Independence Day 2021 history  quotes and its importance.

Independence Day 2021: On the night of August 15, 1947, Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of Independent India, declared, “At the stroke of midnight, while the world sleeps, India shall awake to life and independence.” These lines eloquently expressed the struggle and joy of newly independent India when it eventually succeeded to break away from British control.

Jawaharlal Nehru raised the Indian national flag over the Lahori Gate of the Red Fort in Delhi to commemorate the momentous day. This became a symbolic gesture, and it still happens every year on August 15th, India’s Independence Day. The day is marked with flag-hoisting rituals, exercises, cultural activities, and the singing of the Indian National Anthem around the country. This year marks the 75th anniversary of the country’s independence.

Significance

 

Independence Day is noteworthy because it honours the bravery and spirit of the freedom warriors who battled for the nation’s independence from British domination.

 

Every year, Prime Ministers hoist the flag and address the nation from the Red Fort, recognising the day as one of national pride and honour. The president makes a televised ‘Address to the Nation’ a day before Independence Day.
