Whenever I think of the glorious battle of those great martyrs against the British to free our mother land from the bondage of foreign rule, I often feel a query in mind that if they could ever visualize or got the slightest indication of the highest degree of corruption and dirty politics prevailing at present in every walk of life in free India, did they come forward to sacrifice their valuable lives for the sake of their beloved mother land which was really a mother to them? The very next moment I come to sense that those great heroes in the true sense of the word had only one goal in life and that was to free the mother land from the bondage of British rule, they had nothing to achieve for personal gain, all they desired to achieve was the independence of their beloved mother land, even at the cost of their own lives. So nothing could prevent those great real heroes with undaunted spirit to choose the glorious death of a martyr. They succeeded in achieving their one and only goal in life. Now it is up to the leaders of our country to decide how they would lead the country. But as any other Indian, I must hope that the present leaders should often try to think of the glorious struggle and sacrifice of those great martyrs with undaunted spirit who remained unmoved till their last breath and did not hesitate to welcome death cheerfully. If the present leaders care to give value to the patriotism of the martyrs, it would not only be a boon for the nation but also make their immortal souls happy in heaven. Let’s mourn for those great martyrs once again on the auspicious day of 15 th August, our ‘Independence Day’.

Yes, salute to those martyrs who laid their life for achieving the freedom. Our gratefulness to these stalwarts should always continue. I am proud of being born in the same country and I boast about it to everyone. Unfortunately, I am afraid that many people are now misusing the freedom which was got by the martyrs shedding their blood and life. Corruption is swallowing all the goodness done by them and I am afraid it may lead to lots and lots of negative consequences. God save my country. Wish we have a strong and great leader to come and lead us. Jai jawan jai kisan. Jai Hind.

It is a great pity that the modern generation is not well aware of the sacrifices of those great sons of India. They are not be blame for it as the culture is now such that they are only advised to make a career. Most of the guardians now a days never ask their children to go through the great and glorious freedom movement of the motherland, most of them do not know who was the first martyr of our freedom movement. I think to become a good citizen, one has to be a patriot and to become a patriot, one needs to go through the history of the country.

Even If we do not go to the extent of remembering those martyrs, we can at least try to be faithful to our country and countrymen and do not indulge in corruption, or immoral activities. Even that should be enough to make India a great country. However, the change should come from within us.

Its true those people gave us something for which we can not repay them any way.But now our country is just at the last stage of cancer of corruption and it is really seeming difficult to have it cured from this.You may have seen the movement that are started to uproot the corruption is sometimes hailed by these corrupts and eventually this fails.The situation is grim but still we have hope that one day when the young minds will decide that we want a corruption free country and they will start being anti corrupt and promise not to be involved in corruption will make this country corruption free and this will take much time.I pay my tribute to those great freedom fighters from bottom of my heart and thank them for giving us the power to decide the fate of this country.Happy independence day.

It is true that we can not repay them in any way but we can try to fulfill their dream of an independent India where there would be no poverty, illiteracy, racism or provincialism, rather, there would be communal harmony, fellow-feeling, respect for each other. Let's try it from now.

So many of the countries in the world today are in serious trouble. I think we can wrap it up in one word greed. To much this and to much that, to many people, to little concern for each other, all these things have been growing and growing for many years. The more we have, the more we want. Well I can see that all of this is going to come crashing down we use up our oil, but worse than that we dirty our water and we use it carelessly. As usual the poor will feel this first, then the middle class and the last to feel this will be the rich. Whether this takes year, months or weeks, it's coming and I don't see any way to stop it.

Well, if things continue as they are, this would indeed be unstoppable. We must search our souls and find answers within us. Else, it would be too late for the mankind.

thanks for the great tribute to our leaders. i also feel like you and wish our present leaders would stop filling their pockets and do something for the country. It is indeed a shame that our country cannot spend on athletes otherwise we would have athletes who made us proud this independence day.

All our present leaders are now busy in catching fishes in troubled waters of the existing political turmoil in the country.

Unfortunately, those martyrs are remembered just for the sake of "remembering". While their photographs may be adorned with garlands, not even 2% of their principles and selfless attitude is followed. No one is willing to look beyond own means. What is more shameful is that most of the people today- be it a politician or an ordinary citizen are even willing to make others' lives miserable to achieve their ends. Where did the brotherhood, selflessness, zeal to sacrifice go?
