Mother India has completed her 63rd year and today stepped into 64th. She has been giving us everything needed for survival - food, shelter, peace and so on. It is our duty to remember the martyrs who shed blood for Free India. Here are some pictures of the First Independence day celebrations.

"FREE INDIA IS BORN" these were the Hindu headlines on August 15, 1947. It is good to see them again in today's newspaper. Hats off to The Hindu.
Happy Independence Day, I love my India, Jai Hind....:)
