Let me share with you 3 images of Indian Independence celebrations in Jaipur that captures this occasion. Indian independence day is celebrated every year on 15th August.
The above and below pictures were clicked at the “Know Your Army” exhibition in Jaipur on the occasion of Indian Independence Day. Indian army’s Sapta Shakti unit organized a two-day event whereby they had displayed a large number of equipment like armament & surveillance devices, night vision binoculars, mobile operation theater, tanks, anti-aircraft guns, laser markers among other things for kids and public.
Grandparents accompanied this kid. Army uniform donned by the kid was specially custom made for wearing it on Independence Day. The kid stood on the artillery ferrying army truck & the proud grandfather clicked his picture.
This picture is dedicated to soldiers of the Indian Army who are always on guard to ensure that we all lead a normal life. Our neighboring country is well-known for its only export – Trained Terrorists & ultras! They are sent with a mission to cause maximum causalities and loss of life!! Indian army & Border Security Forces ensures that they don’t infiltrate the borders. This picture captures cut-outs which are part of the facade of a souvenir shop at Martyr’s Memorial with a reflection of Shahid Smarak (Martyr’s Memorial) Amar Jawan Jyoti in Jaipur. The souvenir shop is part of the Martyr Memorial museum.
The word “Eternal Soldier” carries so much meaning. It celebrates the spirit of a soldier who is ever ready to lay his life for the country.
The credit for India’s Independence movement goes to many freedom fighters, many of whom laid their life fighting for an Independent India. Since the current generation has never seen or heard much about them, they lack the connection which their grandparents or parents experienced with freedom fighters and leaders. In this context, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that people relate Independence better with the Indian army since the Kargil war with Pakistan took place less than 20 years ago.
Independence day is celebrated in Jaipur with flag hosting ceremonies in clubs, schools, and institutions. The most common way for celebrating independence day in Jaipur is by buying the Indian flag and playing patriotic songs. This day is marked by a public holiday in Jaipur.
