68th Independence Day

We celebrated our 68th Independence Day today with flag hoisting, some sports competitions, variety entertainment programs and a good meal in the end! A day well spent!
Saluting my country with a heart full of gratitude to the lakhs of patriots who died fighting for our independence! Greetings to all my Indian friends and wishes for a bright future ahead for our country!

Google has a doodle on their homepage that commemorates independent India’s first postal stamp. It is in honor of India’s rich postal history.

    A very Happy Independence day to you!!

  20. What I find as an Irony, Indrani, is that for many of the new generation, it just a matter of Aug 15, where you get to hear a day of nostalgic historical songs.. The next day it is forgotten.. Even the respect for the flag.. But with an equal number who believe in it.. Makes one hopeful… Happy Independence day
