Celebrating Our Independence

Dear all
15th august is an auspicious day for all Indians. For over 200 years India was ruled by the Britishers. On this day as we all know that India got freedom. The whole year we talk of patriotism, love and concern for India. But this day we have a reason to feel the zeal and pride for our country. And feel lucky to have freedom fighters like Bhagat Singh, Raja Ram Mohan Roy etc who sacrificed their lives, their priorities for their country.

At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance ... We end today a period of ill fortune, and India discovers herself again ...... Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru
These are not mere words of Nehru ... It is an entire nation roaring, declaring and therefore celebrating its hard-earned Independence. It was a proud moment then (We wonder if we really lived up to their expectations) !

To celebrate this spirit of sacrifice and the feel of the love for country our school today celebrated Independence Day paying tribute to the nation its glory and 64 years of independence.
