The ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ initiative, which began on August 13 and will continue till August 15, aims to invoke an emotion of patriotism in every citizen of the country. It also seeks to make the relationship with the national flag a more personal one rather than just keeping it formal or institutional.
India is celebrating Independence Day as Amrit Mahotsav on completion of 75 years of independence and on this occasion, Prime Minister Narendra Modi hoisted the ‘Tricolor’ for the 9th time on the ramparts of Red Fort.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday hailed the diversity of India and said while our talent may be restricted by language barriers, pride should be taken in the variety of languages that exist in the country. Addressing the nation from the ramparts of the Red Fort on the 76th Independence Day, Modi said India’s strengths are diversity and democracy.
“India has many languages, sometimes our talent is restricted by language barriers, we need to be proud of every language in our country,” he said. He also said India’s diversity needs to be celebrated. “India is mother of democracy, diversity is its strength,” the prime minister said. “Our nation has proved that we have an inherent strength from our diversity and the common thread of patriotism makes India unshakeable,” Modi said.
