One of the common activities performed during Independence Day celebrations is the recitation of National Pledge in a fixed specific manner.

The National Pledge is recited in a loud voice in unison by standing straight and stretching right hand forward.

Many Indian schools include national pledge as a part of daily morning assemblies and essentially also included in the observance ceremonies for Independence Day and Republic Day.

Pledge

India is my country.
All Indians are my brothers and sisters.
I love my country.
I am proud of its rich and varied heritage.
I shall always strive to be worthy of it.

I shall give my parents, teachers and all elders, respect, and treat everyone with courtesy.
To my country and my people, I pledge my devotion.
In their well being and prosperity alone, lies my happiness.
