Union Minister Amit Shah wished the people of Himachal Pradesh and wrote about the state’s rich heritage and natural beauty. ”… Dev Bhoomi is on the path of continuous progress and I wish all the people of the state health and happiness,” he posted on the microblogging site.
Himachal Day is celebrated on April 15 every year. Himachal Pradesh became a full-fledged state on this day. Four districts of Mandi, Chamba, Mahasu and Sirmour were integrated with over two dozen princely states, leading to the formation of Himachal Pradesh as a Union Territory in 1948. Decades later, in 1971, Himachal Pradesh became the 18th state in India with Shimla as its capital.
The word ”Himachal” is derived from two Sanskrit words, “Hima” (snow) and “Anchal” (lap). The state, situated amid valleys and hills, virtually sits in the lap of the Himalayas.
