Independence Day is around the corner and the country will soon dress in the colours of tricolours. From schools, colleges, offices to other institutions, everything gets a sprinkle of our national flag denoting the day we got independence from the Britishers and how high we hold our tricolour. Independence Day is marked with the hoisting of the national flag and singing of the national anthem. Various competitions, events and programs are also held on the day for both children and adults. People draw rangolis in the colour of saffron, white and green beautifully outside housing societies and offices.
