Indian Masterminds Stories

As India completes 75 years of Independence from British rule, the whole country came together to celebrate 15 August this year under the theme, ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’. More than 20 crore houses hoisted the national flag and celebrations were held in every nook and corner of the country.

This year’s celebration of the 76th Independence Day in the two most prestigious institutions in the country, Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration (LBSNAA) and Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy (SVPNPA), took a different turn as two special events were organised in each institution.

CELEBRATION IN LBSNAA

Unlike every year, this time the I-Day celebrations were not only conducted inside the academy but a 75 kilometer long run was organised for the first time in which the IAS Officer Trainees of 2021 batch, faculty members, and staff led by the Director of Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration participated. The marathon was organised one day before the Independence Day.
