As we take this process further, by facilitating credit for women-run enterprises and start-ups or by easier availability of LPG in millions of kitchens and millions of homes, we live up to the principles of our freedom struggle. This is not a word of a single man. As such, we have an opportunity to raise the quality of life for those of our fellow citizens who have unfortunately remained at the bottom of the pyramid. It will allow them to observe and participate in social welfare programmes and see how they are making an impact. It is a collaboration of public agencies and community groups, with selfless citizens who are keen to share, to empathise and to give back. You could begin with mentioning how an unknown Sepoy in the British Army called Mangal Pandey triggered a rebellion that soon spread to other parts of the country that was later referred to as the Great Mutiny of Swami Vivekanada gave us spiritual power.
Let us try and abide by it.
You may wonder if what I have said so far would not have held true in the years gone by, maybe 10 or 20 years ago or even earlier. To some extent, it certainly would. Even so, we are at a juncture in our history that is very different from any period we have so far experienced. We are at the cusp of achieving many of our long-awaited goals. Universal access to electricity, the elimination of open defecation, the elimination of homelessness, the very elimination of extreme poverty is achievable and attainable.
We are at a pivotalmoment. Let contentious issues and extraneous debates not distract us. Afterfour years, we will be marking the 75 th anniversary of Independence. In less than 30 years, our people will celebrate the th anniversary of India as a free nation.
The decisions we take today, the foundations we lay today, the projects we undertake today, the social and economic investments we make today - whether for the immediate future or for the medium term - will determinewhere we stand. The pace of changeanddevelopment in our country is rapid and appreciable. And as per our civilisational traditions, it is driven by our people, by civil society and by a partnership between citizen and government.
Its focus, again in keeping with the essence of Indian thought, is on a better life for the less fortunate.
I will give you just one example. The Gram Swaraj Abhiyan is taking seven flagship programmes to the very doorstep of the poorest and the most deprived among our fellow citizens. These services include access to electricity, access to the formal banking system, access to welfare and insurance programmes,and access to immunisation in hitherto hard-to-reach areas.
The Gram Swaraj Abhiyan has been extended to Aspirational Districts where, seven decades after Independence, we still have stark gaps in the development narrative.
Not surprisingly there is a significant overlap between the populations of these districts and historically weaker communities, such as Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes. As such, we have an opportunity to raise the quality of life for those of our fellow citizens who have unfortunately remained at the bottom of the pyramid.
The Gram Swaraj Abhiyan is not being carried out by government alone. It is a collaboration of public agencies and community groups, with selfless citizens who are keen to share, to empathise and to give back.
Independence Day is always special, but this year there is anunusual significance attached to it. In a few weeks, on 2 nd October, we will begin the commemoration of the th birthday of Mahatma Gandhi. Gandhiji did not just lead our freedom struggle.
He was and still is our moral compass. In my capacity as the President of India, I have been fortunate to have travelled around the world, particularly toa fewcountries of Africa. Everywhere, across continents, Gandhiji is mentioned, cherished and remembered as an icon for all humanity. He is the embodiment of India. It is not always simple to understand Gandhiji.
He refused to be restricted in his definition of politics and political activism, or even of freedom.
When Gandhiji and his wife Kasturba, travelled to Champaran in Bihar for the indigo farmers' agitation, they devoted a considerable part of their time to educating local people, particularly women and children, as well as teaching them about hygiene and health.
Here, and on other occasions, Gandhiji personally led the drive for swachhta or cleanliness. He linked the removal of dirt to an act of self-discipline and of promoting physical and mental health.
Many were puzzled at that time. What does all this have to do with freedom? For Gandhiji, they were the centre-piece of the quest for freedom. This was a struggle, according to him, not just for political power but for empowering the poorest of the poor, educating the uneducated, ensuring the right to a dignified life and a feasible livelihood for every village, for every neighbourhood, for every family - and for every individual.
Gandhiji spoke of swadeshi with an uncommon zeal. To him this was a pride in promoting Indian creativity and an Indian sensibility. Nevertheless, he was alive to intellectual currents from the rest of the world. He invited these to enrich our learning.
