Indian Independence Day - Idea Round up!!!

Here is a round up of ideas I found on the web which I would love to try with Putti.
Independence Day of India is celebrated on Fifteenth of August to commemorate its independence from British rule in 1947. The day is a national holiday in India. All over the country, flag-hoisting ceremonies are conducted. The main event takes place in New Delhi, the capital city of India, where the Prime Minister hoists the national flag at the Red Fort

The national flag of India is a horizontal rectangular tricolour of saffronwhite and green; with the Ashoka Chakra, a 24-spoke wheel, in navy blue at its centre.  सत्यमेव जयते Satyameva Jayate (sanskrit) meaning Truth alone triumphs is our National mottoLearn more about National symbols of India here.
