Celebration of 70th Independence Day

The country is going to celebrate its 70th Independence Day celebration on 15th of August 2016 at Monday. The grateful nation would pay tribute and remember all the freedom fighters who had contributed a lot and fought for the Independence of India. The first Independence Day was celebrated in India on August 15th, 1947.
This year Independence Day celebration would be a special one as per report there is a plan by Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi to launch a programme named, 70 Saal Azadi-Zara Yaad Karo Kurbani” also called “Azadi 70”. The aim of this campaign is to make Indian people aware that country is first and individual is secondary as well as remember those supreme sacrifices made by the great freedom fighters of India during the freedom struggle.
In addition, there is also a plan to perform a week long “Tiranga Yatra” in order to motivate people regarding nationalism and patriotism. It will begin on August 15 on the occasion of India’s Independence Day by the members of parliament, state legislatures, and celebrities, all BJP ministers and lawmakers carrying the Indian Tricolour flag, which will take place from Arunachal border (with China) to the border with Pakistan (in Rajasthan, Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir).
Prime Minister in his “Mann Ki Baat” programme on radio has also asked for suggestions and advices for preparation of Independence Day speech to be delivered at rampart of historical Red Fort. Hopefully the large number of people of the country through tweets would have sent their suggestions to PM. The prime minister of India highlights over all the achievements of past year, important social issues and solutions, further development in the country, educational matters, etc during his speech on the Independence Day after paying tribute to the freedom fighter.
In addition, the celebration day takes places in different states of diverse culture traditions where Chief Ministers of individual states hoist the national flag flowed by various cultural activities by the participants.
There is also big risk of terrorist attacks while celebrating the Independence Day especially in major cities and a sensitive state like J&K. To meet any challenge elaborate security arrangements have been made by all security agencies.
We hope that this Independence Day celebration would pass off peacefully like previous year.
In our state, Independence Day is going to be celebrated in all over the state particularly at all government and non government institutions, educational institutions where flag hoisting, national anthem song play and parade ceremonies including other cultural programmes are expected to take place. The time has come to introspect every citizen of the country that in this 70 years of journey of independence, how much he/she has contributed in making India progressive. Our previous generation of 1947 period has longed to see India a free from British clutches and now they fulfilled their dream and responsibility lies on the shoulder of new generation to see India a super power in the world.
Let all of us pledge to make India a super power in the world so that no inimical forces could dare to keep evil eye on our sovereignty.
