    PM Modi, EAM S Jaishankar extend greetings on 245th US Independence Day

    Every year on July 4, parades, fireworks, barbecues, fairs, picnics, carnivals, games, political speeches, and ceremonies are held to commemorate the Independence of the United States of America. The United States' legal and governmental foundation is provided by the Constitution, but the Declaration of Independence, with its beautiful affirmation that "all men are created equal," is equally adored by the American people.

    The Declaration of Independence, proclaiming the colonies' separation from Great Britain, was unanimously adopted by the Second Continental Congress on July 4, 1776. Though the American colonies declared independence on July 4, 1776, the process began two days earlier, on July 2, 1776, when the Continental Congress decided to do so. On that day, 12 of America's 13 colonies formally declared independence from British authority. Thomas Jefferson, a prominent politician and diplomat at the time who eventually became the third President of the United States (1801-09), and Benjamin Franklin, a political philosopher, were among those who declared the American colonies to be free states. 

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi greeted President Joe Biden and the American people on social media platform Twitter. PM Modi remarked in a tweet that India and the US, as vibrant democracies, share values of freedom and liberty and their strategic partnership has a truly global significance.

    Likewise, Dr S Jaishankar, the External Affairs Minister, has expressed his heartfelt greetings to the government and people of the United States on the occasion of their Independence Day. He expressed confidence in the strong alliance between India and the United States, which is built on shared values and interests, in a tweet.

    Swami Vivekananda, a spiritual leader, composed a poem titled "To the Fourth of July" to commemorate America's independence on July 4, 1898, 123 years ago. Swami Vivekananda, who was 39 at the time, died precisely four years later, on July 4, 1902, in Belur Math in West Bengal, on the same date. Swami Vivekananda composed the following poem on July 4, 1898, while “travelling with several American followers in Kashmir,” according to the Belur Math website.
