India Independence Day

Last month, India celebrated its 69th birthday.

On August 15, 1947 India attained its independence from the British Empire. On that day, India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru raised the national Indian flag above the Lahori Gate of the Red Fort in Delhi.

Independence Day, one of three Indian national holidays, includes flag hoisting ceremonies and other cultural traditions taking place throughout schools and colleges across the land.

This year we received photos that captured our students at Sunrise Home and the Blind School looking sharp as they celebrated their country’s Independence.
