The day of a patriotic ME

Posted by shiwuz on August 15, 2008

Its not everyday that I take all my time to show my patriotism… but today, on our Independence day, that sleeping part of me, generally wakes up wide and tells me how I am so indifferent to it, blames me for sleeping all the year long, and waiting for this one day to do something, say something or write something!

And I bet that is not just me, its almost the entire Indian Youth! And to an extent its a shame! Do we really need a day to realize our duties towards our country?

Well anyways, the last thing I want to do is let this opportunity pass, and before that would happen… I figured I would express, how proud it makes me feel, every time I happen to say, I AM AN INDIAN!!

AJ and I were up late last night finding pictures that would describe my dear motherland the best, we got a few but any number would never be enough!
Though no picture could ever speak, some of these here tell stories, stories that you would narrate to yourself, stories that you live everyday, stories that you believe in, and all these are – stories about INDIA…

Also, I am embedding a video here, which again reminds me of the national integrity that we always talk about. As a small reminder to everyone who is missing the point…

“United we stood and we will stand, Divided we fell and we will fall!”

HAIL the the NATION who has given a richness of heart to all those who touched her sand…

(Its the cruelty of destiny that today I am away from India, but I guess it was necessary too, to make me realize HER worth!)

Vande Mataram!

    Don’t feel sad that you’re away, feel proud that you’re India’s ambassador abroad! You have the unique opportunity to spread India’s glorious tales to all those unfortunate westerners! šŸ˜€
    Jai Hind!
    Wonderful post, and I wish you a happy independence day! šŸ˜€
    Btw, that video is such an amazing one! Every time I listen to that song, there’s a warm fuzzy feeling of pride inside me! šŸ™‚

    As rightly said by Nikhil above, u r an Ambassador of India in U.S. And you can proudly say USAers that this is the country u belong to. Sorry for writing the comments so late. Vande Matram.

    Dear daddy, like I said, it feels prideful to have me addressed such, and I will take the pride gracefully!

    And its never too late…

    Vande Mataram!
