Happy 74th Independence Day
The date 15th of August 1947 is a very important day in Indian history. It is the day when India woke up with freedom and became independent after lots of hard struggle and sacrifices of thousands of freedom fighters. Commemorating the nation’s independence from British rule, India will celebrate its 74th Independence Day this year. Though every year Independence Day is celebrated with great pomp and show and the honourable PM delivers a speech from the historic monument RED FORT. Also, each state invites its Governor or CM as chief guest to unfurl the tricolour National Flag. Besides this, each school and college have their own chunk of celebration with plays, songs, dance and remembrance of those people who sacrificed their lives for our freedom.
But this year owing to the ongoing Coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no social gatherings and all states and government offices have been asked to webcast their events and celebrations. Even at the Red Fort where our honourable PM delivers speech followed by spectacular performances by military bands will be restricted and limited.
Some places also have Kite flying event associated with Independence Day. People symbolise their patriotism by using the flag in different sizes and also decorate their homes and belongings with the colours of the national flag.
A Brief History of India’s Independence Day
Indians suffered domination of the British colonisers for approx. 200 years. Britishers control over India was gained by the victory of English East India Company at the Battle of Plassey. Indian history is full with various events of retaliation and uprisings that eventually drove the Britishers out and forced former viceroy, Lord Mountbatten, to free India on August 15, 1947, after giving the mandate to transfer the power to Indians.
Finally on the eve of 15th August 1947, first PM of independent India Late Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru unfurled the tricoloured National Flag at the Red Fort in the National Capital, New Delhi. The day also marked the partition of British-ruled India into two countries, India and Pakistan.
