Recently I was at a mall. Since Independence Day was approaching, there was an event at the mall. On a large canvas, they were encouraging people to put their thoughts on it. Some were painting our beautiful tricolor. Some were writing messages. I painted our flag along with the word UP signifying the direction our country is headed.
I felt really proud. At the same time I felt grateful to God. I was born a free man in a free country. Felt grateful to all the people who sacrificed their lives for freedom. Many did not even see the free country they strived for.
Felt grateful to God for the beauty of this country. Our Country is truly blessed. Snow capped mountains to sun kissed beaches, flowing rivers to flower filled valleys, lush green forests to golden desert sands. Name it... India has it.
Felt grateful for the opportunities and the superb education we get in this country. I can follow my religion without threats. I can speak freely. I feel responsible for my country.
Felt grateful for the wonderful people who make up this nation. Felt grateful for the democracy i the country.
Felt grateful that I am in a country which has farms to provide all kinds of food. At the same time we have industries that can provide all the necessities.
Felt grateful to the men and women who work in various departments who strive to keep things clean, smooth and functioning.
Above all I felt grateful to the people who keep India the way it is... FREE. Those brave men and women who face the extreme conditions on borders, on rough seas and the sky. They make so many sacrifices so I do not have to make any. Also the secure feeling that the police department gives. A heartfelt salute to all these people.
