India is celebrating its Independence Day this year with crowds of people and people enjoying the Independence Day Parade and Parade of Lights.
In a country where the population of more than 1.2 billion people is about a third larger than the population at the turn of the century, the celebrations are part of an ongoing effort to re-embrace the spirit of independence and reclaim the country’s identity.
The parade will start from Thane and continue towards Indira Gandhi’s house in the national capital and culminate in a traditional ceremony on the grounds of the historic Jamia Masjid.
There will be fireworks, a musical performance by a local band, a parade of lights, the singing of the national anthem and the waving of the Indian flag.
But it is not the celebrations that are happening here.
For the first time since the end of British rule, Indians are going to celebrate Independence Day with the National Anthem, the Indian National Anthem and the flag.
This is not something that has been happening in India for a very long time.
Indian nationalism, which is rooted in the 1798 British Raj, was born in the aftermath of the devastating Indian Mutiny.
Its roots go back to 1805 when the then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru led a rebellion against British rule in the Indian subcontinent.
He and other leaders, led by then-prime minister Jawaharkar Singh, led a large number of people from across the Indian diaspora to the British capital in an attempt to get their grievances against British oppression and exploitation heard.
As a result, the British forced Indian migrants to flee to London, where they settled and built the capital, London.
The British had been trying to force the Indian nation to be a colony since 1807.
This led to the establishment of the British Raj.
The constitution was drawn up in 1807 and became the basis of the countrys law and order.
It was also the foundation of the nations constitution, which was passed in 1947.
Prime Minister Jawahar Lal Nehru was the architect of this constitutional framework, which allowed for the creation of the Republic of India, which would become the world’s longest continuously functioning democracy.
India’s Constitution was also a blueprint for the country, which began with the Indian national anthem.
The song is a powerful symbol of India’s sovereignty and independence and the people of India are the ones who can decide the tune of the anthem.
Even today, the national song has been used as a political tool by the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to paint the country as a Hindu nation, a party that was supposed to rule India, even after the 1947 partition.
When the BJP won power in 2014, its chief minister, Narendra Modi, had his first ever Independence Day parade in Mumbai.
It was the first major parade in India.
