Today, India marks the 75 years of Independence. The country gained freedom from British colonial rule on August 15, 1947. As we gear up to celebrate the 76th Independence Day, it is crucial to remember the importance of this day, the history of our nation, and the sacrifices our freedom fighters made to gain freedom from the clutches of the British Empire.
On this day, the country’s citizens hoist flags while singing the national anthem and cultural parades take place all over the country. The Prime Minister also hoists the national flag and gives a speech at the Red Fort. It is a tradition started by the first prime minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru, who raised the national flag above the Lahori Gate of Red Fort in Delhi in 1947.
