Speech on Indian Air Force Day

Speech on Indian Air Force Day

Good Morning Principal Sir, Vice Principal Sir, Sahu Sir, Our Respected Teachers And My School Mates.

Today, we all are gathered here to celebrate the significance of the Indian Air Force Day which falls on 8th of October.

 Indian Armed force is the pride of our nation. It’s their effort that our country is safe every day. Armed forces soldiers are ready to protect the country every day by sacrificing their lives. The Air Force is also an integral part of the Indian Armed Forces. Enemies do not attack the country from the sky, that’s why this army does an important job of air surveillance.

India’s Air Force is considered to be the fourth largest air force in the world, which has more than 1,70,000 soldiers and more than 13 hundred fighter aircraft. Today, women are also employed in the Indian Air Force.

 The Indian Air Force was officially established on 8 October 1932 by the British Empire. It assumed the status of an auxiliary force of the British Empire which assisted in fighting on land along with the army. The aviation service of India was awarded the name ‘Royal’ during the efforts made by him during the Second World War. The Royal Indian Air Force was also named after India gained independence from the United Kingdom. Since our government received its own constitution and became a republic in 1950, the prefix Royal was dropped three years later.

 It is a matter of great pride that the Indian Air Force has been involved in four wars with Pakistan and one with the People’s Republic of China after independence. The operations carried out by it are Operation Meghdoot, Operation Vijay – Invasion of Goa, Operation Cactus and Operation Pumalai. It is also involved in the United Nations Peacekeeping Mission. The President of the country is serving in the Indian Air Force as the Commander-in-Chief. Hence, Now an Odia women Droupadi Murmu is leading the Indian defence, so the Air Force.


The motto of the Indian Air Force is ‘Nabhah Sprush Deeptam’ which means “touch the sky”. It has been taken from the 11th chapter of the Bhagavad Gita. During the war of Mahabharata in Kurukshetra, Lord Krishna has given this sermon to Arjuna. The Air Force flag is different, it is blue in colour with the national flag in the initial quarter and a circle made of all the three colours of the national flag in the middle. This flag was adopted in 1951.

Indian Air Force has a staff of 1 lakh 27 thousand 200. There are 814 combat aircraft. India has 9 types of operational missiles. These include Agni-3. The country’s first indigenous helicopter manufactured by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited has joined the military fleet. The Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) is also engaged in preparing a consignment of indigenous lethal weapons which are going to become the strength of the army to provide a befitting reply to the enemy in the future.


In view of their tremendous service to the mark, Indian Air Force Day is dedicated to all those young men who are committed to the defence of the country with the care of their lives. Till now, the Indian Air Force has made a significant contribution in all the wars in history for the security of our country.


Apart from this, we are celebrating Indian Air Force Day at The Aditya Birla Public School Bhubaneswar, to gain inspiration from these heroes and to raise awareness about the Air Force of India. This day is also important for the purpose of trying to strengthen national security and authority. Every year Indian Air Force Day is an important occasion to pay tribute to the Air Force personnel who died in the war. The sacrifice and courage of the brave soldiers are remembered on this day. Everyone feels proud on this day by remembering the dedication they had for the country by putting their lives at stake.

Thank you.

Jai Hind!!!

Voice Modulation Tips:

Try to use every opportunity to speak; practice and experience will give you the confidence and power, and you will gradually be able to correct and improve your voice for modulation. On every occasion whenever you speak or deliver lecture, you should bear in mind the following points:

  1. Always convey your message with the variation in the pitch and tempo. Never deliver your speech in a monotone as it will not only bore but also send your audience to sleep.
  2. Speak at a rate so that your audience can understand you because fast delivery betrays a lack of confidence.
  3. Speak normally at about 125 to 150 words per minute. Check your speed and try to bring it within this range.
  4. Pronounce words properly, putting stresses at the right syllables.
  5. Speak loud enough so that everyone in the audience can hear you clearly.
  6. Pause for a moment in between sentences to control your speed and approach better.
  7. Refrain from vocalised pauses and nasalisation such as ‘er’, ‘ah’, ‘unh’, ‘umm’, etc.
  8. Take care that you do not repeatedly use such phrases as ‘you see’, ‘I mean’, ‘What I meant,’ ‘Understand, ‘Have you understood,’ ‘Clear?’, ‘Is it clear?’, ‘Was it clear?’, etc.
  9. Remember that a lazy lip movement breeds unintelligibility, a stiff jaw stifles the voice and an inactive tongue strangles it. So, always try to maintain a balance while speaking or delivering your lecture.

Happy Practising
