Celebrating 75 Years Of Independence

On the 15th of August of every year, millions of people wake up to celebrate Independence Day to commemorate the day when, after a long period of almost 150 years, India achieved independence from British Rule. The United Nations Educational Scientific Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) World Heritage Site of Red Fort is where the Indian Prime Minister hoists the National Flag from the ramparts of the fort every year on Independence Day.

To honour India’s 75th anniversary of independence, as well as the rich history, culture, and accomplishments of its people, Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav is an initiative of the Indian government. Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav has five main themes:
