Independence day is very close to my heart. It is indeed sad to see people taking Independence day as another holiday. Children should be taught more about the Indian freedom struggle, what their ancestors and the freedom fighters have done for them and why freedom means so much to all Indians. We also need to think whether we are doing justice to what they have attained for us.We should all be responsible citizens and instill the responsibility of duty towards our country in the generations to come.
As each of you aspires to a better future for yourself, similarily aspire high for the values of our nation and the society that you live in.This is your life.This is your country and if you want to keep it safe you need to get involved. Even if we are engrossed with our professional and personal lives for the rest of the year, on this specific day, each citizen of the country does spend some time pondering on his or her contribution to the country.
