And I’m proud to be a Indian,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.
First of all……A very Happy Independence Day. Its the 60th year of Indian Independence Celebration day. I just wanted to scribble here some of the defining moments mainly that happens on Independence Day. These defining moments are not those that are getting campaigned by CNN-IBC news Channel.
When we were in schools, we use to get things ready for celebration before 2-3 days of Independence Day .Having white ribbons ready for both the wrists, getting washed the white canvas shoes, asking mom to wash our white clothes to make it white. Names of those students are listed before itself, who are going to give speech on the intended occasion. This will always be a real fun… students will be in full josh giving their names for speech, but what to do after that??? Ask our elders to prepare some speech content either on Subhash Chandra Bose, Mahatma Gandhi or any famous freedom fighters. Then start gutting it all the time, whole the day. Querying the teacher whether we can carry the chit and read it there?? or we have to deliver the speech instantly?? The preparation phase of the speech makes any other activities at home completely joyless.
