We all still carry the same enthusiasm and pride in being Indian and do not hesitate to express our love for the country.

In this article, we are listing some of the amazing new ways to express your love for India.

No, we are not talking about social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and others that have been our go-to-platforms to express our thoughts and opinions. During the special events or festivals like not only individuals but many groups, brands and others put in special efforts to create content such as an emotional video ad or similar. If the content by the brand hits the right chord among the social media users, as a result, users merge their feelings and wish with the brand's content to wish others. However, the beauty of social media is that it is ever-evolving and with each passing year, we are exposed to platforms that keep changing the way we express and use social platforms.

Live stream the Independence Day Celebrations

Live streaming videos have been taking over the social media platform and globally, a significant number of internet users watch live-streamed videos basis their interest. This concept owes its popularity to its simple use of creating the desired video.
