Independence Day of INDIA is celebrated on Fifteen of August to commemorate its independence from British rule and its birth as a sovereign nation in 1947. The day is a National holiday in India. There were many women freedom fighters of India like Rani Lakshmi Bai of Jhansi, Kasturba Gandhi, Kamala Nehru, Vijaya Lakshmi Pundit and so on. Among them Sarojini Naidu also known by the sobriquet The Nightingale of India. She joined the Indian Independence movement, in the wake of the aftermath of partition.
Miss Padmaja Naidu daughter of Sarojini Naidu, devoted herself to the cause of Nation like her mother. At the age of 21, she entered the National scene and became the joint founder of the Indian National Congress of Hyderabad. She was jailed for taking part in the “Quit India” movement in 1942. The list of women who participated in the freedom struggle is impressive, and these women not only fought for the freedom of the country, but were instrumental in fighting for the cause of women.
Flag hoisting ceremonies and cultural programs take place in all the state capitals. In the cities around the country the national flag is hoisted by politicians in their constituencies. In various private organisations the flag hoisting is carried out by a senior official of that organisation. All over the country, flags are given out to citizens who wear them proudly to show their patriotism towards India. Schools and colleges around the country organize flag hoisting ceremonies and various cultural events within their premises, where younger children in costume represent their idols of the Independence era.
