Salute to a country which knows the value of freedom. Salute to a country which has its moral roots etched in non-violence and secularism. Salute to a country which has never resolved to violence in its entire history.
India got its freedom after a long strenous fight for independence that spanned over 90 years. As a colony, India suffered greatly at the tyrant rule; All to recover in such less time and emerge as a nation which is the fastest growing economy in the world.
Hats off to the country which has given birth to heroes in every field. I love my country and I will live and if needed, die for it!
Happy Independence Day to all! 🙂 Celebrating freedom – the feeling that no one can take from you!

Proud to be an Indian!
Happy Independence Day to you, Manoj. Hope it was a good day all around for you.
Long live mother India! Countries and boundaries are only imaginary lines drawn on a map. Don’t let them become your life-lines. I have read this line somewhere. But not sure where. But I guess it gives the reason why wars are fought.
Yeah. It was good. 🙂 We also had a festival the same day – Varamahalakshmi Vrata. So, enjoyed lots of delicacies! 😀
Happy 62nd Year of Independence. 🙂
90 yrs? You are counting only Angrez man!!
150 yrs!!! Thats it!! 😦
90 years from the official First War of Indian Independence. 🙂 (1857 – The Sepoy Mutiny)
Other than that, we’ll have tolerated the tyranny of a lot of invaders before as well. 😦
