India has a long history of festivals as a means of uniting the society and encouraging the spirit of collective celebrations. Even as India went under the Mughals and then the British for several Hundred years, the social bonding that Festivals brought about kept the Bharatiya spirit alive. After Independence and more so recently the Independence day has become one of the most celebrtaed Festivals although Independence Day is now more of a Marketing and Political agenda.
Independence Day greetings to all my fellow Indians. स्वतंत्रता दिवस की हार्दिक शुभकामनायें। जय हिन्द! #India
