Independence Day Speech: for Students in English – 15 August Speech
Independence Day Speech

Independence Day 2023: After being ruled by the British for years, India finally gained its hard-fought Independence on August 15, 1947. “At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom,” Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of Independent India said on the night of August 15, 1947. Later, to commemorate the occasion, the Indian national flag was hoisted above the Lahori Gate of Red Fort in Delhi, a gesture that became regular subsequently. As India celebrates its 76th Independence Day this year, let’s look at the history of this day.


A very warm good morning to the respected teachers and my dear friends gathered here. Today we are gathered here to celebrate this auspicious occasion of Independence day on 15th of August. We celebrate this day with lots of enthusiasm and joy every year because our country got freedom on this day in 1947 from the British rule. We are here to celebrate the nth number of independence day. It is the great and most significant day for all Indians.

People of India had suffered cruel behavior of Britishers for many years. Today we have freedom in almost all fields such as education, sports, transportation, business, etc just because of the years of struggle of our forefathers. Before 1947, people were not so free even they were restricted to have rights on their own body and mind. They were the slave of Britishers and forced to follow all the orders of them.

Today we are free to do anything because of the great Indian leaders who struggled hard for many years to get freedom against British rule.

Independence Day Speech

Independence day is celebrated all over India with much pleasure. This day is of great importance to all Indian citizens as it gives us an opportunity to remember all those freedom fighters who had sacrificed their lives just for giving us a beautiful and peaceful life. Earlier to the independence, people were not allowed to get the education, eat healthy food and live a normal life like us. We should be grateful to those events responsible for the freedom in India. Indians were treated more badly than slaves by the Britishers just to fulfill their meaningless orders.

Some of the great freedom fighters of India are Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Jawahar Lal Nehru, Mahatma Gandhiji,Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Lala Lajpat Ray, Bhagat Singh, Khudi Ram Bose and Chandra Sekhar Azad. They were famous patriots who struggled hard for the freedom of India till the end of their life. We cannot imagine that horrible moment struggled by our forefathers. Now, after many years of independence, our country is on the right track of development.

Today our country is a well established democratic country all over the world. Gandhiji was the great leader who taught us about an effective way of freedom like ahimsa and satyagraha methods. Gandhi dreamed of an independent India with the nonviolence and peace.

India is our mother country and we are its citizens. We should always be ready to save it from the bad people. It is our responsibility to lead our country ahead and make it the best country in the world.

Jai Hind, Jai Bharat.


Good morning to all my respected teachers, parents and dear friends. Today we have gathered here to celebrate this great national event. As we all know that Independence day is an auspicious occasion for all of us. India’s Independence Day is the most important day for all the Indian citizens and has been mentioned forever in the history. It is the day when we got freedom from the British rule after many years of hard struggle by the great freedom fighters of India.

We celebrate Independence Day every year on 15th of August to remember the first day of freedom of India as well as remember all the sacrifices of the great leaders who have sacrificed their lives in getting freedom for India.

India got independence on 15th of August in 1947 from the British rule. After independence, we got our all the fundamental rights in our own Nation, our Motherland. We all should feel proud to be an Indian and admire our fortune that we took birth on the land of an Independent India. History of slave India reveals everything that how our ancestors and forefathers had worked hard and suffered all the brutal behavior of Britishers.

We cannot imagine by sitting here that how hard the independence was for India from the British rule. It took sacrifices of lives of many freedom fighters and several decades of struggle from 1857 to 1947. An Indian soldier (Mangal Pandey) in the British force had first raised his voice against Britishers for the independence of India.

Later several great freedom fighters had struggled and spent their whole life only for getting freedom. We can never forget the sacrifices of the Bhagat Singh, Khudi Ram Bose and Chandra Sekhar Azad who had lost their lives in their early age just for fighting for their country. How can we ignore all the struggles of Netaji and Gandhiji? Gandhiji was a great Indian personality who taught Indians a big lesson of non-violence.

He was the one and only who lead India to get freedom with the help of non-violence. Finally, the result of long years of struggle came in front on 15th of August 1947 when India got freedom.

We are so lucky that our forefathers have given us a land of peace and happiness where we can sleep the whole night without fear and enjoy the whole day in our school or home. Our country is developing very fast in the field of technology, education, sports, finance and various other fields which were almost impossible before freedom. India is one of the countries rich in nuclear power. We are going ahead by actively participating in the sports like Olympics, Commonwealth Games, and Asian games.

We have full rights to chose our government and enjoy the largest democracy in the world. Yes, we are free and have complete freedom, however, we should not understand ourselves free of responsibilities towards our country. As being responsible citizens of the country, we should be always ready to handle any emergency condition in our country.

Jai Hind, Jai Bharat.

