Amitabh Bachchan, the biggest celebrity in Bollywood, recently explained on his most recent blog why he began hoisting the Tricolor at his Jalsa home. The actor talked of the sense of joy and patriotism he experienced while hoisting the Tricolour at his Allahabad house on August 15. The actor encouraged having the Tricolour in every household, posted images of himself with the flag, and explained on his blog why he began flying the Indian flag at his house. Until Member of Parliament Naveen Jindal filed a lawsuit and won the right to fly the flag, private citizens were only permitted to do so on specific days, according to Bachchan. “He won the decision in his favour and immediately I started flying our National Flag on our homes, as many who came for the meets on Sunday at the gates would have noticed on Jalsa,” Bachchan wrote.There were, of course, a number of restrictions, like when it could be raised or lowered, its size, the material it was constructed of, and the fact that it could only be purchased from one specific store in Bangalore until 2014 (it is now known as Bengaluru). There is currently a push to have it flown with pride from every home, the actor wrote on his blog. The image of a five-year-old me clutching the flag on the veranda of our modest home in Allahabad on August 15, 1947, with pride of patriotism, identity, and being mine and ours, filled with a sense of belonging.
“And since then, every occasion, the emotion that goes along with it every time it is played. One of the most, being the Eden Gardens Stadium in Kolkata and the Indo-Pak cricket match, being asked to sing it live for the start of the game.. and a 100,000,000 people that filled the arena, singing along with me.. my pride of being an Indian!! Jai Hind!! Abhishek and I were on top of our car, waving the Tricolor as we drove through the streets while shouting and screaming with the hundreds of people who had flocked to the roadways that joyous evening when India won the World Cup of Cricket.Amitabh stated that he sang a few lines for a shoot in the present “They requested that I sing a few verses of the song that is now being filmed this afternoon. I have a connection to national fervour and pride!”
