Five years election system was started. Dr. Rajendra Prasad became the first president and Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru became the first prime minister of free India. People are united with one common thought – patriotism.
During the first days of independence around midnight on 14 August 1947 Jawaharlal Nehru gave the popular tryst with destiny speech “At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom .” Today, the Prime minister hoists the Indian flag at the Red fort in Delhi, twenty-one gun shots are fired in honour of the occasion. Generally India receives terrorist threats on this day especially Delhi and some other big cities like Mumbai. People fly kites in many places throughout the country. The main setbacks for British in India were – first the revolt of 1857, the Civil Disobedience Movement, Quit India movement .
But as we know that even after 68 years of independence, we still have to achieve freedom from corruption, poverty, incapability in or minds and social stigma’s prevailing in our society. We demand more transparency in the system. Jai Bharat!
