Indian Independence Day, or 15th August, commemorates the historic day when India got its freedom from British rule in 1947. India was a part of the British Empire for many centuries; only after a long and tough struggle did our country finally attain freedom. Each year, 15th August is celebrated with great splendour in our country. Flag-hoisting ceremonies are held in many places, and people sing the national anthem as a mark of their patriotism towards the country.
But this year, many restrictions have been put in place because of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is, therefore, advised that you celebrate indoors and maintain all safety guidelines. But while doing so, do not forget to wish your near and dear ones for the special occasion from the comfort of your homes!
