Sample Answer

My country has been through a lot of tough and great times and our calendars are marked with many important dates that correspond to many important events that India has witnessed. Possibly the most important date is 15 August 1947 and signifies a very important feeling of patriotism for each and every Indian. It was on this day that India got independence from the then 200-year-old British rule after innumerable sacrifices.

Furthermore, it was not a result any one person in particular. Thousands of important and influential people from villages, towns, and cities all over India had come together holding hands and raising their voice in unison against the oppressive British rule during the time. It was their efforts and the encouraging support of the common public that had led India to achieve its freedom.

My grandparents have told me various stories from the time and I have always been awestruck while listening to them and getting to know of the struggles and hardships of the people back then.

This day is celebrated by each Indian and inspires us to make our country proud and help it stand out on the world map. Indians embrace this day not only to celebrate the country’s freedom but also to pay homage and tribute to the sacrifices of all the freedom fighters who gave up their lives for the country’s sake. This day teaches us to envision a better India with each passing day of our lives and motivates every Indian to work towards it as a common goal.
