India, as a nation, has come a long way since its independence in 1947. India was under British rule for almost 200 years and it was on August 15, 1947 that India was officially entitled a free nation.
It was the spirit of being independent that encouraged the freedom fighters to achieve their goal after overcoming a lot of struggles. Even today, this spirit of ‘being you’ guides the youth of this country to fight for their rights whenever they find that they are being suppressed.
Traditionally, people in India celebrate this national holiday by hoisting the Indian Flag, followed by many cultural events and colorful parades. Every private and public building in India is decorated in the tricolor of the Indian Flag fluttering on the top. Schools have special gatherings, inviting all the students to participate in various competitions like painting, singing, essay-writing, fancy-dress, rangoli making, skits and more. Many offices have Independence Day themed events and activities to celebrate this day.
While these customary celebrations are still observed, people nowadays express their enthusiasm using social media as well. Many social media platforms facilitate people to change their profile pictures using Independence Day frames and themes. Also people post pictures on their social media accounts, dressed especially for the occasion or expressing their love for the country. There are numerous hashtags being used on the net to tag the activities and festivities of the day.
