This year also the independence day was celebrated in my town. Early in the morning there were processions. People sang in that calm atmosphere of the dawn such songs as were reminiscent of the brave deeds of Pakistani heroes. People were in their cheerful moods. Then at 7 am. The national flag was hoisted at the University Grounds. People came to witness this ceremony. The flag was unfurled by our local dignitary who is the Health Minister in the Punjab Government. After hoisting the flag the visiting dignitary gave a powerful speech in which he described the progress of Pakistani planning during the last forty eight years. His speech was to point and inspiring. He also paid glowing tributes to the Pakistani martyrs. He encouraged the people for undergoing further hardships in order to preserve the freedom of the country. Last of all the National Anthem was played. The people then dispersed. Independence Day celebrations are of great importance. On this day flags flutter on all Government offices. At night illuminations are also made.
