In a few days, Independent India will turn 75.

It is a time to look back, to learn from mistakes and celebrate the achievements.

It is a time to look forward, to implement the lessons learnt, to grow as a world leader, to strengthen its democracy.

And it is a time to celebrate.

The central government, as part of the various celebratory Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav events, held a Tiranga Yatra across the country.

Its aim was to raise awareness about the Har Ghar Tiranga campaign, which encourages people to hoist the national flag at their homes and commemorate the 75th anniversary of India's Independence.

Here's a look at how the nation responded to the call:
