#IndependenceDayIndia⁠ ⁠

India is celebrating its 72nd Independence Day on Wednesday (August 15). For all Indians Independence Day is a day to remember the people who fought the Britishers and gave up their lives to free the countrymen from the clutches of the foreigners.  India’s freedom struggle was a hard-fought one and is celebrated every year with great pomp and grandeur to commemorate the special day.

Parades are held in all state capitals and district headquarters to celebrate Independence Day. Indians across the country also hoist the tricolour to mark the day.  On Independence Day, the Prime Minister greets the nation from the ramparts of the Red Fort in New Delhi.



An avid cricket lover, I just love this game more than anything. Writing about cricket keeps me closer to the game.
