Sudarsann Pattnaik Creates Sand Art Saluting COVID Warrios on I-Day:

India gained independence from the British on August 15, 1947. After being ruled by foreign forces for 200 years, they were finally made to leave the land. However, they left the country as a barren land after plundering it of all goodness. It is the efforts of the freedom fighters that made them leave the country. As we celebrate 74th Independence Day, Indians look back at the progress the country has made post-independence. After years of being oppressed, the country has today emerged as a powerful one with leading science and technology other than development in various sectors. We wish all Indians a very Happy Independence Day!
