PM Modi has suggestion for social media profile pic ahead of I-Day: Check out
New Delhi/IBNS: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Sunday urged people to put the "tiranga" ('tricolour', the national flag) as their display pictures on social media profiles between Aug 2 and 15.
In his 'Mann Ki Baat' radio broadcast, he flagged a movement called 'Har Ghar Tiranga' (tricolour on every house) being organised from Aug 13 to 15.
"By becoming a part of this movement, from August 13 to 15, you must hoist the tricolour at your home, or adorn your home with it. The tricolour connects us, inspires us to do something for the country," he said.
"I also have a suggestion that from the 2nd of August to the 15th of August, all of us can place the tricolour in our social media profile pictures," he added.
PM Modi also informed that Aug 2 is the birth anniversary of Pingali Venkaiah who designed the Indian national flag.
"I pay my respectful homage to him. Talking about our national flag, I will also remember the great revolutionary Madam Cama. Her role in shaping the Tricolor has been very important," said the PM.
Modi said the biggest message that emerges from all these events being organized in the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav "is that all of us countrymen should follow our duty with full devotion."
"Only then will we be able to fulfill the dream of those countless freedom fighters… and to build the India of their dreams. That is why this Amrit Kaal of our next 25 years is Kartavyakaal, a period of duty for every countryman," he added.
PM Modi, in the address, mainly focused on events to celebrate Independence. "People from all walks of life and from every section of the society are participating in different programmes across the country," he said.
"When India completes 75 years of its Independence, all of us are going to witness a glorious and historic moment," the PM added.
