Every year we celebrate Independence day on 15 August to commemorate the struggle and sacrifice of our Freedom fighters and Leaders. It was because of their constant efforts that we got our independence on 15 August 1947 from British rule. Children are the ones who are most excited about this day as they celebrate this day in schools with great eagerness. You can make some extra efforts and make this Independence day special for your little cousin, brother, sister, neighbour or your own child.
