Over 1.5 crore Indians upload videos singing 'Rashtragaan': Ministry of Culture

On the occasion of 75th independence day, more than 1.5 crore Indians across the world uploaded their videos singing the national anthem on social media. The Ministry of Culture said in a statement on August 14 that many announced their joyful participation in 'Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav', which is being observed today.


The record-breaking numbers were set after the Ministry of Culture created a program to enable Indians around the world to sing the national anthem by August 15 and upload it on a website, reported ANI.


The ministry said that even eminent artists, well-known scholars, top leaders, senior officials, soldiers, famous sportsmen, and even people with special needs came together to sing the national anthem in one voice.


"When Indians sitting in a corner, thousands of miles away, sang the national anthem in private, their voices embodied the pride of one hundred and thirty-six crore citizens of India. The fact that more than 15 million entries were achieved in just twenty-one days is in itself living proof that when the people of India put their heart to something, no goal is difficult or unachievable," the ministry stated.


"The national anthem is a symbol of our pride. This program of singing the national anthem has not only created enthusiasm among all but the whole world has also got the message of strong unity of India," added the Ministry.