Independence day speech in Hindi

गुड मॉर्निंग इंडिया, सम्मानित प्रधान अध्यापक, शिक्षक, मैम, माननीय मुख्य अतिथि, माता-पिता और मेरे प्यारे दोस्तों।

मेरा नाम (आपका नाम) है मैं आप सभी को स्वतंत्रता दिवस की बहुत-बहुत शुभकामनाएं देता हूं।
आज हम 76 वीं स्वतंत्रता का जश्न मना रहे हैं।यह भारतीय लोगों के लिए सबसे महत्वपूर्ण दिन है।

15 अगस्त 1947 को, हमें ब्रिटिश शासन से आजादी मिली।

ब्रिटिश ने 200 से अधिक वर्षों तक भारत पर शासन किया, जिसके दौरान उन्होंने हमें विभाजित किया और हमें नियंत्रित किया।

देश की आजादी के लिए हजारों स्वतंत्रता सेनानियों ने प्राण न्यौछावर किए।

जिनमें से ज़्यादातर आज़ाद भारत की हवा में सांस लेने के लिए नहीं थे।

यह दिन सभी भारतीय लोगों के लिए बहुत महत्वपूर्ण है।

यह स्वतंत्रता सेनानियों जैसे भगत सिंह, राजगुरु, सुखदेव, महात्मा गांधी, जवाहरलाल नेहरू, नेताजी सुभाषचंद्र बोस, वल्लभभाई पटेल, चंद्रशेखर आज़ाद आदि के बलिदान को याद करने का दिन है।

जिन्होंने हमारे देश की स्वतंत्रता के लिए पूरा जीवन समर्पित किया।

आज हम महान भारतीय स्वतंत्रता सेनानियों के कारण कुछ भी करने के लिए स्वतंत्र हैं।

हम उस भयानक क्षण की कल्पना नहीं कर सकते हैं जिसका सामना हमारे पूर्वजों ने किया था।

वे हमेशा हमारी यादों और पूरी जिंदगी के लिए प्रेरणा के स्रोत रहेंगे।

आजादी के कई वर्षों के बाद अब हमारा देश विकास के सही रास्ते पर है।

आजादी के बाद से, हमारे देश ने विज्ञान और प्रौद्योगिकी, खेल, कृषि, विनिर्माण और शिक्षा और कई क्षेत्रों में विकास किया है।

अब भारत सांस्कृतिक और सामाजिक विविधता के लिए जाना जाता है।

इसलिए हमें भारत में पैदा होने पर गर्व महसूस करना चाहिए।

इसलिए इस स्वतंत्रता दिवस पर नागरिकों को कानून का पालन करने, स्वच्छ भारत अभियान का पालन करके, इस महान राष्ट्र के प्रति जिम्मेदारियों और कर्तव्यों के बारे में जानने के द्वारा भारत को गर्व करने का वादा किया गया है।

आइए हम सब मिलकर काम करें और अपने देश को विश्व का महान देश, राष्ट्र बनाएं।

मैं इस स्वतंत्रता दिवस पर सभी से निवेदन करता हूं कि आज आप यह संकल्प लें कि आप खुद को भारत के प्रतिशोधी, संवेदनशील, अनुशासित नागरिक के रूप में सुधारेंगे।

जय भारत, धन्यवाद!

Speech 5 tips for kids

1. Research well

Before writing the speech, get your child to read books on the history of independence of India, not just political but how colonialism shaped the country overall. Get your child to note down the important events, from the Sepoy Mutiny to Satyagraha, for them to be incorporated in the speech.

2. Explain the idea of independence

Just reading the history is not enough. Nidhi Arora, who runs a children’s newspaper The Children’s Post, told Express Parenting that parents need to explain the meaning of independence to children. “I told my son you cannot imagine independence if you have not experienced slavery. You will not know what it is to be self-governed. So, imagine yourself in a place where you don’t make any of the rules. The land belongs to you but you can’t even unfurl your own flag. If you imagine a world not of today but of the one in 1936, you will understand why independence is so important.”

3. Make the speech contemporary

In today’s day and age, children may not be able to relate to the freedom movement and the struggles so much. So, it is always better to encourage your child to talk in the speech about what patriotism and the country means to him or her personally, Nidhi believes.

4. Create a structure for the speech

Once the concept for the speech has been thought out, it is time to create a brief outline, which is, to figure out how to frame the introduction, body and conclusion for the speech. The child can begin by addressing the audience including the principal and the teachers and congratulate them on the 73rd year of independence. The main body of the speech can be focussed on your child’s view of independence by linking it to the actual history, followed by the conclusion upholding the importance of freedom.

5. Add quotes

You can help your child choose some famous quotes by important leaders like Gandhi, poets and writers of the pre-Independence era, as per its relevance to the speech.

If you are not as good at writing speeches as you would like, you can always hire someone professional to help you out. Find the most suitable among the reliable online services, and your “write a speech for me” request will be immediately tended to.
