Azadi ka Amrit Mohotsav

The word ‘freedom’ implies different ideas to different minds. For some, it could mean the ability to do what they like at any time. But for others, it meant something so precious, that they were willing to lay down their lives for it.

Freedom is a precious gift given to us by our freedom fighters. This gift that we enjoy every day, without even realizing its importance, was won as a result of great hardwork and determination. As we celebrate 75 years of freedom, we remember those brave souls who made the ultimate sacrifice. Their efforts have given India wings to fly and retake its rightful position at the top.

‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ is an initiative of the Government of India to celebrate 75 years of Independent India. The official journey of it commenced on 12th March 2021 which started a 75-week countdown to our 75th anniversary of independence and will end post a year on 15th August 2023.

According to our prime minister Shri. Narendra Modi ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ means the elixir of energy of our independence. This event is celebrated to wake the nation and fulfill the dream of good governance. It is also celebrated for global peace and development!

These celebrations revolve around two main themes - the freedom struggle and India’s achievements.

The freedom struggle theme helps bring alive stories of unsung heroes whose sacrifices have made freedom a reality for us Indians, while the latter theme focuses mainly on documenting all important national events and achievements that have occurred over the past 150+ years that have helped India collectively grow as a country.

‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ is a recent addition under the aegis of Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav. The purpose of this addition was to encourage people to bring home the Tri coloured flag and hoist it to mark India’s 75 years of Independence.

With independence day right around the corner, every street, shop and house of India is coming to life. When the ‘Tiranga’ is brought home, we form a personal connection with it. Apart from this, the Tiranga is also an incarnation of our commitment to grow as a nation together. The main purpose of introducing ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ was to invoke a feeling of patriotism within the people of India and to promote awareness about our National Flag.

Jai Hind!
