India's history is replete with invaders from foreign lands who came to plunder its riches. As India gears up to celebrate its 67th anniversary of Independence Day

Given the long journey the country undertook and the challenges it overcame, one should say the achievements are remarkable. The political freedom we achieved in 1947 was not a gift from the imperial British. It was the culmination of decades-old struggle led by revolutionaries like Mahatma Gandhi, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Jawaharlal Nehru and Sardar Vallabhai Patel. Our country thus owes its independence to these true sons of our mother-land.

Although, various schools, colleges and communities celebrate the Independence Day by singing patriotic songs and enacting dramas on freedom struggle, but the real celebration of this can be made only when each and every individual of this society rise above self-interests and walks on the path of honesty and instill moral values in them. Besides India, Korea, Congo and Liechtenstein also celebrate their Independence Day on August 15 every year.
