15th August 2022 marks the completion of 75 years of India's independence. The celebrations that commenced last year on 12th March, 2021 to mark the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav will continue until 2023 concluding with the 77th Independence day.
The Mahotsav is being celebrated along the following five themes:
- Freedom Struggle
This theme anchors our commemoration initiatives under Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav. It helps bring alive stories of unsung heroes whose sacrifices have made freedom a reality for us and also revisits the milestones, freedom movements etc. in the historical journey to 15 August, 1947.
This theme focuses on programmes and events inspired by ideas and ideals that have shaped us and will guide us as we navigate through this period of Amrit Kaal (25 years between India@75 and India@100). The world as we knew it is changing and a new world is unfolding. The strength of our convictions will determine the longevity of our ideas.
This theme focuses on our collective resolve and determination to shape the destiny of our motherland. The journey to 2047 requires each one of us to rise up and play our part as individuals, groups, civil society, institutions of governance etc. Only through our collective resolve, well laid out action plans and determined efforts will ideas translate into actions.
This theme focuses on all the efforts that are being undertaken to help India take its rightful position in the new world order emerging in a post covid world by highlighting the steps being taken to implement policies and actualise commitments. It encompasses Government policies, schemes, action plans along with commitments from businesses, NGOs, civil society that help actualise our ideas and help us collectively create a better tomorrow.
This theme focuses on marking the passage of time and all our milestones along the way. It is intended to grow into a public account of our collective achievements as a 75-year-old independent country with a legacy of 5000+ years of ancient history.
