Prabhat Pheri

India celebrates her Independence Day on 15th August every year. The day is being celebrated since India won her freedom from the foreign rule on 15th August 1947 and became a sovereign nation. This privilege is given to us by the great leaders of this nation, who thought for the nation more than their personal lives and fought for the country.

Keeping 68th Independence Day in mind, NSS IIT Roorkee organised the event of Prabhat Pheri. Students had to walk around the campus enjoying the 68th Independence Day celebration and bringing awareness among people about few latest issues by some beautiful songs.

In morning sharp at 6 A.M. all the 9 groups of NSS had joined at Mandi cell where all had to commence the Prabhat Pheri. A large crowd turned up. Everyone was excited as it was the time to show dedication towards the country and nobody was feeling sleepy early at 6. Many students had posters and banners of Independence Day. Everyone assembled in 3 lines and after practising few songs of patriotism, the walk started. Students went on, shouting "Jai Hind, Jai Bharat", " Vande Mataram". 

They also followed the lines of song sung by the speaker. They moved to LBS ground and from there they took a turn to the Hostel Complex for Boys. Even they tried to wake up their hostel-mates by shouting “Inquilab Zindabad”, who hadn’t attended this event.

 Then they moved to convocation hall but the voice never got fainted. Infact the noise intensity kept on increasing showing their interest towards the event and finally they reached MGCL where this event came to a successful end.

This Prabhat Pheri has brought immense happiness to all students and prompted a feeling of patriotism among them. Surely next year everyone will be waiting for this event.
