Wishing India a happy Independence Day is like wishing a great grand mother a sweet 16 birthday. Cradling civilisation, she has been around since time immemorial, cajoling the world with her knowledge and stories, welcoming everyone into her home, nourishing her countless generations and supporting their existence with her bountiful nature. But just like the generation we are, we say a quick hello to her and get easily distracted. Take care of her, listen to her wisdom, love her faults as you do her qualities, and above all, respect her resilience.

Happy English birthday… You have aged well 🙂
