Independence Day (India)

15 August 2020 –

“Freedom is not worth having if it does not connote freedom to err.”
Mahatma Gandhi

The Independence Day of India, which is celebrated religiously throughout the Country on the 15th of August every year, holds tremendous ground in the list of national days, since it reminds every Indian about the dawn of a new beginning, the beginning of an era of deliverance from the clutches of British colonialism of more than 200 years. It was on 15th August 1947 that India was declared independent from British colonialism, and the reins of control were handed over to the leaders of the Country. India’s gaining of independence was a tryst with destiny, as the struggle for freedom was a long and tiresome one, witnessing the sacrifices of many freedom fighters, who laid down their lives on the line.
On this day, India witnesses a huge celebration of independence with tricolor flag hoisting, parades and cultural functions across the country. Independence Day is one of the most significant days in the Indian history that remarks the bravery of our freedom fighters. With buildings illuminated by the tricolor, people pay homage to our leaders and great fighters who fought and gave up their lives for India’s freedom “Our Freedom”. Laid on the sacrifices of many freedom fighters and celebrated with much dedication, the 74th Independence Day on 15th August is a national holiday when people express their happiness by flying kites, listening patriotic songs and hoisting national flag.

To continue with the legacy, this Independence Day will be celebrated online by hosting the tricolor followed by National Anthem, patriotic songs and motivational speeches​ by Students and faculties.
