As independent India turns 72 on August 15, 2018, every corner of the country will shine in tricolour, great leaders saying and patriotic songs. On August 15, 1947, after a long drawn struggle, our nation managed to free itself from the British rule. India's freedom struggle was a hard-fought one. For us, it is a day to pledge and protect the unity and integrity of our county. Apart from gatherings in the popular spots, schools and colleges conduct functions annually where children participate in cultural performances. They enthusiastically deliver the patriotic speech, a timely reminder of the struggle and many lives that were sacrificed in the pursuit to put an end of 200-year-old British regime. Since the students are gearing up already, here are some video of speeches to help them present the words in schools confidently on this Independence Day. Quotes and Patriotic Sayings by Freedom Fighters to Evoke Pride for India on 15th August.
