Best wishes of the Day

Wishing all my visitors a very happy Independence Day! India is celebrating its 60th Independence day today - August 15, 2006.

India got independence from its earlier rulers - Britain - at the stroke of midnight on 15 August 1947.

At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance.

-Quoted from the famous Tryst with Destiny speech made by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the first prime minister of Independent India at the stroke of midnight on the 15th of August 1947.

Wishing India all the best for its future. This Independence day is very special since it is just a month since there was a terrifying attack on the commercial capital of the country - Mumbai!!!
