Team India cricketers, Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah, and others shared wishes for their fellow countrymen on the occasion of Independence Day on Monday, August 15. The country is celebrating Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav to mark 75 years of Independence from British Rule. Various functions have been held all across India to celebrate the day.
India achieved freedom on August 15 in 1947 from the British. On 14th August 1947, the Constituent Assembly of India met for its fifth session in New Delhi, where Jawaharlal Nehru delivered the Tryst with Destiny speech proclaiming India’s independence. Every year on the eve of Independence Day, the President of India delivers the “Address to the Nation”.
Indians pay their tributes to the freedom fighters and remember the freedom struggle that lasted for years every year on Independence. The Prime Minister hoists the Indian flag on the ramparts of the historical site of Red Fort in Delhi. This year, under the banner of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, several events will take place to celebrate the occasion.
Social media is flooded with wishes celebrating 75 years of India’s Independence. From Virat Kohli to Jasprit Bumrah, Indian cricketers too have shared wishes on the occasion of Independence Day through their social media profiles.

From being called snake charmers to becoming a nuclear powered state
From being looted by Britishers to becoming one of the biggest economy
Story of India from riches to rag and back to the riches is inspiring. I thank god for being an Indian.
Happy Independence Day to all. 🇮🇳 pic.twitter.com/kNX9770w8V
