. In fact, several foreigners come to India to pursue higher studies or find job opportunities for themselves.

Extremely famous for its historical monuments, caves, mountains and hills, etc, India is considered as a tourist hub too. People from across the world visit India to explore the country and spend their holidays.

While rich culture is the highlight of the country, India is also quite self sufficient in military forces, science and technology. The country is a unique blend of modernity as well as tradition; and it is our duty and responsibility to preserve the culture and beauty of our country and bring fame to it by our deeds.

Thank you

6. Speech on Indian Culture

Hon’ble Chief Guest, Hon’ble Vice President, Respected Principal, Dear Fellow Teachers, Staff Members, Dear Students and Dear Parents,

As you all are aware that we have gathered today for the inauguration of our much-awaited ABC Arts College, I am highly honoured of having this opportunity to deliver the Welcome Speech on this auspicious occasion.

There were many exciting and popular topics such as digitization, globalization, e-governance, etc which I could have considered, but then I thought, there is one important topic which we all are kind of forgetting in our busy lives, i.e., Indian Culture.

Since our college will impart knowledge on Arts, I find this to be the best occasion to deliver a few lines on our Indian Culture.

Culture is a condition of being educated or cultivated. It’s an idea and philosophy of a specific society at a specific time. In fact, Culture is formed out of the ethics and moral values that control a society. While culture is the result of several factors like social, religious beliefs, customs, traditions etc, it is important that we cultivate our culture with rich and positive thoughts.

India has always been considered a culturally rich country in the world because of its unity in diversity. India has several states with diverse food habits, traditions, beliefs, social customs, attire, language, festivals, etc. India is a vast land and all major religions of the world are practiced here such as Hinduism, Jainism, Islam, Sikhism, Christianity, Buddhism and Zoroastrianism.

The exclusive characteristic of our country is secularism and the best part is that every citizen of India lives in harmony and peace by respecting each other’s beliefs and culture. We celebrate every occasion with the same zeal by praying, feasting, visiting the fairs, singing, dancing and by wearing colourful dresses.

Students are the future of our country and we want all our students to imbibe our cultural values and promote harmony and peace in the country. It’s been seen that some anti-social elements are damaging the country’s honour and its rich heritage. We appeal to all of you not to get influenced, instead support the ideals of peaceful co-existence introduced by the legends such as Mahatma Gandhi, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, and Dr. BR Ambedkar.

In our college, we will be celebrating all the festivals like Diwali, ID, Dusshera, Holi, Christmas, Baisakhi, Onam, Guruparv, Pongal, Bihu, etc and we request all our students to participate wholeheartedly in them. The success of all these occasions solely depends upon your enthusiasm and innovative ideas while the college administration would always be there to provide all types of aids and support.

While on one hand, India is known for its cultural richness, it has also earned great fame and a recognizable place in the world of science and now scientific temper has become an inseparable aspect of Indian Culture and Society.

Having said that, I would like to say that it is still easy to create culture but what is difficult is to preserve it. It has taken ages for our forefathers to form such a composite and ethnically rich culture, what is important for us is to preserve it and I am sure, together we can achieve it.

Thank You!

7. Independence day speech

Good morning to all my respected teachers, parents and dear friends. Today we have gathered here to celebrate this great national event. As we all know that Independence day is an auspicious occasion for all of us. India’s Independence Day is the most important day to all the Indian citizens and has been mentioned forever in the history. It is the day when we got freedom from the British rule after many years of hard struggle by the great freedom fighters of India. We celebrate independence day every year on 15th of August to remember the first day of freedom of India as well as remember all the sacrifices of the great leaders who have sacrificed their lives in getting freedom for India.

India got independence on 15th of August in 1947 from the British rule. After independence we got our all the fundamental rights in our own Nation, our Motherland. We all should feel proud to be an Indian and admire our fortune that we took birth on the land of an Independent India. History of slave India reveals everything that how our ancestors and forefathers had worked hard and suffered all the brutal behavior of Britishers. We cannot imagine by sitting here that how hard the independence was for India from the British rule. It took sacrifices of lives of many freedom fighters and several decades of struggle from 1857 to 1947. An Indian soldier (Mangal Pandey) in the British force had first raised his voice against Britishers for the independence of India.

Later several great freedom fighters had struggled and spent their whole life only for getting freedom. We can never forget the sacrifices of the Bhagat Singh, Khudi Ram Bose and Chandra Sekhar Azad who had lost their lives in their early age just for fighting for their country. How can we ignore all the struggles of Netaji and Gandhiji. Gandhiji was a great Indian personalities who taught Indians a big lesson of non-violence. He was the one and only who lead India to get freedom with the help of non-violence. Finally the result of long years of struggle came in front on 15th of August 1947 when India got freedom.

We are so lucky that our forefathers have given us a land of peace and happy where we can sleep whole night without fear and enjoy whole day in our school or home. Our country is developing very fast in the field of technology, education, sports, finance and various other fields which were almost impossible before freedom. India is one of the countries rich in nuclear power. We are going ahead by actively participating in the sports like Olympics, Commonwealth games and Asian games. We have full rights to chose our government and enjoy largest democracy in the world. Yes, we are free and have complete freedom however we should not understand ourselves free of responsibilities towards our country. As being responsible citizens of the country, we should be always ready to handle any emergency condition in our country.

Jai Hind, Jai Bharat.
