On the 75th Independence Day, brands are leaving no stone unturned to touch the patriotic chord of consumers and make a connection with them. While every milestone related to the country’s progress is remarkable, this time it’s extra special as the whole nation seems to be in sync with the Centre’s proposal to celebrate it as Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav. Understanding the public sentiment, brands are gearing up to reach their audience with campaigns which have patriotism and social upliftment as their themes.

From celebrating financial independence to raising social issues and uniting to help people in need, the Independence Day communications of brands are full of social messages that also celebrate our nation’s diversity. brings a list of a few striking campaigns for its readers:

1 CashKaro: #Bachat Ki Azaadi

CashKaro, the cashback and coupons site, has launched the ‘Bachat Ki Azaadi’ campaign that talks about the inherent behaviour of bargaining at local shops, from sabzi waalas to kaam waalis.

But there’s another side to the coin, the 10 to 20 rupees that people try to save, however, mean much more to their beloved local vendors than to them. CashKaro hopes to connect with and educate Indians about the other side through this campaign.

2 JSW Paints: #ThinkBeautiful

JSW Paints has come up with a film ‘Think Beautiful’ which takes the audience out of the four walls of a home into neighbourhoods. It takes a leap and makes a larger point, the brand seems to say real beauty is in our thoughts. And the beauty shows in the way a person, a home, a community and a nation behave.

Playing off a relatable event, the film finds an ingenious twist. One that suits the occasion of India’s 75th Independence Day and puts a smile the audience’s face.

3 Muthoot Finance: #HarGharTiranga

Muthoot Finance will hoist the national flag across all its 5500+ branches in the country in line with the “Har Ghar Tiranga” campaign from August 13 to 15.
