76th Independence Day of India was celebrated at the Embassy of India in Kathmandu. The celebration was a part of 'Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav', which was launched by the Government of India in March 2021 to commemorate the historic milestone of 75 years of India's Independence.

The celebrations began with the hoisting of the national flag by Counsellor, Shri Prasanna Shrivastava. This was followed by reading the address to the nation from President of India, Smt. Droupadi Murmu. The President's message recalled the sacrifices made by our freedom fighters towards achieving India's freedom and highlighted the country's achievements in various fields. Using the words of India's nationalist poet Kuvempu, she urged India's youth to make "total sacrifice for the motherland and upliftment of fellow citizens".

The Embassy felicitated widows and next of kin of deceased Gorkha soldiers of the Indian Armed Forces by disbursing their dues worth NPR 2.65 Crore.
