Prime Minister Narendra Modi has declared that August 14 will be observed as ‘Partition Horrors Remembrance Day’ in memory of people’s struggles and sacrifices during that period.

India will be celebrating the 75th year of Independence on Sunday. The day is recognised as that of national pride and honour, with the Prime Minister hoisting the flag and addressing the country from the Red Fort every year. A day prior to Independence Day, the President of the country delivers a televised ‘address to the nation’.
