Happy Independence Day

Today, the 15th of August is the Independence Day of India. On this day in 1947 our nation got independence from Great Britain. On the stroke of midnight Nehruji said,

"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..... We end today a period of ill fortune, and India discovers herself again."

Its been 63 years when we got independence.
Saluting all the freedom fighters because of whom we are seeing this day.....

Jai Hind !!!
Bharat Mata Ki Jai...
