To witness and become proudly associated with such feelings is what just makes you dumbstruck. I am out of words to express it. Well I am not narrating any suspense story and I am in full mood to provide you with the curtain raiser of what I am talking about?
Well guys I am talking about hoisting of our national flag. So, most of you must be thinking what’s new about it? The new part is that recently on 7th August 2010 our university i.e. O.P. Jindal Global University, Sonipat has become the proud owner of India’s tallest National Flag with the flag post being approx. 207ft high. The hoisting of such a huge flag by maintaining its dignity was really a tough work which was carried out very smoothly. It was hoisted by Mrs. Savitri Jindal. Even the wind came out to help in hoisting of the symbol of the world’s largest democracy. The journey of the flag to the top of the flag post was marked with the national anthem and the whole thing was just phenomenal. The feeling of just standing near to such a huge symbol of our patriotism was just inexpressible. The proper lighting arrangements made it look even more beautiful during the night time. I was missing my camera at this very moment and will soon upload the original photo. Any one if gets some time; do visit our campus especially during the night time to experience this splendid beauty of our flag. Well I take this opportunity to thank our chancellor Mr. Naveen Jindal because of whose efforts it would not have been possible for any Indian to show his passionate love for his/her country in this form. Kudos to you sir!

As promised here is the photo of one of the  tallest flag pole in Asia along with the tricolour. Photography by Ankur Saraswat.


  1. good article....
    Mr nitish actually there is lot of fight between Indian Govt & Mr Jindal to get orders for this along with the usage of National Flag by Every India...
    i would also like Thank Mr Jindal.

  2. I can imagine the sense of pride you all felt at the raising of your flag during this special event. Congratulations to India. May your country prosper in its democracy and be a nation of peace and success. I have so many dear Indian friends who are very special to me -from an American ally.

  3. @RNSANE Thanks a lot for your support and apologizes for replying that late. Yes it was a truly mesmerizing moment for me. Everyday going to class when I see the flag I become speechless

  4. @cherub I Appreciate Yours Efforts. However You have got your facts all wrong. its not the tallest flagpole in asia. the tallest flagpole is in azerbaijan, central asia. its 163m high.its infact the tallest in the world. however i have a question for you. what do you mean by the "biggest" flagpole???.

  5. i would appreciate you for pointing out the typo which i did. As you might have noticed i did not use biggest in the whole write up so thanks for that.
    well if you see i have posted this in august and Azerbaijan got this status largely since September 2010 when the flag was hoisted on it so I was not aware about that till that time. Also, these records can be broken on any day of the year.Tomorrow it could be someone else.what i wanted to portray was just a feeling of happiness that I had.

    Thanks for giving a read and looking forward to such valuable comments from you further too.
