'Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav' is an initiative of the Government of India to celebrate and commemorate 75 years of progressive India and the glorious history of its people, culture and achievements. 75 years of independence for India is significant as it stands as a reminder of the sacrifices that many freedom fighters made to get independence from British rule.
