This Independence Day is very special because it marks the beginning of the 76th year of independent India. India has come a long way since 1947; we have made great strides in terms of health, industry, scientific achievements, and more importantly, in lifting millions of people out of poverty.
The first Indian Independence Day was celebrated on August 15, 1947, making this year’s observance in 2022 the country’s 75th year of independence. The administration chose to call the event “Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav” to commemorate the day.
In March, the Ministry of Culture published the official website for Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav. The 75-week countdown to the 75th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence began on March 12, 2021, and will conclude on August 15, 2022, one year later.
What is Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav?
To honor India’s 75th anniversary of independence, as well as the rich history, culture, and accomplishments of its people, Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav is an initiative of the Indian government.
Aatmanirbhar Bharat fuels Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s goal of activating India 2.0, and this Mahotsav is dedicated to the people of India who have not only been essential in bringing India thus far in its evolutionary path, but also have the capacity and potential to achieve that vision.
The Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’s formal journey began on March 12th, 2021, and will culminate on August 15th, 2023, 75 weeks before our 75th anniversary of independence.
Celebrated around the country, Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav is a commemoration of India’s 75years of independence. In order to achieve the goal of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav—to ensure maximum “Jan Bhagidari” (participation from Indian citizens) while adhering to a “Whole of Government” approach—the campaign is being implemented through the organization of cultural events around the country (seamless coordination amongst all the Ministries, States and Union Territories of India).
According to the Home Ministry’s advisory, COVID-19 warriors should be welcomed and their commitment and research should be appreciated in the fight against the virus. Further, following the precautionary steps, the Ministry of Health Affairs (MHA) has issued guidelines to be followed during the event.
Apart from tight security, there will be an anti-radar Drone system will be used, so that any kind of drone should not fly over or near the Red Fort
The main goal of celebrating Independence Day is to educate our young generation about the pride and courage of our great freedom fighters, as well as a colonial rule. It’s the day when we put aside our cultural differences and come together as true Indians.
The necessity for youth awareness arises from the fact that the nation’s future rests on the youngsters and their power to influence the country. As a result, it is our responsibility to serve the country and make every effort to improve society.
Independence day is marked by a strong sense of patriotism and nationalism across the country. The day also reflects our pride and solidarity in the country’s diversity. India, a land of people of all religions living together in a diversified society with a rich culture and heritage, celebrates this significant occasion with tremendous joy. It motivates us to defend our motherland against any attack on the country’s dignity and sovereignty.

Independence Day is also celebrated by students and teachers in schools, colleges, and other educational institutions to pay tribute to our country.
