Since you are far older than 67, my dear India/Bharat/Hindustan, I am not going to wish you an ‘English’ happy independence day. Your culture, heritage, language date back to the beginning of civilised time itself. We are a land where the only surviving ancient religion, or rather, a way of life, is still practised and celebrated in the visual arts and music. What we should commemorate today is not our independence, but that fact that we have survived thousands of years and continue to enrich the world. Proud to be an Indian today and everyday! Jai Hind!
