  2. I think India has come a long way in the 70 years. Not bad compared to some of the nations around the globe.

    1. Indeed, but we still have to root out corruption, bribery and minority favoritism.

  5. Well, this is horribly past the time of your celebration, but... Happy Independence Day! Any day when people gained freedom is one I celebrate!!!

  6. Congratulations on celebrating your Independence. Ideally, all humanity should be free to choose while having access to decent healthcare, adequate housing, sustenance and education. Unfortunately, the world is far from achieving any of these.
