It was a festive fervour all across the country in jubilation for the completion of 72 years of Independence. Be it the greetings from well-wishers, celebrity wishes or Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s fiery speech at the Red Fort, there were many moments to cherish throughout the day. However, the celebrations were not restricted to only Indians living in the country, as people of Indian origin and those having no connection to India also joined in. One such instance was when a Tanzanian joined the Independence Day celebration of the Indian community in Dar es Salaam and impressed with his act.
In a video shared by the official Twitter handle of the High Commission of India in Tanzania, one of the locals is seen participating in the celebrations. The Tanzanian is seen singing the ‘Jhanda Uncha Rahe Hamara’ patriotic song, along with another lady.
The handle captioned the video, “A local tanzanian singing a hindi patriotic song made this mornings independence day celebration very special.” (sic)
The Indian High Commission in Tanzanian also shared with the followers some of the other moments from the celebration, which included a group of school students singing and their parents and the other elders seated in the audience.
Apart this performance in Tanzanian, the renditions of the National Anthem by artists from Jammu and Kashmir and another by specially-abled children in Nagaland, ITBP Personnels crooning songs like 'Ae Watan Tere Liye', 'Maa Tujhe Salaam','Sandese Aate Hai' and children performing to 'Maa Tujhe Salaam' were some of the other highlights of Independence Day 2019.
