The pride, the happiness and the eternal strive for a better tomorrow keeps ever Indian alive amidst all odds.

Celebrating the 68th year of independence, Nehru Bal Sangh organised Jashn-e-Azadi. A glorious account of India’s history played out in front of a packed house. The audience were taken back in time when India could be best described as the soone ki panchi that the British had their eyes set on.

The journey traced the freedom struggle, the sacrifices of martyrs like Mangal Pandey, Bhagat Singh, Subhash Chandra Bose, Mahatma Gandhi till the momentous occasion that witnessed the unfurling of the Indian tri-colour at Red Fort instead of the Union Jack. India’s time is now. Beautifully and poignantly brought to life by Sadhya, directed by Santosh Nair, Jashn-e-Azadi was a celebration of history, of the spirit of the country and of the future that lies ahead for us.

The peformance instilled the various emotions that reflects in the journey from peace and serenity of the golden age, the pain and humiliation of suppression, the passion of Independence and the enthusiasm of progress of the present. The production also emphasised the need of the hour, for the nation to come together yet again, converting their concerns into actions. Santosh Nair shares, ‘The idea behind the production is to celebrate the spirit of freedom. It is also to emphasize the need to strongly pay attention to the fact that with freedom comes the roots of responsibility.’

And this was also reiterated by the chief guest for the celebrations - Karan Singh, member of parliament and president of Indian Council for Cultural Relations who said that India is progressing but no country can reach its pinnacle if a staggering percentage of citizens are deprived and starving. Singh urged those who were present to take it upon themselves to do their bit for the nation.

The National President of Nehru Bal Sangh Ashok Sahota said that Jashn-e-Azadi has been noticed not only by sensitive citizens but by all, that is what exactly what NBS aims at - every Indian should celebrate this day with full zeal and belongingness like we celebrate the other festivals.
