We are once again celebrating Independence day. Its India's 63rd Independence Day today, August 15, 2010. Since 1947, every year India celebrates this day to commemorate the end of British rule in India and its Independence. We are truly a proud nation and our pride and glory derives from the sacrifices by our freedom fighters to make us an independent nation today. We tribute them, as we celebrate with great enthusiasm. Jai Hind!

"Long years ago we made a tryst with destiny, and now the time comes when we will redeem our pledge, not wholly or in full measure, but very substantially. At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance.... We end today a period of ill fortune, and India discovers herself again."

- Jawaharlal Nehru
(Speech on Indian Independence Day, 1947)
