As part of India’s 75th year of Independence or ‘Azaadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ celebrations, the Indian Army unfurled a 75-foot-long national flag at an iconic house in South India on Thursday.
The tricolor was deployed by amphibious warriors from the Pangode Military Area, Thiruvananthapuram. Vivekananda Rock is a hovering monument in Kanyakumari, in the far south of India, and this dwelling marks the confluence of the Indian Ocean, the Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea.
The match also witnessed a military band performing the patriotic song ‘Saare Jahaan Se Achchha’ and the martial art ‘Kalaripayattu’. In addition to this, Navy Space Commander Pangode marked a ‘Tiranga Yatra’ at Kanyakumari.
As a part of the yatra, 75 navy personnel carrying national flags will walk from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu to Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, thus covering a distance of 75 kilometres.
The Vivekananda Rock monument is built in honor of the world famous Indian monk, truth seeker and creator Swami Vivekananda (born Narendranath Dutt), at the time he attained enlightenment.
