Trips around Independence Day

Written by Just Wravel

So, what do you all think is the most important thing in one’s life? Without any second thought it is freedom. All of us want our freedom in everything that we do, from going out to choosing something for us. And when we are talking about freedom, how can we forget the most important day related to freedom in Indian’s history which is Independence Day. Independence Day is celebrated every year on 15 August. On 15 August 1947, India got freedom from British rule and this day is celebrated to remember the same. The true meaning of Independence is not to depend on others.
