Independence Day 2023 speech ideas for students: India will celebrate its 77th Independence Day on the 15th of August, commemorating 76 years of cherished freedom. This day marks the liberty of our nation from foreign invaders. Although we are successfully governing our country and moving towards becoming a developed nation from a developing one but attaining this was not as easy as it looks.
Independence Day falls on August 15 annually. The day is marked with much pomp across the country as the Prime Minister hoists the flag at Delhi’s Red Fort and addresses the nation. The whole country gets submerged in patriotic feelings and enthusiasm as people celebrate Independence Day by organising events, flying kites, wearing tricolour clothes, and more. Schools and colleges also celebrate the day by holding events where students give speeches, prepare dance performances, participate in fancy dress competitions inspired by freedom fighters and more.
