Anchoring Script for Independence Day - 15 August

Schools and colleges across India celebrate days like Independence Day and Republic Day to remind the student’s the importance of these days. Children or people born after independence generally tend to take freedom for granted. They don’t know how it feels to leave under foreign occupation like the brutal British Raj or East India Company. It makes us (including me) ignore the efforts and sacrifices put by our freedom fighters in liberating our motherland.

A freedom fighter like Shahid Bhagat Singh gave up his life at age of 23. Just imagine what we do at 23, about stupid things at this age but the person devoted his life, sacrificed his family and future and everything else just for one reason, freedom of India. Note: We also have Essay and Speech on independence day, read that, it might help you in writing your script too.

There are a ton of souls like Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Mahatma Gandhi, Lok Manya Tilak, Chandra Shekhar Azad, Lal Bahadur Shastri Sukhdev, Rani Lakshmibai, Jawaharlal Nehru, mangal Pandey, Ashfaqulla Khan, Lala Lajpat Rai, Bipin Chandra Pal, Ram Prasad Bismil and thousands of more if not millions. We got to read about them, we got to understand their madness and persistence to get India its freedom.

If you got a chance to host this year’s Independence Day celebration at your school or college then you should know about these freedom fighters and their sacrifices. Here I am giving your samples script in parts but to deliver a heart-wrenching speech on this Independence Day celebration you got to read about these great souls.

If you really want to make your anchoring stand out you got to add your own emotions into it; not the borrowed ones, your own. To do that you got to know about our history. This can be your last-minute preparation (I get that…) so rather than reading the text I would suggest you just go through with a couple of documentaries over YouTube on Discovery about the Indian freedom struggle. So let’s go and see some typical ways you can start your script for the day. Feel free to use it as a reference but I suggest adding your own emotions, lines, thoughts and related experiences and that’s the way you will stand out.

Anchoring Script for Independence Day – 15th August

Respected principal sir, honourable chief guests, high minded teachers, dear parents and my fellow students. As you all gather here to celebrate Independence Day of our motherland, I welcome you all. This is one of the precious days for every Indian because we got independence on this day that’s 15 August 1947.

I cannot think of any other lines to describe what I am feeling right now. The great Lata Mangeshkar sang this crown jewel for us, every time I hear this song I feel elated and grim at the same time.

ऐ मेरे वतन के लोगों, तुम खूब लगा लो नारा
ये शुभ दिन है हम सबका, लहरा लो तिरंगा प्यारा
पर मत भूलो सीमा पर, वीरों ने है प्राण गवाये
कुछ याद उन्हें भी कर लो, कुछ याद उन्हें भी कर लो
जो लौट के घर न आये, जो लौट के घर न आये
(pause of a couple of seconds)
कुछ याद उन्हें भी कर लो, कुछ याद उन्हें भी कर लो
जो लौट के घर न आये, जो लौट के घर न आये

We celebrate this day each year to remember the sacrifices of our freedom fighters in rescuing our motherland from the clutches of the British Raj. This day also celebrated to showcase the importance of freedom and how much it costs. People who born after independence are likely to take this freedom for granted and the events like Independence Day reminds us how important and necessary freedom is. Independence Day also remind us of our duties and responsibilities towards our nation.

On that note allow me to start this day. I welcome you all here for xth Independence Day of India. We, the XYZ institute/school/college take pride in our national identity, our motherland so we celebrate this day not just for the sake of it but with all heart and soul.

I would like to welcome Mr XYZ our chief guest for the day, principal madam, teachers, parents, staff members, community volunteers, vendors, students and everyone who graced us with their presence in this auditorium. Now I would like to call upon our chief guest and principal madam on the stage for the Dip Prajwalan.

Note: I will suggest you watch Mr Sashi Taroor’s OxfordUnion speech (Britain Does Owe Reparations), you will get a glimpse of what people have gone through in the 200 years of cruel British Raj.

Here you can find ways to deliver a Vote of thanks, Ganesh Vandana, Songs performances, dance performances etc. You can check our other anchoring scripts here.
