Every year the 15th of August is celebrated as Independence day in India. On 15th August 1947, India got freedom after a long struggle with the British government under the leadership of great freedom fighters. Common people also took part in the freedom struggle. This day reminds us of all the sacrifices and suffering that the freedom fighters had to undergo for winning freedom. Thus the 15th of August is a historic day for the Indians and that's why it became our national festival.

The 15th of August is the final result of continued struggles. A number of great freedom fighters like Lala Lajpat Rai, Subhash Chandra Bose, Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, Rajguru, Chandra Shekher Azad sacrificed their life to fill in a sense of patriotism into the hearts of the Indian people. In the words of Bhagat Singh, "Bombs and pistols do not make a revolution. The sword of revolution is sharpened on the whetting stone of ideas." Mahatama Gandhi started non-violent non-cooperation and quit India movement against the British rule in India. The whole country was in the revolution against the British rulers. Thus we got freedom on this day.

This day is celebrated with great joy and pride every year as Independence Day. The national flag is hoisted on all the government and private buildings of the country. At the Red Fort, Prime Minister of India unfurls the national flag and due respect is shown to the flag by way of military and mass salute.

15th August 1947 is a memorable day for the Indians. In the words of Subhash Chandra Bose, it brings for us a message that "One individual may die for an idea, but that idea will, after his death, incarnate itself in a thousand lives."

Dear Sir,

I traveled to Pune from New Delhi on the flight(Flight Number) on April 28, 2019. My luggage was misplaced because of the carelessness of your airline staff. Your airline’s staff assured me that my luggage will be delivered to my address within 24 hours.

First of all, I did not expect irresponsible behavior from a reputed airline brand like yours. It has been 3 days now and your airline has no information about my lost luggage. There are many important things in my luggage that were required during my stay in Pune. I have faced so many problems due to your unprofessional airline.

I want compensation from you for the inconvenience caused to me. I hope you will soon locate my luggage and sent back it to my address. 

I would appreciate an early reply from you.

Thanks,
