What Does Independence Mean to You?

Team StoryWeavers|August 26, 2022, 02:28 IST| 120

All countries look forward to celebrating their independence day every year with great fervour. For our country, it’s no different. Ever since we got our freedom on August 15, 1947, India has come a long way to becoming an inspiring nation, not just for its citizens but also for the world.ย 

At BYJU’S, we understand that independence may mean different things to different people. For our co-founder and your favourite teacher, Divya Gokulnath, independence means a multitude of things – be it carving her own path or inspiring curiosity or empowering others to live their biggest dream every day!

On the auspicious occasion of India’s Independence Day, tell us โ€“ What does independence mean to you?ย

Freedom means right to choose your dreams, right to live for your success. You are enjoying your freedom in true sense, when you have made your own fame and world knows you by your name, not by one’s sibling, one’s wife, one’s child or anything else. Freedom means living the live in own way. Having freedom in true sense will give you real satisfaction

INDEPENDENCE – As the word comes into my subconsiouness it means free from the influence of others. But becoming free is not all about for me ! For me – being free from others influence, others clutches not being anyone’s labour is what is known as Freedom.
After being freedom, when we utilise the freedom not only for our own happiness but when our freedom will also give happiness to rest of the people then it is known as INDEPENDENCE [ as per me ].

Though our beloved motherland-India had become independent 75 years ago itself. I feel that the people of the country are still caged especially the youth, for they are having unimaginable stress due to various reasons some of which include- as a result the competition among the students for a secure future, most of the students are forced to take stress. Talking about the working citizens of the country, they are forced to work several hours without having enough time to spend some quality time with their family, which is also stress taking. At the end I feel that though the country is physically free and is independent, it has not yet gained freedom mentally throughout.

Hey there! Greetings! I’m Avni Laghate from class 8.
Independence according to me is full freedom. When we are doing something from our heart and we are 110% sure about it, no one has the right to stop us from doing that. Whether the thing we are doing is right or wrong, that’s a question which will get resolved once we get the result of that thing. Who knows the thing which you are doing can one day change the world! We are the next future leaders. If we don’t have the independence to use our creativity into something that can help to make the future better, we our seriously ‘Good For Nothing!’ I am really glad, that my dear ones and my teachers always support my decisions and let me do different activities and tasks! I really Hope every creative learner like me, gets the independence to create something amazing!!
THANKYOU BYJUS!

Independence day means we got freedom from British on 15 August 1947. Independence means we have not control on other people we can work in our country with our own. Now we have right to education, right to free health care facilities and free of using salts water etc. They are our basic rights.

For me Independence is a special word. As a son of an officer in B.S.F I want to say that independence is a feel of doing everything that we want 75 years back our country was a slave. But our freedom fighters fought and make us live independently. So, I want to say that independence is a term that shows or makes us understand the feel of living free in peace.

Happy 75th Independence Day ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ

Anshu

August 15, 2022

For me, the true independence come to our country when:
1-The government schools are modernised.
2-The poor are able to go for treatment in the same hospital where rich people go.
3-Our farmers get as much respect as any minister of high post.
4-There is unity among all Indians.
5-When children respect to every parents.
And obviously freedom does not mean only for humans, it also means for animals and plants. so when all animals are happy and more and more plants are grown then the true independence would come.

Independence means freedom


SAMEERAJ

August 15, 2022

Independence means a complete freedom from expectation of any person or situation in my life. I lived a lot of my life expecting various things from others, often feeling โ€˜wrongedโ€™, despite the fact I was a horrible communicator and couldnโ€™t express my needs! I guess I expected people to read my mind. I have learned to Love All People, Freely with no expectations. If you rely on any person, title, amount of money or another personโ€™s opinion or approval of you for your own security and happiness, it is a false comfort! People & Things add amazing value to life! However, if you rely on anything, any person outside of your self, true independence and happiness will elude you. Itโ€™s only found inside each of us! Others will no doubt spark the fire that allow you to discover this, but they Are Not the Source! Once you find it, you will be able to enjoy the best life has to offer! It requires brutal self honesty, forgiveness, immense gratitude and Self Love, and Accepting yourself as you are.
