NEW DELHI: India is going to celebrate Independence Day on August 15, 2021. This year marks the 75th year anniversary of our Independence but the COVID-19 pandemic has put paid to full-fledged celebrations. Most institutions will hold events online to avoid public gatherings and allow for social distancing. This does not thwart the enthusiasm of students for celebrating.

Many schools are organising virtual events like fancy dress competitions, virtual cultural programmes and intra school events. Flag-hoisting ceremonies will likely be held in schools and colleges but will be attended mainly by teachers and officials like last year.

Even the central government is encouraging online participation by setting up a website,, where students can upload videos of themselves singing the National Anthem. The clips will be compiled into a full video and played live on Independence Day 2021.
