India will celebrate its 74th Independence Day on August 15, 2020. Independence day is one of the days when patriotism is in the air across the country. The occasion also reminds us of our valiant freedom fighters who fought selflessly and even sacrificed their lives for our country to attain freedom from colonial rule.
Flag hoisting ceremonies and cultural programs are held in the state capitals often involving many schools and organizations. However, this year due to ongoing pandemic the celebration will be different.
Our Hindi film industry is so diverse and so vibrant that it has got songs for every mood and all kinds of celebrations. When it comes to ignite the spark of patriotism among the audience, Bollywood has set new levels every year.
