Independence Day is celebrated on 15th August. This festival is celebrated all over the country. We were ruled for more than 150 years. We celebrate this day with lots of joy and happiness.

We celebrate this festival because we got independence on 15th August 1947. More than 150 years back Britishers came to India for trade because India was the richest country. It had fertile land, precious stones,spices and cotton. Slowly Britishers started ruling so Indians started revolting   back in 1857. People like Gandhiji, Subhash Chandra Bose, Sarojini Naidu etc fought for India’s freedom. Gandhiji followed nonviolence while Subhash Chandra Bose followed violence and formed an army. Subhash Chandra Bose stated, ” you give me blood, I will give you freedom”. These people fought bravely.

All these brave people fought for our freedom. Because of them we are free to do whatever we want. I am proud of them and I salute them.
