Respected CEO, Manager and Supervisors, Dear Colleagues and all other Friends!

Today is the day when we had received our Independence from the British and our nation became the Independent country in 1947. Like every year, we have gathered here to celebrate the Independence Day and pay tribute to all those great people who have sacrificed and are still sacrificing their lives for guarding and securing the Independence.

I am highly honoured to get an opportunity to deliver a speech on Patriotism. This topic is very sensitive for me because I love my nation, my country very much. We all know how much difficulties and hardships, freedom fighters have faced in order to make India free. The feeling and sensitivity of Patriotism is vital for the Freedom of any Country. A patriotic person is one who is always prepared to sacrifice his/her life for the need and love of his/her country.

Patriotism is one of the best qualities one can have. It is a pious feeling of the mind. Thankfully, we live in the Independent country unlike our great freedom fighters, who had to win it after a lot of struggle and sacrifice. Now, we really don’t have to struggle every day to survive as much as they did.

So, remembering all those great people who have fought for our Independence, we are filled with feelings patriotism. Great people like Mahatma Gandhi, Shahid Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev, Subhash Chandra Bose, Lala Lajpat Rai, Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel and many more saints struggled hard till their last breath, only for the reason that they wanted to see their countrymen live a life in harmony. It is only because of their noble cause that the world still remembers them. However, there are several anti-social elements in our society, who try to spoil the image of our country.

Now-a-days, we see in news, etc that some section of young students from some universities speak against their country. Such people don’t respect the hardships of the Freedom fighters and our Armed forces who protect us every second.

Patriotism can be fulfilled through various other means. Not necessarily, everyone needs to be a freedom fighter or should be serving the Army, Navy or the Air Force. You can exhibit your love towards the nation by being a part of Clean India popularly known as ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan’ or you can help poor, old or needy people, save water, save environment, etc. You may join non-government-organisations (NGOs) and help the needy people. In winters by distributing blankets or in summers by distributing water, you may display your love towards the mankind and thus show your true heroism and patriotism. Patriotism does not only mean to struggle for the freedom of one’s country, it also includes the honest feeling and true love for the country and countrymen which can be displayed through passionate work for the country’s development.

Love your country and show it in your actions.

Thank you!
