Aug 15th

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, when an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance….. We end today a period of ill fortune, and India discovers herself again.
~~This is the famous part of the speech given by our first Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru.
We are celebrating today India's 62nd Independence year!
Happy Independence Day to all Indians!
Jai Hind!

Happy independence day, Veens. I can always remember because it's the day after my birthday--and also from reading Midnight's Children by Rushdie.

By the way, I LOVE the new look of your blog!
