Dainik Bhaskar Group’s latest innovative campaign ‘Ek Salaam, Desh Ke Naam’, has broken the world record of ‘Maximum People Saluting on a Digital Platform’. This campaign is particularly significant, as it honours the spirit of nationalism, patriotism, and oneness as an Indian, amidst different cultures, religions, and languages and commemorates India’s 72nd Republic Day celebrations.
