Thousands of freedom fighters and patriots lost their lives so that the coming generations could live a peaceful life in Independent India. Since then it’s been 70 glorious years of Independence on this Indian Independence Day 2016.
Like the entire nation, the Jaipur city could also be seen draped in the colours of the tricolour. Several Independence Day celebration programs took place to salute the known, unknown and the unheard heroes behind the country’s freedom story. Here are 11 photographs from the 2016 Independence Day Celebration in Jaipur which took place last evening on Monday, August 15, 2016.
