While briefing the volunteers in a prior meeting, District Youth Officer Khushal Gupta said that our relationship with the flag has always been more formal and institutional than personal.
Bringing the flag collectively as a nation in the 75th year of independence thus becomes symbolic of not only an act of personal connection to the Tiranga but also an embodiment of our commitment to nation-building. The idea behind the initiative is to invoke the feeling of patriotism and to promote awareness about the Indian National flag.
