August 15 is a memorable day in the history of India. It was on August 15, 1947, that India won her independence after a long and bitter struggle. Today, as befitting the day, there are celebrations all over the nation with the national flag being hoisted. From the ramparts of the Red Fort in New Delhi, the Prime Minister delivers his message to the nation. His speech highlights the achievements of the government during the past year and also pays tribute to freedom fighters.
India is a land of different cultures, heritages, many languages and religions. Despite the differences our India is united in its diversity. The people of this country, its beautiful cultures, its languages, the places and the good heart of the Indians makes me proud that I am born in a such country. Our mother India has been teaching her children different skills and talents such as sports, archery, defenses, music, dance, art, humanity, kindness, love, tenderness and acting, .When we have such a beautiful land to live in, then why will not our heart be filled with pride? You can travel from Kanyakumari to Himalayas as an ‘Indian’. We have Free Press, Media, Judiciary, Election Commission, C.V.C., N.H.R.C., Right to Information Act, Food Act and more and all this fascinates me making me say, I am a happy and proud citizen of India. A number of religious festivals like Dussera, Christmas, Ramzan, and important national days like Independence Day, Republic Day and Children’s Day are celebrated. Age-old traditions, customs, rituals, prayers, dresses, ornaments, dance and music forms, varieties of food items are unique features of festivals in India and attract many foreigners from different countries to visit India. A sense of awe arises within me when I sing the national anthem. Indians are said to be the second smartest in the world because of their intelligent thinking.
The land where pride begins, the land where sorrows end and smiles originate, that is India. Customs, tradition and perceptions don’t matter. The vast diversities cannot seek an end but flow into the vast sea “Unity”. Yes, the land where unity rises and discrimination sets, that’s the land — India. The strong hope and faith in the potential of the people makes me feel proud about her .Jai Hind !
I write a lot, which keeps me off the streets and out of trouble. There is always something to write about, always a new story to craft. Not writing, for me, is like trying to hold back a sneeze. Learning to write was the most powerful influence in my life. I can still remember the awe I felt when I realized I could put real words onto paper and tell out a story. From that first ‘a-ha’ moment I knew I wanted to write.
