MUMBAI: Independence Day is the only event where people across the country come together to celebrate regardless of their caste, creed or religion. As the nation celebrates the 68th year of Indian independence on 15th August 2014, 92.7 BIG FM too is all set to wave the Indian tricolor high up in the sky this year! In a one of its kind initiative, 92.7 BIG FM along with its RJs – RJ Siddharth, RJ Neelesh Misra and RJ Prateek will visit the Wagah border to celebrate this occasion with the BSF Jawans to soak in the feeling of freedom, patriotism and pride.

As a part of this very special initiative, 92.7 BIG FM will connect with family and friends of the jawans before the journey; RJ Neelesh Misra will carry along their specially recorded messages and gifts to be conveyed to the jawans as a surprise from their loved ones.

The entertaining celebrations will also comprise of a LIVE storytelling event based on a true story surrounding the life of a soldier and will be hosted at the Attari border by RJ Neelesh Misra and his team. RJ Prateek, on the other hand, will travel to the Wagah border on his bike with his comrades and collect gifts and messages for the soldiers from people along the way. RJ Siddharth will be an integral part of the celebrations, interacting with the jawans and providing updates via radio.

Speaking of this initiative, Ashwin Padmanabhan, National Business Head, 92.7 BIG FM stated, “A day attributed to our nation can only be best spent with the ones who safeguard it. We are extremely delighted and honoured to execute an initiative as noble as this one. Through this initiative, we wish to make Independence Day a livelier and happier celebration for our Jawans and aim to spread this cheer throughout the country.”

Jawans, who spend most of their time training, use their spare time entertaining themselves by singing songs, narrating stories around a campfire or simply writing back to their loved ones. This Independence Day, 92.7 BIG FM along with its RJs will spend time entertaining the jawans through a host of various fun activities and interactions. With jocks like RJ Siddharth – the most popular RJ of the highly rated Breakfast Show in Mumbai, RJ Neelesh Misra – famous lyricist and host of popular show ‘Yaadon Ka Idiot Box’ and RJ Prateek who comes with the promise of Happy Hours in the lives of the people from Delhi, listeners across the country will be witness to the unique celebrations LIVE through 92.7 BIG FM all day on August 15, 2014.

While all of the 36 Hindi Speaking markets will air the day’s special LIVE from the Wagah border, 92.7 BIG FM has also developed a 360 degree marketing campaign to back this gracious initiative.
