Have you been in India on Independence Day, 15 August? It is a most joyful and optimistic day, in a country which has many joyful and optimistic celebrations.
India proudly celebrates Independence Day to cherish the idea of oneness and remember the sacrifices that freedom fighters made during their struggle against the British empire.
What really hits me about this day is the feeling people have about the glory of India’s struggle. It is a kind of mindset that “if we can do this, then anything is possible”.
Well done India – have a great celebration.
