Vande Mataram

"At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new...India discovers herself again."
­ Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru
(on Indian Independence Day, 1947)

August 15th, 1947: India creates a history. An Independent democratic country is born with a vision to make big in Global world and prove its potential by respecting every person's right, respecting peace, spreading love and to serve the humanity.

This year India completes 61 years of independence and we have come a long way since the day one. We have progressed a lot and have proved our worth in the global front too. Yet, we have long way to go.

India has time and again proved her worth in every field be those sports, entertainment, science and technology, literature, defense, spirituality and many more.

WE still have long way to go and we still need to progress more. We have the 2nd largest population in the world yet we are growing strong in terms of education, infrastructure and economy and in other aspects too. We have almost 75% of population under the age of 35, which is a good sign for progress.

Each country has some or the other shortcomings, so do India have. It's up to us (the citizens of India) to make sure that we still follow the path of peace and respect each other's right. Lets not forget "Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Isahi, Hum Sab Hai Bhai Bhai". No matter which religion, region or caste you are from, we all are one and we respect each other. It's up to us to make the difference. It's up to us to help our society and bring smile on every face in the world.

On this occasion of our independence lets remember the sacrifice made by our Jawans. Lets realize how worthy our independence and how many have laid their lives so that we can enjoy our independence.

I am an INDIAN and I am proud to be an INDIAN.
