Himachal Pradesh Celebrates 72nd State Day

Himachal Pradesh celebrated 72nd Himachal Day on 15th April with gaiety and fervour. Himachal Day is celebrated to commemorate its creation.

Genesis of the Himachal Day

  • Before independence, most of the areas of Himachal Pradesh was part of Punjab state and during that time this region was divided into four different regions such as Chamba, Mandi, Shimla etc.
  • After the independence, in 1948 the state was declared as a union territory.
  • On the 15th April Chief Commission inaugurated this territory and after that this day was celebrated as ‘Himachal Day’ every year.

Later in the 1970 the union territory was declared as a separate state. On 25th January 1971, it became the 18th state of the country.

The tiny hill-state Himachal Pradesh has developed rapidly after coming into existence on April 15, 1948, following the merger of 30 princely states. Difficult geographical conditions, inaccessible areas and other complexities could not affect the courage of the people.
