Independence Day

Since the British left India permanently in 1947, the 15th of August has been designated as India's Independence Day. Even after India gained its independence on August 15, 1947, the Congress continued to commemorate this date as Independence Day, and on January 26, 1950, the country was declared a republic. That day, India became a sovereign nation, free of the British Dominion status.

The Indian Independence Movement, characterised by nonviolent resistance and civil disobedience in large measure, culminated in the country's independence.

When British India was partitioned along religious lines, creating the Dominions of India and Pakistan, it was accompanied by bloody riots, large-scale casualties, and the forced emigration of nearly 15 million people. When Jawaharlal Nehru became India's first prime minister, he raised the Indian flag above the Lahori Gate of Delhi's Red Fort.

Ustad Bismillah Khan's shehnai music is usually the first piece to be broadcast by Doordarshan, India's national broadcaster. India celebrates Independence Day with flag-raising ceremonies, parades, and other festivities. 

Schools and colleges hold ceremonial events, such as raising the flag, and other types of cultural activities. Government and non-government organisations both use paper and balloon decorations to adorn their interiors, and prominent government buildings are frequently decked out in lights and portraits of freedom fighters.

Kite flying is a popular tradition in Delhi and other cities. Many different sized national flags are flown to show allegiance to one's country. Tri-coloured trinkets can be found on everything from clothing and wristbands to automobiles and even household items. Since its inception, the celebration has evolved from an expression of nationalist pride to a more inclusive celebration of India as a whole.


Prime Minister Narendra Modi then speaks to the nation via televised address, recalling major achievements of India in recent years while also laying out future challenges and goals. As a celebration of the country's independence, kite flying has become a popular pastime. In addition, even though the government offices in New Delhi are closed for the holiday, they keep their lights on to commemorate the occasion.
