Come Saturday the world’s largest democracy will observe its 69th Independence Day. India, which attained Independence from the British rule on 15 August 1947, celebrates the day by unfurling the tricolour and paying tributes to its freedom fighters.

The main function of Independence Day is held at the Red Fort in New Delhi, where prime minister hoists the national flag and addresses the nation. Narendra Modi will hoist the tricolour for the second time (race against time phrase meaning) this year as the prime minister.
