“The Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav means elixir of independence energy; elixir of inspirations of freedom fighters; elixir of new ideas and pledges; and elixir of Aatmanirbharta.” As a result, this Mahotsav is a festival of national awakening; a festival of realising the dream of good governance; and a festival of global peace and development,” PM Modi said of the government campaign aimed at instilling patriotism and raising awareness about the national flag.
