Indian Army hoists world’s largest Khadi national flag on Army Day

As a part of 74th Army Day celebrations, `Monumental National Flag,` the world`s largest national flag made from Khadi, was displayed along the India-Pakistan border in Rajasthan`s Longewala on Saturday. Longewala was the center stage of the battle between India and Pakistan in 1971.

The Southern Command unveiled the flag of size 225 feet by 150 feet at Jaisalmer Military Station. A whopping 4500 meters of hand-spun, hand-woven Khadi cotton bunting has been used in making the flag which covers a total area of 33, 750 square feet.

The Ashok Chakra in the flag measures a diameter of 30 feet. It weighs approximately 1,400 kg. Manufactured by Khadi Dyers and Printers, the flag is a “befitting tribute to the Indian heritage” as it is made of hundred per cent Khadi material, the Army said in an official statement.

The hoisting of the flag also commemorates the 75th year of India`s independence being celebrated as `Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav`. GOC 12 RAPID unveiled the national flag amidst select dignitaries, who were amongst those present.

The `Monumental National Flag` has been prominently displayed and is clearly visible from a distance of several kilometers. Army said that this monumental flag showcases the “pride and aspiration of people of our country with an aim to knit all citizens in support of glory and spirit of nationalism.”

The flag hoisting was followed by national anthem and military band display. This initiative of Army to inculcate patriotic fervor amongst citizens in the border region is being widely appreciated.

According to the Ministry of micro, small and medium enterprises, this is the fifth public display of the national flag since its unveiling in Leh on October 2, 2021. It was, later on, displayed at Hindon Airbase on the occasion of Air Force Day on October 8, 2021 and at the Red Fort on October 21, 2021, that marked the completion of 100 crore COVID-19 vaccinations in India.

On December 4, 2021, the national flag was displayed at the Naval Dockyard near Gateway of India in Mumbai to celebrate Navy Day.

Dr Jitendra hosts lunch for J&K Republic Day Tableau team

Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) Science & Technology; Minister of State (Independent Charge) Earth Sciences; MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh hosted a lunch for the Jammu & Kashmir Tableau team members who had performed in the Republic Day celebrations at Rajpath in the national capital.
 
The team of artists, along with choreographers and musicians, have also been given an appointment to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday.
 
The members of the team expressed their overwhelming joy at the support and encouragement offered by Dr Jitendra Singh and also the hospitality was given by him. They said, this was the first-of-its-kind experience they had gone through and they were absolutely excited about it.
 
Pertinent to mention that, unlike on several earlier occasions, this was a rare Republic Day function at Rajpath, New Delhi in which the Jammu & Kashmir Tableau was primarily dominated by culture and art of the Jammu region and the face of the Tableau displayed Mata Vaishno Devi Bhawan along with other monumental projects like world’s highest Rail Bridge in Reasi and institutions like AIIMS, IIT and IIM, which have come up in the region during the recent years under the Modi Government. The background music and lyrics were also based on Jammu’s popular folk songs, “Sadha-e-Jammu”, “Sadhi Bakhri Pehchan”.
 
Under Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Dr Jitendra Singh said, in the last nearly eight years, a conscious effort has been made to provide equitable development and equitable attention to every region of Jammu & Kashmir. This has ignited confidence and self-esteem in every section of society and every region, he said.
 
Complimenting the members of the team for their distinguished performance, Dr Jitendra Singh said, he would like the people back home to understand the amount of effort, hard work and focussed preparation for several months, which had been put in for this performance. He also appreciated the perseverance and difficult competitive trial through which the team members had gone through forgetting their Tableau included in the Republic Day programme at the national level.
 
Dr Jitendra Singh said, very few people are aware that entry of any State or UT Tableau in a Republic Day programme at the national level has to go through different stages of competition and trial, and many States and UTs get excluded in the process and lose the opportunity to be included in the Republic Day programme. For this, he also complimented the hard work put in by the officials of the Department of Culture and consistent support rendered to them by the freelance groups engaged by them.
 
Dr Jitendra Singh had a detailed interaction with each of the members of the team individually and said they were the Cultural Ambassadors of the region. He assured each one of them of every possible support for the upgradation of their skill and performance.
