Awakening of India@75

Bina Sabapathy

“Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav,” to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Indian independence is a beautiful concept. It was dedicated to the people of India and was an open invitation to awaken the Indians all across the globe to celebrate her rich culture, heritage, and achievements.

This ongoing Maha-Utsav or the mega festival of Amrit-Kal, and we wish that it never ends for India and the Indians. It is very special to all of us.

In her 75 years of Independence, India has achieved a lot. The natural respect and recognition of India and the Indians across the globe, speaks for her reputation. We today also thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his vision and achievement.

On this 75th anniversary of Independence, the “Har Ghar Tiranga” campaign encouraged every Indian to bring home the Tiranga (Tri-color) flag and hoist it in every household thus building a personal and emotional connection with the flag and its freedom fighters. It was also a successful effort in order to awaken the spirit of patriotism in all Indians.

Let us resolve to lay a foundation for “Aatmanirbhar Bharat” – a self-reliant India, and let us also not forget to remember and salute all those brave men and women who fought to free India.

Jai Hind!
