People who were born after 1947 must be thankful to god that there were not born in the era of British Rule. Of course, we are as lucky as them too. We were born in an India where everything was conveniently provided to us along with the freedom underestimated by us. So, this year, on the Independence Day, let’s pay a tribute to all those iconic people whose efforts led to us living in this beautiful and independent country. Here are few interesting things you can do to Celebrate 70 Years Of Independence Day and let your patriotic side come out –
Kite Flying At India Gate
If that historical scene from ‘Rang De Basanti’ at India Gate didn’t give you Goosebumps, then we wonder what else could! That is the effect India Gate creates in terms of patriotism and so, it is one of the best places to visit on Independence Day. The sense of belongingness to the culture and heritage of the country will make you feel content. And take your kites along to enjoy with your friends.
Pay Homage At Raj Ghat
One more historical heritage site that holds importance from the past is Raj Ghat. Visit the place to pay homage to Mahatma Gandhi who endlessly fought for the country. Also, at the Samadhi, the new policies, resolutions and initiatives which are being taken for the country are announced. Isn’t that utterly interesting?
