On that day, we remember those heroic souls of the soil at the cost of whose blood victory has been achieved. It is the day of great pride and jubilation. On this day I feel for the martyrs who sacrificed their lives in the war. Their strength and sacrifice inspire me. The Pakistani occupation forces killed thousands of innocent people, tortured innumerable women, killed many intellectuals of the country. After nine months of fighting we have achieved the golden sun of independence from the barbarous Pakistanis. The sacrifice made by the martyrs will act as a perennial source of inspiration for me to work for the country. The symbolic meaning of the day is that we have won victory over our enemies, the Pakistani rulers. The people of Bangladesh proved the fact, that freedom is the birth right of man.
