Every year on 15th August, we celebrate Independence Day which marks the country’s independence from British rule. The day also coincides with the Partition of the country. On 15 August 1947, the first Prime Minister of independent India Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, hoisted the national flag at the Lahori Gate of Red Fort in New Delhi.
The day is usually celebrated with cultural programmes, flag-hoisting ceremonies, and other competitions. But this year, because of the pandemic, many restrictions have been put in place. It is, therefore, advised that you revel in patriotism from the safety of your house, maintain all safety guidelines. But do not forget to wish your dear ones on the special occasion.
