60th Independence Day of my country coming up. I’ve lived through 22 . This one..it somehow feels special. Its only symbolic, but still, sometimes symbols are what people need.
Millions of people fought for freeing the country, nobody knows how many people fought, died, were tortured, imprisoned.
1000s of soldiers died and undergo great hardships for perserving that freedom.
My heart-felt thanks to all of them
India is slowly but steadily claiming her rightful place. Inspite of all the challanges, we are making good progress.
I feel happy, optimistic and proud. :)
