On Saturday, Indore broke its own record for the longest human chain used to create an Indian map. As a result of the greatest human chain forming the country’s map to celebrate Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, which marked 75 years of Indian Independence, the event was officially recorded in the World Book of Records.
A social organisation called “Jwala” organised the event at Divya Shaktipeeth, and more than 5000 schoolchildren, social workers, and other participants joined together to create the map. The goal of this initiative, according to Dr. Divya Gupta, originator of “Jwala,” is to beat the existing world record for the longest human chain in a geodesic shape.
According to Dr. Divya Gupta, the originator of “Jwala,” through this initiative, an attempt will be made to beat the existing world record for the longest human chain in a geographic shape.
“We had made a human chain on the map of India, and not only on the border but also inside it. Earlier, a human chain was formed on the boundary line of the country’s map, but we gathered people inside by making tricolor and blue Ashok Chakra in the middle. Total 5,335 people participated in this event,” she further said.
On March 12, 2021, the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’s formal journey was underway, beginning a 75-week countdown to our nation’s 75th anniversary of independence. The goal of the initiative is to encourage Indians everywhere to fly the flag at home. Instead of just keeping it formal or institutional, the program’s goal is to make the bond with the national flag more personal.
The Union Ministry of Culture stated on Wednesday that all monuments and sites nationwide that are under the protection of the Archaeological Survey of India will be free to enter from August 5 to 15 in honour of India’s 75th anniversary of independence.
