‘Rejoicement on the eventful day of the end of British Imperialism’.
“Patriotism”, stands for the feeling of immense pride and respect towards your own country. This term cannot be distinguished much from the term ‘Nationalism’ which implies an identical feeling of devotion towards your motherland. The Indians are well recognized in the world for immortal patriotism. Our nation truly understands what it feels to taste freedom and liberty, after being ruthlessly subjugated and exploited under the dominance of the British rule. However, against all possible adverse circumstances, 15th August, 1947, marked the end of the tyrannical British atrocities.
