After a Decade-long Hiatus, Himachal Day Celebrations to be Resumed on April 16 at ICC Milpitas, California
Himachal Day is observed every year on 15 April in Himachal Pradesh, which came into existence on that day in 1948 when. Post-Independence, 28 minor princely states were integrated into one province of Himachal Pradesh.
It is a progressive state with a literacy rate of 82.80%. It comprises 12 districts, holds the 18th rank area-wise, and holds the 21st rank in population. The hilly state is almost universally electrified, with 99.5% of household electricity as of 2016.
Himachal Pradesh is home to the majestic Himalayan range, clear crystal rivers and springs, a robust economy and people who are brave and at the same time deeply spiritual! No wonder it is called Veer Bhoomi for the numerous martyrs belonging to Himachal. The sacrifice of Vikram Batra and Saurabh Kalia to name a few will never be forgotten by the entire nation. Himachal is home to thousands of ancient temples. It is a state where Gods reside.
The state’s beauty and culture attract thousands of people from all around the globe in every season. People come in throngs to this peaceful state during the winter season to see snowfall.
