2. Barack Obama’s speech in 2004
Mr. Barack Hussein Obama II, who was totally unheard of before his keynote speech at the Democratic National Convention, received exuberant cheers while he spoke on stage on 2004. His all-embracing speech was meticulously premised on national unity and hopefulness about a brighter America. He showed downright humility and a sense of intimacy in his speech. Not using statistical data and devising the usage of relatable personal stories and deep intimacy, helped him commence his journey as the President of The United States of America.”There is not a liberal America and a conservative America, there is The United States of America”. The US crowd whistled and applauded and the world watched its wide-reaching implications.
3. Margaret Thatcher’s speech that made her The “Iron Lady”
Great Britain’s first women Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher, was a women with a subtle voice and powerful disposition. Despite criticized of being stupidly obstinate, she could profoundly persuade her listeners and connected with them through emotions and anecdotes rather than facts and dates. It was evident from her speech on 19 January 1976 titled “Britain Awake” that she wanted to fortify Britain against the threat of any attack from Soviet Russia and instill a feeling of courage in the minds of the people of Great Britain. The title of the “Iron Lady” that she received subsequently, was argued to depict her “harsh” political regime and her strong defense strategies. By by the time she left office, the Berlin Wall had dissolved, freedom and democracy gained ground and it marked the end to the Cold War.
4. Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream”
5. Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s “Give me blood, I will give you freedom”
In one of the most fiery speeches in Indian history, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose infused a new sense of enthusiasm in Indians when he addressed a rally of Indians in Burma, July 4, 1944. Due to internal conflicts, strength of the Freedom Movement in East India had shriveled. He conveyed that India’s struggle for independence wouldn’t come to an end until Indians are willing to shed blood and this speech inspired and electrified the youth in general. He was elected the leader of the movement thereafter. No one can afford to miss this speech of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose!
