Ever since 1947, August 15 has been recognized as a national holiday within India called Independence Day, traditionally commemorated by the Prime Minister raising the flag and giving an address to the nation and anyone else tuning in to the broadcasts. For many in the modern era, India Independence Day is a time to reflect on the country's rich history and what it can become going forward — self-reliant, self-supporting, and self-sufficient. Though not recognized as an official holiday outside the country, Indians across the world celebrate the occasion each year in their own way with several nations even joining in with things like light shows and announcements of recognition for the special day.
As India celebrated its 74th Independence Day, the Empire State Building in New York, Burj Khalifa in Dubai, and the Niagara Falls in Canada were lit up in the colours of the Indian national flag.
If you're hoping to get in on the festivities this year, there's no better way to do that than in one of India's many languages. Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Telugu, Tamil and 17 others are all officially recognized within India's Constitution, all with their own unique flair. But you don't know any of those, you might say. That's not a problem if you use a translation service like Cuttingedge Translation Services.
Bridging the Gap

While many Indians do speak English, being able to communicate with others in their native tongue is a wholly different experience. Whether it's for business or personal reasons, finding new means of communicating with others is a huge benefit to connecting with others. You'll likely see new sides to people you didn't know existed previously, not to mention feel the appreciation of someone acknowledging you'd like to celebrate an important day in their own language.
