From Kathua to Kupwara, residents of the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, particularly students are organizing rallies, waving the national tricolour, and enthusiastically waiting to join "Har Ghar Tiranga" campaign.
The campaign is being celebrated under the aegis of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav to encourage people to bring the Tiranga home and hoist it to mark the 75th year of India's independence from 13th to 15th August.
The idea behind the initiative is to invoke the feeling of patriotism in the hearts of the people and to promote awareness about the Indian National Flag.
Our relationship with the flag has always been more formal and institutional than personal. Bringing the flag home collectively as a nation in the 75th year of independence thus becomes symbolic of not only an act of personal connection to the Tiranga but also an embodiment of our commitment to nation-building.
