Independence Day Speech for School Students

Vande Mataram!

Distinguished Chief Guest, Honorable Principal (or Head Master / Head Mistress), esteemed teachers and my dear friends

First of all I sincerely thank our Principal sir / madam and teachers for giving me this wonderful opportunity to speak a few words on this auspicious day. Well, you all know that we have completed 71 glorious years of free India and this year (2018) we are celebrating our 72nd year of Independence. Before I start my speech, let us pay our tributes to the great freedom fighters for their struggle in the freedom movement. Friends, let us not forget their sacrifices in achieving freedom for our country. August 15, 1947 is a day which is not only remembered by every Indian but also it is the day that brings patriotic spirit in every Indian.

As we have been studying / are studying the freedom movement in our history lessons, I don't think it is necessary for me to remind you of this great movement. We are the future citizens of the country and it is our moral responsibility to take our Motherland ahead on the roads of development. As per the words of our beloved ex-President Late Dr.A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, let's have a vision of developed India and let us all dream for a developed India. Of course, dreaming of a developed India is not just sufficient but we. as the future citizens, should strive to fulfill the same.

We need to be aware of our civic and social responsibilities. Let's try to be law abiding citizens instead of taking pride in law-breaking citizens. Making our country a developed one is not the sole responsibility of any one citizen or one organization or the govt but it is a collective responsibility of all the citizens including the organizations and the govt. When we develop such a team spirit and work together with cooperation, we are sure to achieve success and could surely make our India a developed one in the coming years.

Dear friends, don't think that our patriotism lies only in celebrating our National festivals, unfurling our National Tricolor Flag, singing our National Anthem Jana Gana Mana, delivering speeches and then dispersing from the assembly. But we need to show our true patriotism towards our country by being good law abiding citizens and thus help the govt in functioning properly / smoothly instead of making it difficult to work.

One more thing, I would like to mention on this occasion. As we are proud of our rich cultural heritage, let's strive to be worthy of it and let's not make our Motherland bow down her face in shame due to our activities. We all are living in a cultured society and let us have freedom from gender discrimination. Let the fairer sex of our country is fully empowered and enjoy the freedom of its thoughts.

A healthy living is a happy living and for a healthy living, cleanliness plays a key role. Friends, let us all collectively work towards 'Swach Bharat'. Do we need to carry brooms in our hands and sweep the roads or our school premises as a part of Swach Bharat? No, obviously not. Keeping our surroundings, our classrooms, our school premises clean, is what we need to do. Make the wise use of the trash bins and drop the wastes in the bins only instead of throwing these here and there. Let's strive for a cleaner and healthier India.

At this juncture, I would like to give few concluding words to my today's speech. We, as the future citizens of our nation, let us all try to live together with a cordial and harmonious relationship. We should remember the fact that we are one country and we need to work together with a team spirit. We cannot make our country a developed one unless and until we join hands and work together.

Maa Tujhe Salam! Jai Hind!

Editor's note: This speech is updated for accuracy and comprehensiveness.

Traditional Telugu Wedding

"Dharmecha, ardhecha, kamecha, nati charitavyeti, data vadet, nati charatavya - Nati Charami"
"Mangalyam tantunanena mama jeevana hetuna, kanthe badhnami subhage tvam jeeva sarada satam"


These are the two most important chanting in Indian Hindu weddings.

Wedding (Vivah / Vivaham in Sanskrit), is a highly sacred event in Hindu culture. It is a life long commitment between a man and a woman. Vivaham is one of the 16 samskaras. Brahmacharya (youth) of a man ends with marriage and his Grihastasramam (family life) begins.

Hindu weddings involve various ceremonial / procedural events which are almost similar in all regions with slight variations. The events take place in the form of prayers, invocations and vows that are recited in Sanskrit. The prayers are power-packed with in-depth meaning and describe the strong bondage between husband and wife who are united in the presence of Panch Bhoota i.e the five elements of Earth, in a ritualistic manner.
