(Tomorrow, it is the Independence Day of our country. Ritesh is making a National Flag. His younger sister Shubhi enters the room.)

Shubhi : Brother, what are you busy doing?

Ritesh : Tomorrow, it is 15th August, our Independence Day, and I am making a National Flag.

Shubhi: Should I help you in making it?

Ritesh : Oh, yes, why not! Please come. We will make it together. Do you know Shubhi, what do the three colours in the flag stand for?

Shubhi :  I don’t know brother. Can you tell me?

Ritesh: Saffron stands for sacrifice, white for peace and green for prosperity.

Shubhi : There is a blue wheel in the white stripe. What does it stand for?

Ritesh: It is the Ashoka Chakra in the centre of the white stripe having 24  spokes. This represents the 24 precious hours of the day

Shubhi : What will you do with the flag tomorrow?

Ritesh : We are going to have a parade in the school. The National Flag will be hoisted and we will sing the National Anthem.

Shubhi : What else will be done on this day?

Ritesh : On this day we salute the heroic deeds of our freedom fighters. Gandhiji, Sardar Patel. Subhash Chandra Bose, Bhagat Singh and many others fought for many years to make India a free country.

Shubhi : Ritesh, are you taking part in any of the programmes?

Ritesh : Yes, I will deliver a speech

Shubhi : What are you going to say in your speech?

Ritesh ; I have written not only about the importance of Independence Day but also about our duties towards our nation.

Shubhi : What are our duties towards the nation?

Ritesh : To do good for the society.

Shubhi : How can we do that?

Ritesh : By helping others, maintaining cleanliness. planting trees, respecting elders and so on.

Shubhi : It means every one must do one’s bit to improve one’s surroundings.

Ritesh:   Yes Shubhi, if we all do a little, it will help our country.

Shubhi : Brother, tomorrow I will give my old toys and clothes to the poor children.

Ritesh : Very good Shubhi, this is also one of the ways to serve our country.
