During the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav (Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav) celebrations held by the Embassy of India in Russia on the occasion of the 75th Independence Day, the Indian national flag was flown from a parachute in the capital Moscow.
A video of a skydiver parachuting from mid-air in Russia was shared by the Indian Embassy on Twitter. It said, ‘Our national flag flying with great pride in the Russian sky while celebrating the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, Har Khar Tiranga campaign’.
In the 1-minute and 26-second video, a skydiver is seen flying thousands of feet above the ground on a parachute unfurling the Indian national flag as the tricolor flutters in the sky.
As India celebrates its 75th Independence Day today, various embassies have organized events and cultural programs to mark the occasion. Notably, the Council General of India in New York has organized a cultural festival to mark the occasion with a photo exhibition, art events, and musical performances.
The “Asadhi Ka Amrit Mahotsav” was celebrated all over the country as Prime Minister Modi flagged off a walk from Sabarmati to Dandi on March 12 last year to commemorate Mahatma Gandhi’s Dandi Yatra, which began on March 12, 1930.
