The India Story | 75 years of India: Celebrating the Indian tricolour

As we near 75 years of India's independence, we take a look at the meaning of the tricolour for Indian citizens, and the idea behind unfurling the flag in every Indian home. 

As India gears up to celebrate 75 years of independence, all sectors in India are doing their bit to mark this milestone moment in India's history. The ASI has announced free entry in to all national monuments from 5th-15th August, ISRO will carry an 'AzaadiSat', built by all girl students, on its maiden SSLV flight and Prime Minister Modi has urged all citizens to take to Social Media to show off their pride in the nation.

While many events have been planned, front and center in all the festivities is the Har Ghar Tiranga Campaign, with the Cultural Ministry aiming to hoist the flag in 20 crore homes of India. But did you know there was a time when it was illegal for an ordinary citizen to hoist the tricolour? Vikram Chandra discusses the history of hoisting the flag in India with experts.

Watch The India Story with Vikram Chandra, Fridays at 8PM.
