As part of the country's 75 years of Independence "Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav" Rajiv Gandhi University, Rono hills, Doimukh, Arunachal Pradesh join hands with the country in celebrating this auspicious occasion. The Govt. of India, New Delhi through its Ministry of Education, Ministry of Information and Broadcasting and UGC, New Delhi, has decided to launch 75 weeks long programme which started on March 12, 2021, the very same date on which in 1930 Gandhiji; the father of the nation had launch the 'Dandi March' at Champaran, Bihar.

In the inaugural session of the Webinar Prof. Kesang Degi, HOD, Department of Education welcomed the distiguished guest spekers aand participants, and outlined the purpose of the webinar. She informed the virtual gatehriing that five broad themes have been decided for this celebration. These are; (i) Freedom struggle (ii) Idea at 75, (iii) Achievements at 75, (iv) Action at 75, and (v) our Resolve at 75.

Dr. N.T. Rikam, Registrar, Rajiv Gandhi University, Rono Hills, on the occasion summerised the events of Dandi March lead by Gandhiji, that how in just three weeks times, entire nation was galvanized against the Britishers, Salt was made as the symbol of protest, and youths were called upon to eradicate them from the country. Dr. Rikam urged the coming generations to be a responsible citizen, and to inculcate sincerity, dedication and quality work habits.

Pro Vice-Chancellor Prof. Amitava Mitra, Rajiv Gandhi University, shared his words of wisdom and threw light on the freedom fighters of North- East India, and went on explaining how they contributed in the freedom struggle, even without getting much recognition thereafter in the history. He further mentioned the significance of retrospection and introspection on this occasion of 75 years of India' Independence.

He stressed on the need to retrospect on the ways India fought for freedom, and the need to honour and remember the sacrifices of the freedom fighters. He referred India's struggle as a mass struggle, and talked about the tales of struggles and sacrifices of North East India's freedom fighters which were not even mentioned in the History books. He opined that we need to introspect on what India has achieved after Independence and how it can be maintained and taken forward to new heights to include all in its fold.

Distinguished speaker of the day Group Captain (Retd) Mohonto Panging, Vayu Sena Medal, the very first person from North East India to command a Sukhoi-30MKI Squadron, presently an entrepreneur, columnist and social worker in his talk argued and lamented that even after seven decades of Independence, and looking at the current plight of the country, such as; terrorism, poverty, employment, corruption, literacy rate, anti-national activities, border issues and Jammu & Kashmir issue etc, questioned, "are we independent in true sense".

Through this question h brainstormed the minds of the participants and talked about the perception of independence to each and every individual. He uttered about the affairs of North East States, specifically Arunachal Pradesh and its related shortcomings in terms of production of goods and services in the light of economic independence.

He opined that Arunachal Pradesh is still dependent on other states despite having available resources, and emphasized on the schemes like Aatma-Nirbhar Bharat, Vocal for local for the country in general and for Arunachal Pradesh in particular, and elaborated the scope for the the youths to come forward, take part in the affairs at their helm in order to achieve these ideals and goals. He opined that N.E States require another Dandi March to convey peace and stability and youths need to lead it. He congratulated Rajiv Gandhi University for topping and being the centre for excellence in Higher education.

Distinguished guest and speaker of the day Prof. Pritish Chandra Acharya, Professor of History at Regional Institute of Education, Bhubaneshwar elaborated the legacy of Indian National Movement. He summarised the various movements that occurred between 1857-1947 and mentioned about the three main mass movements which was participated by youths and women also resulting into huge changes in the patriarchal society. He also mentioned that freedom struggle was a coordinated and collective movement wherein many sections participated and contributed to.

Prof. Saket Khushwaha, Hon'ble Vice- Chancellor, Rajiv Gandhi University, paid tribute to the martyrs and freedom fighters, and appreciated the sacrifices they made of the nation. He expressed that every individual should know the importance of celebrating this Azadi ka Amrut Mahotsav, in order to inculcate the values and essence of the beauty of democracy required for peaceful life.
