India will mark 75 years of Independence Day on August 15, 2022, Monday. Our country gained freedom from British rule on August 15, 1947 that reminds the sacrifices of our freedom fighters for the independence of India and this day is celebrated as a national holiday all over the country. I am very excited to celebrate Independence Day.
Indian Government has organized several events under ‘’Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’’ with the theme ‘’Nation First, Always First’’. The Government of India also launched a new initiative ‘’Har Ghar Tiranga’’ campaign to celebrate the 75th Independence Day.
On this day, the people of our country honor the sacrifices of our freedom fighters for independence by hoisting the national flag with singing the national anthem. Firstly, the President of India delivers “The address to Nation” before Independence Day at evening. The Prime Minister of India hoists the National Flag and delivers a speech to the Nation at the Red Fort in New Delhi. It is a guiding speech for the people of the Nation. There are many programs are organized in schools and colleges on this day.
