Foolproof safety measures to help you celebrate Independence Day like a true patriot
Who says that pandemic has to put a damper on this most important day? Read on to know how you can honour it in style!
This year, India is proud to celebrate its 74th Independence Day on August 15. This is a very important occasion indeed, as it is the anniversary of our country’s freedom from over 200 years of British rule. However, Independence Day 2020 will be a little different from the others years of celebration, as this time we find ourselves battling a pandemic, where it is of the utmost importance to stay safe and maintain social distancing. It is probably not the best idea to attend a crowded march or go out to party. This doesn’t mean that there aren’t other safer ways to honour this special day that are just as much fun– if not more so!
Watch an episode from the Bengali TV serial Netaji, which revolves around the great freedom fighter Subhash Chandra Bose:
For this 74th Independence Day, you can have a much more intimate celebration with your family and close friends. If you are a movie buff, why not break out the snacks and sit down to watch some top-class patriotic movies with them? Choose from a host of exciting Bengali films like Panther: Hindustan Meri Jaan and Elar Char Adhyay which you can stream here on ZEE5!
There’s nothing better than some wonderful music to honour Independence Day with, so tune into some brilliant patriotic songs which will fill you with immense pride for the nation, and make you want to stand to attention and sing along! Listen to classics like Vande Mataram and Ekla Chalo Re on your favourite musical reality TV show, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa. The performances by some of our country’s most talented artists will leave you feeling dazzled and inspired.
You can also organise a cookout at home with your family, and make sure to feature everyone’s favourite dishes on the menu! What better way to honour a landmark event than with delicious food, amazing music, and awe-inspiring entertainment? Doesn’t it sound like a much better combination than going out in the heat and tussling with a sea of people (which is now a dangerous scenario, to say the least)?
