Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav Participation
Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav is an initiative of the Government of India to celebrate and commemorate 75 years of progressive India and the glorious history of it’s people, culture and achievements.
This Mahotsav is dedicated to the people of India who have not only been instrumental in bringing India thus far in it’s evolutionary journey but also hold within them the power and potential to enable Prime Minister Modi’s vision of activating India 2.0, fuelled by the spirit of Atmanirbhar Bharat.
Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav is an embodiment of all that is progressive about India’s socio-cultural, political and economic identity. The official journey of “Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav” commences on 12th March, 2021 which starts a 75 week countdown to our 75th anniversary of Independence and will end post a year on 15th August, 2023.
The Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav is an intensive, country wide campaign which will focus on citizen
participation, to be converted into a ‘Janandolan’, where small changes, at the local level, will add up
to significant national gains.
As the nation marks its 75th year of Independence, let’s rekindle the sense of pride in our collective identity. In this period of Amrit Kaal, let us write new patriotic songs which will reverberate with the spirit of New India. The colours of one’s art, culture, song, music must certainly be filled in Amrit Mahotsav too.
Be it adolescents or adults, love and devotion towards our motherland has always found a special corner in all our hearts. In an effort to give voice to India’s patriotic soul, every Indian between the ages of 16-45 is invited to send in their entries here.
These patriotic songs can be in the mother tongue, can be in national language, and can be written in English too. But it is essential that these creations reflect the thought of new India; inspired by the current success of the country, it should be such that fuels the country’s resolve for the future.
The competition will be held in four stages to incentivize local flavours to emerge and be declared winners and also have the chance to compete at district, state and national level.
Deshbhakti Geet’ thus selected as National Winners will be provided a national platform. The winning compositions will be taken up by some of India’s most accomplished artists at a star-studded event hosted by the renowned lyricists and famous singers.

Patriotic Lori Or Poetry
In a world that is swiftly becoming digital, this wonderful practice and our traditional loris (lullabies) also afford an opportunity to be told afresh – the same age-old stories but told in new formats or new stories told in tune with modern impulses. In order to revive this beautiful tradition and with it, preserve the local compositions for the generations to come, we are organising a Lori (Lullaby) competition for parents, guardians, and children across India.
Every Indian is invited to send in their entries here.

In these loris (lullabies) there should be reference to modern India, the vision of 21st century India and its dreams.
Participants are encouraged to submit loris (lullabies) in their mother tongue but if the participant is conversant in more than one language then they can choose their language of choice.
The competition will be held in three stages to incentivize local stories to be told and be declared winners and also have the chance to compete at state and national level.
The Lori contest will feature unique loris (lullabies) from every region across our vibrant country and the lori (lullaby’s) that stand out shall be rewarded publicly and will be provided a national audience.
