It may be mentioned that the Kamyab Foundation has been organizing its awareness drive Kara Samman Tirangacha over past 6 years by picking up national flag with hands from various places and thus maintaining its dignity. The Foundation, on the particular occasions of Aug 15 and January 26 also takes care of thrown away national flags made of paper or plastic. It picks them up from public places, markets, school and college premises, streets, or even if they are lying in crumpled condition anywhere, and accords due respect to Tiranga lying in its neglected or insulting position.
