Respected Principal, teachers and my dear friends, a wonderful morning to all of you. Today on this special occasion, I would like to speak some words on the topic- Sarojini Naidu.
Born on 13th February, 1879 to a Bengali family in Hyderabad, Sarojini Naidu is often called the Nightingale of India. She was a freedom fighter as well as a poet, making great contributions to both politics and literature.
She held office as the President of the Indian National Congress and the Chief Minister of the United Provinces. She advocated strongly for women’s rights and firmly believed in the freedom struggle of India against the British. She was one of the key figures in the Indian National Movement and inspired a lot of women to participate in it.
So, we must always remember to thank this great lady for the freedom that we enjoy today! Thank you for listening to me so attentively.
