    President Ram Nath Kovind addresses nation on Independence Day eve

    President Ram Nath Kovind addressed the nation on the eve of Independence Day. Here are some highlights from his speech. 

    • India's self-reliance means being self-sufficient without alienating or creating distance from the world. 
    • Corona warriors, says they have gone much beyond their call of duty to save lives, ensure essential services.
    • It was a superhuman effort on part of the govt to respond effectively in meeting the challenges due to the COVID pandemic.
    • This year's I-Day celebrations will be restrained as a deadly virus has disrupted all activities, taken a huge toll.
    • Difficult times won't last, don't give up working for your dreams.
    • We have learnt some tough lessons in the year 2020. The invisible virus has demolished the illusion that the human being is the master of nature. I believe, it is still not too late for humanity to correct its course and live in harmony with nature. 
    • Even while the world community needs to fight together against the greatest challenge before humanity, some in our neighbourhood tried to carry out their misadventure of expansion.
    • Our brave soldiers laid down their lives defending our borders. Those worthy sons of Bharat Mata lived and died for national pride. The entire nation salutes the martyrs of Galwan Valley.
    • Celebrations of Independence Day this year will be rather restrained. The world confronts a deadly virus that has disrupted all activities and taken a huge toll. It has altered the world we lived in before pandemic.
    • The nation is indebted to doctors, nurses, and other health workers who have been continuously on the forefront of our fight against this virus. Unfortunately, many of them have lost their lives battling the pandemic. They are our national heroes. 
    • August 15 fills us with the excitement of unfurling the tricolour, taking part in celebrations & listening to patriotic songs. The youth of India should feel special pride of being citizens of a free nation. 
    • We are fortunate that Mahatma Gandhi became the guiding light of our freedom movement. As much a saint as a political leader, he was a phenomenon that could have happened only in India.
