On 15th August, the entire IIT Bombay campus will come together to cherish the spirit of liberation that will engulf the whole nation on its 71st Independence Day. It will be an occasion to reminisce the sacrifices of the brave martyrs and patriotic countrymen that laid the foundation of a free and independent India.
To symbolize these notions, the student gymkhana grounds of the institute will play host to flag hoisting by the director of the institute, Professor Devang Khakhar, in the presence of a gathering of students, professors and the residents of the institute. A speech will be delivered by the Professor Devang and patriotic songs reminding the audience of the diverse country's legacy are to be played.
The essence of independence the nation earned through countless sacrifices and constant struggle will be deeply introspected amidst a resolve to never bend to the tyranny of any force that challenges our fundamental right of freedom.
