Kalaghatgi, a nondescript village in the Dharwad district in Karnataka, plans to celebrate the independence day in a huge manner literally when over 50,000 people will carry a 9-kilometre-long and 9-feet wide tricolour to celebrate India's 75th Independence Day Monday.
This is also an attempt to create a world record.
This initiative is led by former Congress MLA Santhosh Lad, a philanthropist and president of the Santhosh Lad Foundation.
On August 15, 2021, Santhosh Lad Foundation made it to the India Book of Records by carrying a 2000 meter (2km) long 9 feet wide tricolour in a rally with 8,000 people. And now the attempt just got bigger.
The organisers have recruited people from all walks of life- young, old, women and children – to hold the flag on the historic occasion as India completes 75 years as an independent nation.
