I am Tiranga. I was born on July 22, 1947, in the Constituent Assembly on the eve of the Independence of India. When the Adhoc Committee on the flag adopted me as the National Flag of free India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru made a memorable speech and concluded by saying, "So sir, now I present to you not only the Revolution but the Flag itself".
In Fact, I own my birth to the sacrifices and blessings of all great souls, who brought freedom to India. It was a late evening of August 14, 1947, at 10:45 p.m., and the Central Half of the Council Hall, now known as the Parliament House was over-packed to its capacity.
