Independence Day Speech In English by Student (1500 word long speech)

Good morning everyone,

My respected teachers and dear friends,


On the tantalizing morning of this wonderful day, with patriotic fervor and pride, on the 15th August, each Indian fills his heart with immense respect and love for his motherland. Being the sons of India, each year on this day, one unfolds the hues of saffron, pure white, and pine green with salutes and tribute. Past back it was on this day of 1947, that Indian independence along with its government came into being. On this very day, the Indian Independence act was finally declared in this Nation. Unrolling the Indian Tricolour in the nation‘s capital, our leaders made beautiful memories with vibrant radiating love for the nation.

The independence that is freedom is that of a state in which its inhabitants or population or some portion thereof, excise self-government and sovereignty over the society. It is the sort of self-determination that focuses on exercising its power over the population, definite territory, self-ruling government, and trying to be self-reliant. In short, it will be a self-sufficient state with affairs that will be settled by themselves and without any interference.

Reminiscence of this pious day, India declares itself to be independent in all respects and got freed from the shackles of British imperialism. A struggle of about 200 years, with submission, begging for mercy, and hope – a hope to live each day like a free bird, hope to win through all the battles, and finally, a hope to visualize the dawn of a rising sun in the nation has led India to learn how to fight back for every situation which comes across to stop her. If you try to estimate the strength of India and its woman, you get to see that it equalizes living with the pain of dipping a tea bag in a cup of hot tea.


The history of India and its independence is an epic in the freedom fight and a challenge to destiny. With the beginning of a new era, each year India tries to unfold itself with vibrant hues of pomp, progress, and perseverance. ping deep into the reels of India’s history, we get to see how our freedom fighters and the sons of India fought for winning the battle and envisioned rising India to be an independent nation. Their invaluable sacrifices led us to live today in a civilised state with each night sleeping comfortably on our bed. It is an inspiration to all our youth to have the courage and religiously celebrate the pride of being born in this country. The echoes of the patriotic songs make the ambiance of this day remold India a unique identity.

With the unfurling of the tricolour, Bharat Mata is secured from the clutches of the East India Company and the British rule and what remains is our unity – ultimate strength with persity. Being a nation with different cultures and inspired by the footprints of great men, like Babu and Netaji, India seems to rule and understand every situation it thinks to handle itself with appropriate methods of being an extremist or an assertive one. The elixir of equality and justice, which our leaders have spread across the country, seems to be the biggest phenomenon that India could ever face.


As the youth of the nation, it is our prime responsibility to sacrifice ourselves in contributing to our mother India. On this very day, we should pay a heartfelt tribute to the millions of martyrs of mother India. The brave souls and the valiant soldiers, armed forces, and our police, as well as our security forces who have engaged their life in contributing to and safeguarding our mother nation, should be rewarded for their rigorous reparations.

Securing its full autonomy from the colonialists, this day captures Immense significance in the core of the Indian citizens living in any corner of this world. Holding it to be a national holiday, this day seems to have an ambiance of hoisting the national flag at all institutions as well as in our homes, the exhibition of the various art forms representing the tricolor, arrangement of various cultural programs as a tribute along with the synchronizing memories of the partition of India.

Past back on 15 August 1947, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, our former prime minister of India, unfurled the tri-colored flag in New Delhi, the capital of India, at the Lahori Gate located in the Red Fort. Not only our freedom fighters but also our father of the nation that is Bapu Ji had fasted in Calcutta and was living a life of a perfect saint with the promotion of khadi and devoted his time to prayers and revolting against hatred.

Once upon a time, India was termed to be Spiceland, the place to be famous for its spices and masalas. With abundant resources and minerals, India was once termed to be the most attractive country in the world. When the British arrived and present India in their shackles, they began to misuse all the resources and started to collect all these valuable materials back to their country. Not only did they manipulate the rules but also started to force ownership on India and its policies. They work according to their whims and fancies and started implementing the pide and rule policy which shattered India into two parts.


Parades are organized each year to pay tribute to all freedom fighters and to Armed Forces who each day protect us and secure us from antagonists. Therefore, it is on the 15th of August each year when we remember that being the citizens of India it is our prime responsibility to uphold the virtues of a nation, stand for a nation, be for the nation, and be of the nation. The youth who are the pillars to uphold the virtues of tolerance, love, and peace should have a fellow feeling amongst the people and should have a warmblood to fight for our country. Each one of us should be inspired to look for the Swadeshi outfits and cater to the fraternity and freedom of speech that our country has given the right. The fundamental rights of India and its directive principles have always inspired us to be proud to be Indian.

Freedom is the most loving aspect of this era. It is something which we pine for. On this Auspicious day of Independence, we all the sons of mother India fight to win because we don’t have runner-ups on the battlefield. Let’s salute the martyrs who have let her flag flow high in the saffron and prosperous green hues.

“If your blood doesn’t rage then it is water flowing in your veins. For what is the flush of youth, if it is not of service to the motherland”- Chandra Shekhar Azad.


At last, I would like to end my speech with a note of gratefulness and a bunch of thank you. Gifting our country with the resplendent morning and paving the path for its independence and some who became the epitome of simplicity, humility, and wisdom, I pay tribute to all the noble personalities on this religious day. Not forgetting the khadi man of India who once brought in the satyagraha with some others who brought in the seraphic ideologies of Swaraj of the masses has led this day to be the most memorable one in each year. Be their footprints keep on guiding us in creating an incredible and prosperous India ahead and each day blooming in it to make a better place to live in.
