India Shining?

This is one sight you can see on the roads every Independence Day and Republic Day in Mumbai. With all the political, economical and cultural turmoil that our tolerant country is going through, how long will it take for our country to let go of petty issues and put our best foot forward? I hope that one day the nation will shine, and I will live to see the day!

  13. […] India adopted the Constitution on 26th January, 1950, and we celebrate that day as the Republic Day with much fanfare. The Constitution declares India to be a sovereign, socialist, secular, democratic republic that promises its citizens justice, equality, and liberty along with promoting brotherhood among them. The annual parade at Delhi is a show of how potent our armed forces are, and the President tells us about the progress of the nation. But as Indians, do we feel equality, security and a sense of belonging? Politics aside, as the young breed of the nation struggles to come to terms with adult grief and cultural shocks, here is hoping that we leave the world a more tolerant place to be in for the kids who will follow our footsteps. Jai Hind! […]
