Today is our country’s Independence Day. I am lucky to be born in a free country. Before independence, Pakistan and India were one country, ruled by the British. We were considered second class citizens in our own country and were denied many privileges of free people.

The date, 14th August 1947 was written in blood of people of both countries. There was a lot of needless bloodshed and for many years people could not forget the agony of those days.

The cost of independence was high but now we can live as free people. Freedom is something that is valued above almost everything in life.

I would like to share a few photos of how we celebrate our Independence Day

This anthem has been sung by many of our famous singers as a tribute to Pakistan.

  1. Thanks for the peek at your Independence Day. Obtaining freedom is not without a price. I never thought about it before, but both your country and mine gained independence from Britain. Now Britain is one of America’s biggest allies. Things can certainly change over time, hmm? What a lovely post! ❤

    1. Thanks a lot Melanie. Yes, that thought had crossed my mind that we had a common oppressor. We aren’t allies of British but we are not enemies either.
