There will be three-day celebrations in the national capital to mark India’s 69th Independence Day with bands performing and cultural programmes taking place.

The “Swaraj Parv” will begin on the eve of August 15, with tributes being paid to martyrs by Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung.

“The government of Delhi has decided to celebrate this Independence Day with the people. The Swaraj Parv will be celebrated at Delhi’s Central Park in Connaught Place,” said Delhi Tourism Minister Kapil Mishra.

A total of 12 contemporary music bands will perform at the Central Park in Connaught Place on August 15. Children living in slums will also perform. Qawwali performances, musical drama and poetry meet will also be featured in the carnival.

The festival will end with a tribute to former late president A.P.J. Abdul Kalam with an evening of Urdu poetry titled “Shaam-e-Kalaam”.

“This is also a new beginning to make Delhi as a hub of art and culture. More such big events will be held in Delhi,” said Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

“No invitation cards would be required to attend these programmes”, he said.
