Independence Day is annually celebrated on 15th August, as a national holiday in India commemorating the nation’s independence from the United Kingdom on 15 August 1947, the UK Parliament passed the Indian Independence Act 1947 transferring legislative sovereignty to the Indian Constituent Assembly.
On 15 August 1947, the first Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru raised the Indian national flag above the Lahori Gate of the Red Fort in Delhi. On each subsequent Independence Day, the incumbent Prime Minister customarily raises the flag and gives an address to the nation.
The Indian diaspora celebrates Independence Day around the world with parades and pageants, particularly in regions with higher concentrations of Indian immigrants. In some locations, such as New York and other US cities, 15 August has become “India Day” among the diaspora and the local populace. Pageants celebrate “India Day” either on 15 August or an adjoining weekend day.
The holiday is observed throughout India with flag-hoisting ceremonies, parades and cultural events. This is a national holiday
15 August every year is a very auspicious day for the Indians who will get an opportunity to pay homage to all freedom fighters. Since it is a national holiday, all regional-level, state-level and national-level government offices will remain shut after the flag-hoisting ceremony.
Independence Day before Independence
At the 1929 Lahore session of the Indian National Congress, the Purna Swaraj declaration, or “Declaration of the Independence of India” was promulgated, and 15 August was declared as Independence Day. The Congress called on people to pledge themselves to civil disobedience and “to carry out the Congress instructions issued from time to time” until India attained complete independence.
Gandhi envisaged that besides the meetings, the day would be spent “… in doing some constructive work, whether it is spinning, or service of ‘untouchables,’ or reunion of Hindus and Mussalmans, or prohibition work, or even all these together”. Following actual independence in 1947, the Constitution of India came into effect on and from 26 January 1950; since then 26 January is celebrated as Republic Day.
LabourDay is set to celebrate the hard work and achievements of the labour class. It is celebrated on different days in different countries. However in most of the countries the day occurs on the 1st of May that happens to be International Workers Day .

labour day (मजदूर दिवस विशेष)
CHANDIGARH: In another attempt to rewrite the history, BJP government in Haryana has taken a decision not to celebrate May 1 as ‘Labour Day’ being observed by around 80 countries since 1886. Rather the state has decided to celebrate Vishwakarma Day as ‘Shramik Divas.’
Haryana minister of state for labour and employment Nayab Singh Saini said on Thursday, “Vishwakarma is the divine draughtsman of the whole universe. Since he is our ancestor we should celebrate labour day on his name.”
About the decision not to celebrate Labour Day on May 1, he reasoned, “We should understand the background of May 1 as to how the decision was taken to observe Labour Day on May 1.” He made it clear that the state government is not going to do any function or activity on May 1.
It was on May 1, 1886, that many labour unions started protests in Chicago and other cities of US demanding eight-hour workday. Protests continued and on May 4, 1886, at Haymarket Square in Chicago, police opened fire on protestors killing many and wounding hundreds of them. Later a decision was taken to observe May 1 as Labour Day in commemoration of the Haymarket tragedy.
