I'm not the kind of person who celebrates independence day. I do not attribute any great significance to it. But it's not very important to me doesn't mean I want to stand out or I am made of a different metal. I just don't celebrate such events. But independence to me signifies the commitment that you make to your countrymen, that whenever your dignity is squashed, you should stand up and protest against it. An independent man should fight, and it is his duty to do that. We should also dedicate the independence day to some of the greats from which we have benefitted.
