Independence Day in India is celebrated every year on August 15. It is a time where people pay tribute to its leaders and remembering those who fought for the country's freedom.
The day is typically spent with family and friends at a park, going to a film, or eating a meal together. Patriotic songs are sung or listened as well. Government and local businesses are closed (gazetted holiday).
On August 15, 1947, India became an independent nation from the colonial powers. The struggle for independence dates back to 1857.
