India, celebrates her 73rd Independence day today August 15th which she won in 1947 when the UK Parliament passed the Indian Independence Act 1947 transferring legislative sovereignty to the Indian Constituent Assembly.
It has been a tradition every year since then for the Indian prime minister to unfurl the Indian national flag above the Lahori Gate of the Red Fort in Delhi. Upon which, the incumbent Prime Minister gives an address to the nation. The event is broadcasted live on state owned network, the Doordarshan.
Today, the Prime Minister Narendra Damodardas Modi who is serving as the 14th and current Prime Minister of India since 2014 unfurled the national flag and delivered his 6th Independence Day speech.
Prime Minister Modi began his speech with words,”My dear fellow citizens..” and the crowds went bizarre into applause and cheers.
The strange thing about the address today, was that Mr. Modi did not have a visible microphone in front of him, nor was he wearing any fixed on him as his hands were moving freely.
People were amused if Mr. Modi had any microphone attached to his voice box that propagated his speech. Some believed it to be a miracle. But many were left confused, as the speakers were bursting with his voice.
However, to break the bubble the actual reason why no microphone was visible was because the mics were buried on the dais table that Modi used to address from. Different angles of the camera footage showed the short but multiple microphones.
The dais podium also had a teleprompter which Mr. Modi looked at multiple times during his address.
