The spectacular Tiranga March was part of the day-long celebration organized by the Angika development society, the body that runs both DPS Bhagalpur and DPS Greater Ranchi.

Also, a cultural program was organized by the students to pay tributes to the heroes of India's independence movement and to celebrate the 75th Independence day.
The event was attended virtually by the central cabinet minister Ashwini Kumar Choubey (Minister of State for Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution and Environment, Forest and Climate Change), who addressed the students on occasion and delivered a patriotic speech. Bihar's Culture and Sports Minister Alok Ranjan was also present on occasion.
