India on Monday celebrated its 75th Independence Day. This year, the celebration was different as the government changed the country's flag code to allow the tricolour to fly both day and night and launched the 'Har Ghar Tiranga' campaign to encourage the citizens to hoist the national flag in their homes from August 13 to 15.
