15TH AUGUST – THE INDEPENDENCE DAY OF INDIA
India got free from the rule of British Empire on 15th august, 1947. And thus 15th august is celebrated as Independence Day all over the country. This day is the national holiday / festival of our country.
On 15th August 1947, India’s first P.M., Mr. Jawaharlal Nehru raised the national flag i.e. “Tiranga”, above the Red Fort, in New Delhi. And thus each year this festival is started with the flag hoisting by the P.M. of the country at Red Fort followed by the singing of our national anthem i.e. “Jana Gana Mana”.
This national festival is celebrated with the flag hoisting ceremonies, singing patriotic songs, parades and cultural events. The President and the P.M. delivers speech to the country on this auspicious occasion.
There is also an interesting fact about the Independence Day. And the fact is that between the year 1930 and 1947, the Indian National Congress celebrated the Independence Day on 26th January, which today is celebrated as the Republic Day.
This year the flag at the Red Fort will be hoisted by the present P.M., Shri Narendra Modi. He will start this ceremony for the first time as a P.M. This year India will celebrate its 68th Independence Day.
Gaaten hai Hum Gatha Unke Balidan Ki, Laaj Rakhi Hai Jinhone Is Desh Ke Aan Ki,
Swatantra Karaya Jinhone Bharat Mata Ko, Sat Sat Naman Un Sahid Jawan Ko.
Wish you all a very happy Independence Day….. Jai Hind Jai Bharat
आप सभी को स्वतंत्रता दिवस की हार्दिक शुभकामनाएं ….जय हिन्द जय भारत
