To connect and to bring the youth and people of the country at one platform, Badhe Chalo movement will feature Flash Dances across 75 cities, where dancers will perform on a specially created ‘Youth Anthem’. Through these Flash Dances the Ministry of Culture aims at spreading the message and spirit of the Amrit Mahotsav in an entertaining and enthusiastic manner.
