These events were conducted under the theme of ‘Meri Maati, Mera Desh.’ The day’s activities kicked off with a vibrant ‘Prabhat Pheri’ or morning procession in Zone Kangan.

‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ Campaign

The ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign operates as a part of the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, aiming to inspire countrymen to bring the national flag, Tiranga, into their homes and raise it to commemorate the 76th anniversary of India’s independence.

According to the government website, “bringing the flag home collectively as a nation in the 76th year of independence thus becomes symbolic of not only an act of personal connection to the Tiranga but also an embodiment of our commitment to nation-building.”

“The idea behind the initiative is to invoke the feeling of patriotism in the hearts of the people and to promote awareness about the Indian National Flag,” it added.

Full Dress Rehearsal

Meanwhile, preparations for the 76th Independence Day celebrations scheduled for August 15th are in full swing. Concurrently, a full dress rehearsal for the forthcoming Independence Day celebrations has been arranged. Consequently, traffic diversions have been implemented on several roads across Delhi. Furthermore, the traffic police have issued a cautionary notice, suggesting individuals consider alternate routes. Until 11 am, a number of routes in Delhi remained closed for traffic.

Independence Day or Swatantrata Diwas, holds paramount significance in India’s history as it signifies the nation’s liberation from over 200 years of British colonial rule. The day fills all Indians with immense pride and is celebrated with a deep sense of patriotism. On August 15, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the nation from the ramparts of the Red Fort, recounting the untold stories of freedom fighters and highlighting the recent advancements the country has achieved.
