India is going to celebrate 75th Independence Day on August 15, 2021, but the COVID-19 pandemic has put many hurdles in celebrations. Most educational institutions are organizing events online to avoid public gatherings and allow for social distancing. This does not hinder the enthusiasm of students for celebrating.
There are many schools that are organizing virtual events like fancy dress competitions, virtual cultural programs, and intra school events. Even, the Flag-hoisting ceremonies will also likely be organized in schools and colleges but will be attended mainly by teachers and officials like last year, no students gathering is allowed this year also.
The central government is also encouraging everyone for online participation by setting up a website, ‘rashtragaan.in’, in which the students can upload videos of themselves singing the National Anthem and after compiling all the clips a full video will be made and played live on Independence Day 2021.
