Write a short paragraph on Independence Day.
We celebrate Independence day on 15th of August, as on this day in 1947 our country became free from the British rule. Since then every year on 15th August we have a flag hoisting ceremony in all the offices and schools. A lot of cultural programs are held and sweets are distributed to children. It is celebrated with a lot of pomp and show. It is a red letter day in the history of India.
