Independence Day

In Uncategorized on August 15, 2009 by Sukrit

Hi

First of all wishing everyone a very Happy Independence Day.

It is that day of the year where we Indians suddenly develop a zealous love for the country only to be extinguished in a matter of days. It is sad that most Indians care very little about their country today. We all revel in the work Of  “western revolutionaries “- everyone knows about the Kennedys, Churchills etc. but very few have any idea about Mahatma Gandhi, Jawahar lal Nehru and others.

We prefer to read the mighty Shakespeare but it is unfaishonable to read Nehru’s Discovery Of India. It is for this reason i attach a short documentary on the life of Mahatma Gandhi or “Bapu” as we lovingly refer to him .I hope this inspires some us (myself included) to care for our country and respect the sacrifices of the founding fathers ; to whom we owe our present comfort.
