Independence Day Memories

Author: Jiggyasa

This year, we have celebrated the 70th Independence Day of our great nation. On this auspicious day 68 years ago, India attained freedom from colonial rule and the people of our country became the masters of their destiny. Since then, we celebrated this day with great joy and enthusiasm. However, with passing time, this spirit has begun to dampen.

As we have become busy with your work lives, 15th August is merely seen as another day of holiday. Some people may have planned a vacation trip, while other busy-bees may have lined up some pending work to finish on this day. But some might want to sleep through the whole day! Well, not denying the fact that the feeling of independence and respect for 15th August will always persist in our heart, but the enthusiasm to celebrate this day may have taken a backseat somewhere down the line.

Todayโ€™s comic strip comes with a little motto of reminding us how enthusiastic we used to be in our school days. In our schools, the Independence Day was marked by a day full of cultural activities, patriotism, sports events, principalโ€™s long but enthusiastic speech and last but not the least… the yummy sweets distributed to all!
