INDIA: On Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi pleaded with people to use the national flag, or “tiranga,” as their display picture (DP) on social media between August 2 and August 15.

He announced a campaign named “Har Ghar Tiranga” (tricolour on every house), which will be held from August 13 to 15, on his radio show “Mann Ki Baat.”

He replied, “Let us advance this cause by raising the National Flag at our residences.”

The campaign is a part of the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’ (‘Pious Festival of Freedom’), which was commemorated this year with several events and programs in advance of the 75th anniversary of Independence. It’s becoming a widespread movement, according to the PM.

He explained his decision to start the campaign to change social media profile pictures on August 2. Modi stated that August 2 is the birth anniversary of Pingali Venkayya, “who designed our national flag.”

Although Venkayya’s first design from 1921, which he gave to Mahatma Gandhi, differed slightly from the final version of the national flag, it served as a prototype. His design used the same three colours as now, but the centre was a charkha (spinning wheel, a representation of independence).

The Flag Code has also been modified by the national government for the “Har Ghar Tiranga” campaign. Earlier, machine-made and polyester flags were prohibited; now, any material, including polyester, cotton, wool, silk, and Khadi bunting material, may be used to make flags.

The size of the flag and the timing of its exhibition are both unrestricted. Until recently, the flag could only be flown between dawn and dusk.

Over 20 crore national flags will be flown for three days on top of homes, according to an official statement.

In his speech, PM Modi largely discussed Independence Day celebrations. People from all walks of life and all societal groups are taking part in various programs all around the nation, he claimed. “We will all be present to witness a magnificent and historic event when India completes 75 years of its independence.”

He also discussed some of his government’s plans. Ayurveda and several cultural fairs were both mentioned. He also expressed his congratulations to athletes who had success in July.

He continued, “I congratulate all those kids who have achieved success through their hard work and commitment. Class 10 and 12 results were just announced around the country.”
