Independence day(India) flag hoisting and celebrations

The flag which was hoisted when India won its Independence in 1947 is hoisted since then and is an essential part of the ceremony which takes place in the capital of the country, Delhi, every year followed by a delivery of speech from our respected prime minister. The years achievements and the future developments are part of their speech. Along with the prime minister who will pay his tribute to the freedom fighters of our nation tomorrow, i would also like to pay my humble tribute to our great matrys and freedom fighters for it is them, that we are able to see an independent India today. Those fighters who fought and sacrificed their lives in order to save future generations from the rule of the British in India. Its a day of pride and joy in our hearts....

At the red fort, Delhi, the VIPS and its commoners, will gather together to take part in the ceremonies. The hoisting of the Indian flag, the singing of the national anthem as the flag is being hoisted, the followed by the PM's speech, and a perfect parade by officers and jawans. The main and major attraction is here.....

Its also a pleasure to watch the flag hoisting ceremonies and cultural programs which are organised in great enthusiasm in individual school premises, offices and even locally across the country. Sweets are given out, kites soar in the sky, jets color the sky with the tricolors, as part of celebrations and rejoicing. Buildings of importance are decorated. Celebrations are held by local committee members or respective members of particular schools and offices.

History of Independence day(India)

India attained freedom from the grip of British domination and rule back in the 1940's. The tryst of destiny was a speech read out by the then prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru on the stoke on midnight of 15th august 1947, to which India's Independence was declared. The struggle for Indian independence began with the colonialization of India by Europeans. They came to India as traders but over the period of time they rose to power took control of Indian affairs. British occupied most parts of India whereas Portuguese and French also had their influence on few places The first uprising which is noted in the history of independence of India took place in 1857. This first war of Indian independence, was termed as a mutiny by the British. Although not a success, this revolt sowed the seed for a new force, which was to take this struggle to its rightful end. As British oppression strengthened so did the urge to attain the freedom from it. This urge found voice in form of many great leaders such as Subhash Chandra Bose, Lala Lajpat Rai, Bhagat Singh, Rajguru, Sukhdev, Khudiram Bose, Ram Prasad Bismil,Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel to name a few. These great patriots along with a lot unnamed freedom fighters sacrificed their lives for the cause of the nation. Independence from the British rule was the sole aim of their lives. This dream of millions of Indians was realized when finally India got freedom on August 15, 1947. The joy of independence brought along with it the grief of partition! The country was divided into two parts – India and Pakistan. Pakistan assumed August 14 as its independence day whereas August 15 was declared the independence day for India.

Respect for the tricolor can be felt in every heart, every corner of the country
