Republic Day 2022 is special in many ways as it falls in the 75th Year of India’s Independence. As part of Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, many new events have been introduced as part of Republic Day celebrations.

The endeavour has been to make it truly a celebration of people by encouraging their participation from all walks of life. Also create / rekindle a spirit of nationalism and patriotism in them in the run up to the R-Day events.

Veer Gatha is one such unique project that has been launched to inspire the school children of our country with the stories of war heroes, brave hearts, and it has elicited a tremendous response from all over the country.
