New Delhi : Union Culture Ministry is organsing Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav to celebrate 75 years of Independence and as part of it, Union Culture and Tourism Minister G K Reddy on October 26, 2021, launched the Amrit Mahotsav Podcast. This podcast series is a tribute to the persons and movements that significantly contributed to India’s freedom struggle, some of which have not found a place in the conventional storyline.
The first series, Zara Yaad Karo Qurbani, went live with an episode based on the Indian National Army (also known as the Azad Hind Fauj). New episodes will be added on a weekly basis.
As an ode to the sacrifices made, it is only befitting to salute these heroes by recollecting their stories of courage and valour as part of commemorating 75 years of India’s Independence. Disseminating these stories, the Ministry hopes to fulfil a multi-pronged purpose of sensitise the audience to the challenges and struggles faced by those who fought for country’s Independence, to instil nationalistic pride, as an inspiration for those listening, and to highlight the unsung heroes of the freedom struggle, according to a PIB release.
