On 15 August 2018, India will complete 71 years of its Independence. This day indubitably reminds us of all the sacrifices, bloodbath and slavery that this country saw for years. The freedom fighters broke the chains of slavery and freed us from the suffering under the British rule. After we attained freedom on August 15 in1947, our first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru hoisted the national flag from the Red Fort in Delhi. Since then, August 15 is observed as a national holiday with flag-hoisting ceremonies, parades, and cultural events.

In the digital era, the greetings and wishes for the day are now sent via social media and messaging apps. So, here are some Independence Day messages and quotes you can send out to your friends and family.
