Flag hoisting was done at 6.45 am. by Pujya Swamiji and people at large attended on line. After the national anthem and patriotic songs, Revered Swamiji gave a patriotic speech. In his speech,  Swamiji remembered all who fought & gave scarifies for our Nation's freedom, starting from 320 B.C. King Puru, King Chandra Gupta Maurya, His mentor scholar Chanakya, then Maharana Pratap, Chhatrapati Shivaji, Rani Laxmibai of Jhansi, and finally just in last century, Shahid Bhagat Singh, Guru Govind Singh and father of the nation Mahatma Gandhiji. He continued, "they lived, they breathed, they fought and survived only for the freedom of India from Mogal kingdom and British ruling. We should be loyal & faithful to our nation. Never say that I am from Gujarat, Maharashtra or Bengal. Always feel and proclaim that I am a proud Indian. It was a great struggle of Sri Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel to unite India. A century before, Chanakya, Puru, and Chandra Gupta also dedicated their lives for the mission to Unite India. Talking about our National flag colors and what it represent Swamiji said that the top is orange (color of renunciation ), the middle one is white (color for peace, harmony, mutual love, and harmony ), and below is green asking for protection of ecology. Plant trees. Save Woods, rivers, mountains and keep as well preserve the beautiful world for the forthcoming generations."
