Essay on my homage to freedom fighters

MY HOMAGE TO THE FREEDOM FIGHTERS 

Freedom fighters are those figueres, who have fought our combined enemy towards the service of our nation. They have fought the enemies who had taken control over India during the British invasion in the 1700s. Each fighter protested either peacefully or physically. Countless names of the brave like Bhagat Singh, Tantia Tope, Nana Sahib, Subhash Chandra Bose and endless others who fought for the Independence of India.  Mahatma Gandhi, Jawhar Lal Nehru, B.R. Ambedkar and other cabinet members laid the foundation of a free and democratic India. The journey and the struggle for freedom was long and hard. M.K. Gandhi, who is addressed as the father of our nation, put in his efforts to abolish untouchability, end poverty and Swaraj (self rule) which put British under pressure and  scrutiny under global eyes. Rani Laxmibai fought the first freedom struggle of India in 1857. Unfortunately, she died by the hands of British but she became a symbolic figure for women empowerment and patriotism. Such courageous symbols became an inspiration for the future generation leaders. These are the names of people recorded in history but there are endless unnamed martyrs who died serving the nation. 

Homage means to honour and show deep respect to someone publicly.  A day has been given to honour such courageous people who lost their lives towards serving their nation which is “Martyr's Day”. It is observed on 30th January of every year which  is celebrated for the brave martyrs who have laid down their lives for the nation. This day is chosen as Martyr’s day as on this day, Nathuram Godse assassinated Mahatma Gandhi. We observe a minute silence on that day to pay our condolences to the freedom fighters who laid their lives for the nation. Endless statues have been erected in the country and roads, towns, stadiums, airports and other places are named after monumental figures to honour their service for the nation. All of these gestures will remain less against their input for the country. They shed their blood, sweat and tears to a selfless service, so we could see a better tomorrow. 

On Independence day, kites are flown all over India. We all come together as Indians on that day. I light diyas for the peace of freedom fighters. Till this day, our defence forces lose lives at the borders while protecting the nation. It is every citizen’s duty to serve its nation in any way they can, whether it be by protecting it or working for it.I promise to respect the choices of our ancestors and freedom fighters, whose endless struggle has given us a free land to live, to work, to eat in. India has and always will shelter me and I shall die at its service. That will be my biggest honour.
