The Federation of Indian Associations (FIA) established two Guinness World Records as part of the “Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav” celebrations in New York: the largest ensemble of the musical instrument Damru and the most simultaneous flying of various flags.
To mark the completion of 75 years of Indian Independence, which Prime Minister Narender Modi designated as “Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav” – the celebration of enduring freedom – Indian expatriates attempted the records.
Kenny Desai, president of the FIA, praised PM Modi’s efforts and vision. He added that FIA made an effort to contribute by attempting the records and shining a light on their motherland in their own country.
The records are dedicated to the world community, according to FIA chairman Ankur Vaidya, who also thanked the community for its support, without which the feat would not have been possible.
Mr. Desai added that this accomplishment is a tribute to the unsung heroes of the freedom struggle and that FIA has made India proud.
Event coordinator and FIA secretary for the attempts Since the logistics were a significant challenge in and of themselves, Pravin Bansal stated that the endeavour required enormous efforts and that the entire FIA volunteer team had been working day and night for the past few months.
Early in the morning, more than 1,500 volunteers who had signed up for the event arrived, and there was a patriotic fervour in the air.
‘Azadi Ka Amrut Mahotsav’ was a series of events organised by the central government to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of Independence.