To him, Indian civilisation was defined by open windows and not closed doors. This was his concept of swadeshi and it is still relevant to us as we engage with the world - whether for our economy, our health, education and social aspirations, or our policy choices. Perhaps Gandhiji's most noble mantra was to point out that the power of ahinsa is far greater than the power of hinsa.
The power to stay your hand is far greater than the power to strike with your hand and hinsa has no place in the society. The weapon of ahinsa was the most effective weapon Gandhiji gave us. Like his other teachings, it was rooted in the ancient wisdom of India and yet has a resonance in the 21 st century and in our daily lives. This Independence Day, so close to the th anniversary commemoration of Gandhiji, let each of us adapt his ideas and maxims, in whatever manner we can in our everyday work and conduct.
I can think of no better way to celebrate our freedom. I can think of no better way to celebrate Indianness.
And this Indianness is not for us alone. It is part of what our country and our civilisation bring to the global stage. In the spirit of Gandhiji and the spirit of India, we believe in the age-old ideal of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam or the "World is one Family". This is why we demonstrate our concern for entire humanity by providing assistance to many African countries, taking initiatives on the issue of climate change, contributing to United Nations Peacekeeping Operations in different parts of the world, helping neighbouring countries affected by natural disasters, rescuing people from other countries along with our own people, trapped in a conflict zone.
In the spirit of Gandhiji and the spirit of India, we share the practice of yoga for health and well-being, and using technology for development. We are Gandhiji's children.
We dream for all humanity, even when we walk alone. In my engagements with students and university authorities all over India, I have urged students to spend a few days - maybe four or five days in a year - in a village. Undertaken as part of what may be termed "University Social Responsibility", this will help students understand our country.
It will allow them to observe and participate in social welfare programmes and see how they are making an impact. It will be of benefit to the individual student and to the village, as well as to the country. It will also invoke the fervour of our freedom struggle, and the identification of every citizen with the national mission.
I am gratified by the idealism and the passion of our young people. There is a spirit to achieve something for oneself, for one's family, for wider society and for our country.
This is the most moral education we can wish for. The outcome of education is not merely a degree or a diploma, but the commitment to help improve the life of another in a way that is sustainable.
This is empathy and fraternity in action. This is the Indian spirit. This is India, because India belongs to the people of India - not just to the Government.
Once you have prepared the sub-headlines, you need to start writing the content under each sub-heading based on the time you plan to allocate on each. Follow this with defining why you are all gathered here today and what is the relevance of 15th August to the nation. The priority and focus of a nation being born in was different then, as India today prepares its priorities and focus based on current situation.
You could begin with mentioning how an unknown Sepoy in the British Army called Mangal Pandey triggered a rebellion that soon spread to other parts of the country that was later referred to as the Great Mutiny of You may choose to mention others from a long list of stalwarts. Remember, you must mention each event briefly and also explain the impact that event had on people at the time. Here, you might like to highlight some of the other lesser known names. You need to research and read up further details on the events mentioned above, so you understand the context and then you can decide which events you can mention and in how much detail.
Remember to touch upon these briefly. This is very important while writing and preparing to rehearse your speech. When you complete writing the first draft, read it aloud in the tone and speed that you will actually speak on the day and see if it completes within the time that you have set.
If your speech exceeds the time limit, you need to edit it. Likewise, if your speech is finishing early, you need to add more content. This famous speech was been recorded in Indian history as one of the greatest speeches.
Famous words from the Father of the Nation. These words still reverberate all over the world for its simplicity and introspection.
Unless we change first, it is pointless to seek change in others. An important lesson for all of us. This was part of his famous speech when he called upon people to join the INA. These words reverberate when we recall the inspirational moments when the nation responded to the call of leaders to join the freedom struggle. This was the inspirational call for all freedom fighters and made famous in his famous literary work — Anandamath.
This is our national song, which is different from our national anthem — Jana Gana Mana. These famous words were part of his stirring speech when he called upon young Americans to join in making America great. Related Information:
