India is celebrating 75 years of Independence today. Prime Minister Narendra Modi led the celebrations from the ramparts of the Red Fort in New Delhi. He offered rich tributes to our freedom fighters like Mahatma Gandhi, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Babasaheb Ambedkar, Bhagat Singh and others.
The PM did not use the teleprompter to deliver his speech but instead used paper notes to address the nation. To celebrate 75 years of India’s Independence, 75 artists from across the country joined together to release a patriotic song ‘Jaya Hey 2.0’.
In his speech, the PM stated that women have a critical role to play and that if they are uplifted and empowered, India can achieve its goals in a shorter time with less effort. The PM sported a tricolour turban while addressing the nation.
