On August 15, 1947, our country gained independence and broke free from two centuries of British rule. We achieved the independence we have today through the blood and sweat of our freedom fighters. Every year on August 15, India celebrates Independence Day with great pomp and grandeur.
Amidst the glimmering skyline of Dubai, a sentiment echoes that resonate with hearts around the world: the ability to celebrate and express unwavering love for one’s nation, no matter the distance. As actress Jyoti Saxena finds herself in the bustling city for an upcoming project on the 77th Independence Day, her words carry a timeless truth that binds individuals to their homeland regardless of borders.
Jyoti Saxena expressed her thoughts on celebrating Independence Day away from India saying, “I am for the first time ever in my life is celebrating Independence Day away from my homeland. I am here for my work trip but being in Dubai on this special day doesn’t mean I’m any less connected to my roots. The love and respect I hold for my country have no boundaries. As an artist and an Indian, I must celebrate the essence of freedom and show my gratitude to the countless souls who fought for our independence.”
She further expressed “Being away from my country, only brings back memories of my school days. We used to celebrate Independence Day by participating in many school functions like dance, singing competitions, skits, and many more activities. We got to know about the interesting stories of our freedom fighters, which we always remember and carry in our hearts forever.”
She further emphasized, “Patriotism knows no borders. No matter where you are, you can always celebrate and express your love for your nation. As we all know the tricolor on our national flag represents the unity, diversity, and indomitable spirit of India, and I am proud to hold it high, even in a foreign land. Wishing you all a very Happy Independence Day, Bharat Mata Ki Jai”
Jyoti Saxena’s admirable act touched her admirers and followers greatly, and they were grateful to her for preserving the spirit of patriotism despite the distance. Her 77th Independence Day celebration in Dubai delivers a strong message that love for one’s country is a feeling that transcends space and time.
Jyoti Saxena’s words serve as a reminder that even though we are distant from home, our sense of patriotism remains strong. Instead, it sparks a special bond that is made stronger by the distance between us.
We wish you all a very Happy Independence Day!
