A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I will be giving a short speech on the topic of ‘Freedom Struggle’.
Freedom, more often than not, is earned through struggle and pain and ought to be cherished, it’s worth never being forgotten.
This rings true for our own country, India. India gained her freedom on the 15th of August, 1947. It was no easy task. It took years and years of struggle, tears, and pain under the tyranny of British rule. It took the courage, sweat, and blood of hundreds and thousands of patriotic citizens who fought against the oppression valiantly and did not fear to even give up their lives for the cause of the greater good.
It took resistance on all ends, slowly building up to become a massive revolution enough to drive out the British. It is the freedom struggle of these brave Indians who have made it possible for us to enjoy the liberty and freedom that we have today- to study, voice our opinions, and live independently.
What freedom struggle has taught us all is the value of perseverance. Despite facing hurdles and losses, the freedom fighters did not back down until they achieved success. This shows the importance of being perseverant in life.
What it also shows is how one must never be silent and accept unfair discrimination and ostracisation thrown one’s way no matter what the cost is. As we all once got our freedom by struggling, justice will always be served only if we struggle and raise our voices against oppression, either by peace or by aggression as the situation calls for it.
Understanding the importance and value of the freedom that we have today, let us all be grateful and proud, and vow to make India proud of her children one day, her head held high!
