Proud to be an Indian

Today is August 15th. 60 years ago in 1947, India gained Independence from United Kingdom which was a culmination of more than 100 years of freedom struggle. Quoting India’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru in his famous Tryst with Destiny speech, I salute to the nation.

“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. “

At 60, India is rediscovering again with it’s GDP at 10%, Per Capita Income at $734, and literacy rate at 65%. There’s a long road ahead.
