On the occasion of Independence Day, the committee members of Parsi Panchayat Complex (PPC) organized a flag hoisting event to celebrate 73 glorious years of Independence. Chief Guest Jai Prakash Thakurji (Senior M’tra BJP leader) unfurled the Indian flag as a sense of pride and patriotism filled the air with the rendition of the National Anthem sung fervently by all present. After the Chief Guest shared a few words, refreshments were served amongst productive conversations about what it meant to be independent citizens. Next, the ‘Best Dressed’ children were given prizes as chocolates were distributed to the rest.
