Remembering our freedom fighters

1759

Independence Day is a day for us to celebrate with the hoisting of our national flag, recitation of our national anthem, singing patriotic songs and organizing social and cultural programmes.
On this day, we must also remember the sacrifices made by our various freedom fighters who bravely fought for our country’s independence and pay our due respect to them. But it’s a pity that after every Independence Day celebrations, the country’s national flag is strewn on the streets and people irrespective of caste, creed, colour or religion blithely walk over them.
Even when the national anthem is played on the radio or telecast on television, people don’t respect it. They are busy talking to their friends on their mobile phones or chatting with people around them.
