India would be celebrating the 68th Independence Day on 15th August 2014. Celebrating Independence Day is not complete without wishing the fellow citizens “Happy Independence Day”. Earlier these messages and greetings were sent to friends and family by post as greeting cards. But with change in technology SMSes took the place of greeting cards, and now people are more comfortable wishing their friends and family on WhatsApp groups and updating their Facebook Status and posts. Not sure if this is out of patriotism or is just an irritating way of showing off our patriotism on Independence Day without understanding the real meaning of it.

On 15th of August 1947 the plan put forward by the last viceroy of British India, Lord Mountbatten known as Mountbatten plan was accepted by both the Congress and the Muslim league. Immediately, the enactment of India’s independent Act (1947) ended the British rule and India became an independent and sovereign state. Since then the Independence Day is celebrated throughout India on 15th August every year as a national holiday to honour the birth of world’s biggest democracy.

Independence Day holds a significant place in every Indian citizen’s lives and people from every corner of India irrespective of their colour, creed, caste or religion celebrate this day with complete zeal and vigour. This day is also celebrated to commemorate and to pay homage to all the martyrs who sacrificed their lives for India’s struggle for freedom. As India will celebrate its 68th Independence Day we bring to you some of the selected SMSes, WhatsApp, and FaceBook text messages that you can send across to your compatriots, via various messaging platforms available.

Here is the list of our top 10 Best Patriotic SMSes, WhatsApp & Facebook Messages for Indian Independence Day 2014.

During my blogging experience, I have heard from so many Indian friends who have poetry in their hearts.  There is also room there,  for devotion to freedom. Today is a day to wed the two.  May we all learn from their inspiring  devotion to democracy for all !

1) Freedom has its life in the hearts,
The actions, the spirit of men
and so it must be daily earned and refreshed
else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots,
it will wither and die.
Happy Independence Day

2) Freedom in the mind,
Faith in the words,
Pride in our Souls,
Let’s salute the Nation on 68th Independence Day!

3) Let every patriot be honoured,
Don’t let politics get in the way.
Without them, freedom would have died,
What they did, we can’t repay.
Happy Independence Day

4) Others might have forgotten
But never can I,
The flag of my country
Furls very high
Happy Independence Day

5) Thousands laid down their lives,
So that our country breathe this day,
Never forget their sacrifice.
Happy Independence Day

6) Let us celebrate & enjoy the freedom
to live independently in our country
cheerfully, helpfully, hopefully, peacefully
by remembering our national heroes
who gave us freedom
after suffering years of pain & humiliation.
Happy Independence Day

7) And I’m proud to be a Indian,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

8) We must be free not because
we claim freedom,
but because we practice it.
Happy Independence Day

9) Let’s take decision,
To value our nation,
Shall not forget those sacrifices
Who gave us the freedom..
Now it’s our turn
to have a reformation
Happy Independence Day

10) Our life is full of Colours
I hope this 15th August will
add more colours to your life
Happy Independence Day.

Hope we Indians will celebrate this year’s Independence Day by not just sending the SMSes, WhatsApp Messages, and updating Facebook status just to show off their patriotism, but try to understand the real meaning of patriotism and be proud to be Indians and have true respects for freedom fighters who sacrificed their lives to give us this valuable freedom and opportunity to live in the largest democracy on Earth.

    Hey Sanjeet, Of course you are correct that India has a long and proud history. My thought was that this is the birthday of a free, united India as the world’s largest democracy. I think we agree and it is just a matter of semantics. Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting. Anne
