India got independence from foreign rule on 15th August 1947 becoming a sovereign nation and then onwards this day is celebrated as Independence Day to commemorate the sacrifices given by the great leaders and freedom fighters who struggled hard to obtain freedom from the British Empire.
The event ‘Prabhat Pheri’ was organized by NSS on the occasion of 69th Independence Day of India. The motive of this event was to inspire a patriotic feeling among the students of IIT Roorkee and to summon memories in our mind of the sacrifices made by our great ancestors.
In the morning of that
auspicious day, all the cells of NSS came together at Mandi Cell, at about 6 AM.
Everyone seemed to be in an enthusiastic and energetic mood even though it was
quite early in the morning. Soon, all of them assembled to form three lines.
The rally proceeded towards Jawahar Bhawan in an orderly but lively manner.
Many students had held posters and signs depicting a message to everybody on
the theme of Independence Day. The rally then moved towards LBS Ground. They
were singing patriotic songs together in chorus wholeheartedly. Proceeding to
the boys hostel complex, the rally halted to spread awareness among their
friends in their bhawans by vigorously shouting patriotic slogans like
“Inquilab Zindabad”, “Vande Mataram” and “Jai Hind, Jai Bharat”. Some people
even joined the rally till the end after seeing the spirit of their friends and
colleagues. The voice of the people kept on increasing as they moved on the
road towards MGCL. The bystanders also looked towards them in admiration as
they approached the end of their rally back at the Mandi Cell. After the
singing of the National Anthem, the crowd was dispersed.
