India gladly celebrates its 73rd Independence Day on August 15. India attained freedom from the British rule on August 15 in 1947. Since then, the day is celebrated as the country’s Independence Day. The country’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru had then hoisted the Tricolour at the Lahori Gate of the Red Fort and made the announcement. Since then, the practice of unfurling the Tricolour at the Red Fort by the incumbent Prime Minister has been underway.
This Independence Day, let’s take a pledge to protect the peace and unity of our great nation. Happy Independence Day 2019 !
