Freedom Run

Hundreds of members of the Indian diaspora in the UK took part in the first ever Freedom Run to mark India’s 71st Independence Day with the one-mile journey beginning from the historic Parliament Square in London.

The runners, sporting ‘India@70′ T-shirts and waving tricolour glow sticks, kick-started a one-mile journey from the statue of Mahatma Gandhi at the historic square in the heart of the British capital to India Place at the Indian High Commission in London.

Addressing the gathering, the Indian High Commissioner to the UK, Y K Sinha said Freedom Run’ symbolises India’s fight for freedom from corruption and freedom from poverty.

The event, organised by the Indian High Commission in London, was aimed at bringing together the Indian community from across Britain to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Indian independence and is likely to become an annual feature to mark Independence Day.
