Celebrating Independence :-)

August 15th 1947 saw a new beginning for the World's largest democracy. Then Prime Minister  Pandit Jawarhar lal Nehru hoisted the Tri-coloured flag to mark Independent India's foray into self governance. Every Indian does remember that and the end of nearly 250 years of colonial rule. Despite a very bloody partition, India has come a long way. As a nation, we do have a very long way to go.

I found this video on google videos
"The newsreel announcing India's independence to US audiences on August 15, 1947 (the first part deals with Pakistan's Independence the previous day). Shows Nehru delivering his famous "Tryst with Destiny" speech to the Assembly in Delhi with Lord and Lady Mountbatten in attendance."

On the 64th Independence day celebrating 63 years of Independence means a lot. I hope the nation grows to be the best place to live and celebrate life. 

Thought id share this amazing song

I am also reminded of the King Khan's song:

Jai Hind!!
