India’s 76th Independence Day: Painting For The Nation


With India marking it’s 76th Independence Day on August 15th, 2022, the Symbiosis International University (SIU) celebrated the joyous occasion by organizing exciting events from August 8th to August 15th under the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ initiative. 

As part of the programme, an essay writing competition was held at the Symbiosis Centre for Media and Communication (SCMC) on August 8th, followed by a drawing competition on August 13th, both of which saw enthusiastic participation by the students. 

Students of both Batch 2023 and Batch 2024 – currently on campus – participated in the drawing event, with the theme being ‘Tricolour of my life’. Participants were given an hour to draw or sketch or paint their idea on paper. 

Excited to portray visually what the Tricolour means to them, students produced art pieces that were both thoughtful and symbolic, as they contemplated on the meaning that the three colours of the national flag carry. 

It put the young minds to think and reflect upon what they are proud of and what the ‘Tiranga’ represents in their life. This event and its theme made the students appreciate the value of the national flag in their lives, and the immense respect that we owe it.

Today, India is a country with achievements to boast of in every field – from economy to education, sports to service, and medicine to mathematics. Our Tricolour, flying high, is symbolic of our pride and a representation of the achievements as a country.
