Technology company Trendyworks has come out with a ‘FamilyApp’ on occasion of Independence Day through which one can experience the pride of hoisting the national flag from anywhere in the world in a single click. The application is available on Google Play Store.

The company has built flag hoisting feature in the ‘FamilyApp’, which makes it possible to sing the national anthem in 10 languages – English, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Marathi, Gujarati, Bengali, Malayalam, Kannada, and Oriya, it said in a statement. “Once you download and open the app you will see the folded National Flag on a pole. The app works on voice commands and the flag rises along the pole when the user says ‘Jai Hind’. The flag is completely hoisted when ‘Jai Hind’ is said three times.

The flag unfurls to a resounding tune of the national anthem which ends with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s triumphant call of ‘Jai Hind’,” it said. “The best part is you can take a selfie with the tricolour and share it with your friends on Whatsapp and Facebook,” the company, founded by Neeraj Jewalkar, a serial entrepreneur and an angel investor, said.
