                             ON THE DAY OF INDEPENDENCE

On August 15th, 2011 India celebrates her 64th Independence Day.  It is a great day of celebration for all the Indians living at home and abroad.   People from all walks of life get together in hoisting the Indian national flag in their schools, colleges, Universities, and at different place of work.  Everyone with great unity pledge their unyielding support and patriotism to their homeland.  

In New Delhi, where the main event takes place with much fanfare, is a sight to behold.  The Prime Minister of India, along with his cabinet members, opposition leaders, chiefs-of-staff, world leaders, diplomats, and other prominent citizens, hoists the national flag at Red Fort and delivers speech to all the citizens of India.  People in rapt attention listen to their Prime Minister and applaud the various achievements of India over the years.  It is in this solemn speech to the nation, the Prime Minister outlines the future plans for India.  After that, the leader of the nation pays respects to the martyrs who laid their lives for freedom, especially to Mahatma Gandhi, the father of our nation.

The day is filled with cultural programs, plays enacting freedom struggle, speeches in honor of the fallen leaders, and children, young people and senior citizens alike, sing songs of praise and honor to India. The day ends with a big bam bam!

Long live India!
