Happy 74th Independence Day 2020.

August 15 marks the occasion of Independence Day in India, and this year we are celebrating 74 years of independence from the British Rule. After almost two centuries under imperial rule and after countless sacrifices and struggles, Indians won their freedom on August 15, 1947. Men, women and children lost their lives with pride in uprisings against the British, and managed to successfully drive them out of our motherland.

Observed as a national holiday across the country, Independence Day honours the sacrifices and dedication of the bravehearts who aimed for one goal - to simply be free from slavery of the colonisers. People all over the country host flag hoisting ceremonies and sing the national anthem to celebrate the day filled with patriotic spirits.

The sheer depth of pride felt by every Indian as they look at their country’s tricoloured flag unfurl, is a sight to behold. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, these flag hoisting ceremonies will not be organised this Independence Day, but citizens are encouraged to do the same in their own homes and with family only in lieu of social distancing.
