The Har Ghar Jhanda Campaign is being organized to make the Amrit Mahotsav of India’s independence memorable. This year on Independence Day, Tricolors made by the women in Chhattisgarh’s women's self-help groups will be hoisted under the Har Ghar Jhanda campaign. To make this campaign a success, the women belonging to the state’s self-help groups are making the tricolors while keeping the spirit of national service alive, and are also becoming economically empowered. Women of the Parvati Self-help Group in the Dantewada district are preparing tricolors. These women view the work of making tricolors not as a mere task but as a service to the nation.
Mrs. Yamini Sahu of the women's self-help group in Mahasamund district’s Komakhan said that she has just received an order to make 1500 flags, and more orders are expected. She added while expressing her happiness that she is proud of the fact that the flags made by the women in her group will be hoisted in the homes and Government offices of the district. While the work of making flags is awakening the spirit of patriotism, on one hand, it is also providing employment to women on the other. The responsibility to make the national flags has been given to women's self-help groups.
