Independence Day is symbolical of all the sacrifices our freedom fighters made for the country’s future. In the last 72 years of Independence, India has made progress in every field, be it education or its military and space programmes.

On August 15, 1947, Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India, raised the Indian national flag at the Red Fort in Delhi. Every Independence Day, flag hoisting ceremonies take place and cultural programmes are held in governmental and non-governmental institutions all over the country.

August 15 serves as a great reminder of the sacrifices made by innumerable freedom fighters. And if you want to celebrate the patriotic national holiday by sharing heartfelt wishes, videos, songs and messages, we’ve got plenty for you right here. Here are some famous freedom quotes that you can share with friends and family this Independence Day.

We should salute the sacrifices made by our freedom fighters and soldiers who made the dream of independent India a reality.

7. Some birds are not meant to be caged, that’s all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place where you live is that much more drab and empty for their departure. ~Stephen King
