15 August is the most historic day in Indian history as the nation celebrates its Independence Day. India will celebrate its 70th Independence Day on August 15, 2016. ... 15th August, 1947 is the historic day that marks India’s freedom from the stranglehold of the British Raj (Empire).

Independence coincided with the partition of India, in which the British Indian Empire was divided along religious lines into the Dominions of India and Pakistan; the partition was accompanied by violent riots and mass casualties, and the displacement of nearly 15 million people.

On 15 August 1947, Jawaharlal Nehru, who had become the first Prime Minister of India that day, raised the Indian national flag above the Lahore Gate of the Red Fort in Delhi.

The flagship event in Independence Day celebrations takes place in Delhi, where the Prime Minister hoists the national flag at the Red Fort and delivers from its ramparts a speech. The holiday is observed throughout India with flag-hoisting ceremonies, parades and cultural events. Indians celebrate the day by displaying the national flag on their attire, accessories, homes and vehicles; by listening to patriotic songs, watching patriotic movies; and bonding with family and friends.

Raksha Bandhan is a Hindu festival on 18 August that celebrates the love and duty between brothers and sisters. It is called Rakhi Purnima, or simply Rakhi, in many parts of India. On Raksha Bandhan, sisters tie a Rakhi (sacred thread) on her brother's wrist. This symbolizes the sister's love and prayers for her brother's well-being, and the brother's lifelong vow to protect her. The festival falls on the full moon day.
