Parakram Diwas celebrated at Machhal Kupwara

SRINGAR: The 125th birth anniversary of iconic freedom fighter Subhas Chandra Bose, popularly known as Netaji was celebrated at Macchal with traditional zeal and enthusiasm.

Commencing this year the Central Government has decided to start the Republic Day celebrations from January 23 to include Netaji’s anniversary, which will be celebrated as Parakram Diwas’ (day of valour).

The children paid tribute to Netaji by making a life-size snow sculpture. This snow sculpture was prepared despite inclement weather and snowfall for the last 3 days. This is an apt testimony of the patriotic fervour and respect for Netaji amongst the locals. The children also took part in painting the portrait of Netaji on paper and reciting his famous freedom struggle quotes.
