75 Years of India’s Independence – Azadi ka Amrut Mahotsav
This is in reference to the notifications issued by the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting regarding the celebrations of 75 years of India’s Independence- “Azadi Ka Amrut Mahotsav”. The celebrations which commenced 75 weeks prior to the Independence Day 2022 would continue up to 15th August 2023. Hon’ble Prime Minister inaugurated the year-long celebrations from Gujarat on 12th March 2021, which also marks the 91st anniversary of the historic Salt Satyagraha led by Mahatma Gandhi. Henceforth, all the educational institutions have been advised to celebrate ‘Azadi Ka Amrut Mahotsav’ by organizing plethora of events viz. conference/seminar/symposium/essay competition and related activities/events in their respective campuses as part of the year-long celebrations. In light of the above, the University of Delhi commenced celebrations of 75 years of India’s Independence “Azadi ka Amrut Mahotsav” by organizing an inaugural seminar and ‘Charkha Karyashala’ at the Gandhi Bhawan on Friday 12th March 2021 at 11 A.M. The Dean Students’ Welfare Office and Gandhi Bhawan jointly coordinated the event.
Towards this endeavor, the active participation of our constituent colleges would be highly appreciable and relevant. In this context, it is proposed that each college will be requested to organize various online activities/events in their respective Colleges and encourage students to participate and celebrate the landmark achievements. The festival of 75 years of independence should be such that the spirit of the freedom struggle, a tribute to the martyrs and a pledge and resolve to build India of their dreams could be experienced. The series of events organized to commemorate the 75th anniversary of India’s independence would be based on public participation and revolve around five themes: (i) the freedom struggle, (ii) ideas, (iii) achievements, (iv) actions and (v) resolve at 75.
In this regard, each College will be requested to appoint a Nodal officer/s to facilitate the activities based on the theme – 75 years of India’s Independence ‘Azadi Ka Amrut Mahotsav’ in their respective Colleges. The contact details (mobile number and e-mail id) of the same should be mailed to the office of DSW as the nodal center. The colleges will also be requested to have a dedicated section on their respective websites for ‘Azadi Ka Amrut Mahotsav’ and put all the notices and matters pertaining to the Mahotsav in this section.
