As the National Independence Day approaches, the patriotic feeling within us starts arousing. There are various points that makes us feel proud of being born in India. Here are the ten things that makes me proud being an Indian:


India’s environment is rich with many different flavours. Beautiful Mountains, Graceful Rivers, Aggressive Desert and Dangerous Wildlife to name a few. The world praises its natural beauty and that’s the reason tourism in India is the largest service industry with the contributions of 8.78% of the total employment in the country.


Being an Indian the emotional bonding are much more. India is rich with emotion filled moments; rather a speech by a politician, a scold by a teacher or care by a mother. A feeling at home on Sunday or daily workload at office, No water supply one day or unclean roads, List is endless. We Indians are no doubt rich with variety of emotions. “Tabhi toh Sochte hai ‘Dil Se’ karte hai “Dil se’.”


India have a flavour of the amazing diversified culture from all over the world. The Indian culture has been rigid and that’s why it’s surviving with pride in Modern era. An Indian Family is rich with every kind of people, A Grandfather with Dhoti-Kurta, a father with formal and a grandson following latest trends.


India is the fastest Growing telecom market in the world and has the lowest call rates on earth. So here the connectivity is better than many other developed countries of the world. Indian Telecom analysis (2008-2012) says that Indian telecom industry has undergone a tremendous change during the past few years.


India has the largest number of news channel in the world and largest newspaper market in the world. Our Free Media is a largely asset and the greatest achievement for our country. Media serves as the fourth pillar or like a family member to us. From the local issue like a chain snatching to the national issue like Lokpal bill or international updates of Olympics, our media is always with us.


Bollywood normally termed as Hindi Cinema with about 400 films every year is the largest centre of film production in the world. We Indians are like in Love with Movies. Fourteen Million Indians go for a movie almost daily. Although, movies made in America have edged into India and American and British theatres showing Bollywood Movies on a more and more frequent basis. Indian Movies are day by day becoming more and more famous around the world.


The Indian Job Guarantee Scheme came into existence on August 25, 2005 is the largest ever-public employment scheme visualized till date.


India has been declared a secular state by its own constitution. Here we can see different religions and castes like no other place in the world. Together locating the temples and mosques. A friends group is rich with different castes and religions, which proves us how the cultures and castes of India diversify.


Indian cuisine is rich with wide variety of regional natives to India. This cuisine varies because of soil types, climates, occupations and influenced by cultural values and religion. Our Spices, vegetables and fruits are rich with mouth-watering tastes and it’s also the fragrance which creates magic. The variety is immense, colourful, aromatic and inexpensive even at top rated hotels. No wonder, it’s the third most popular cuisine in the world and nor it will be surprising when it becomes the first.


In India, there is no greater event in a family than a wedding. Wedding in India are beautifully celebrated like nowhere in the world. We dance; we sing and celebrate it like a national festival. It symbolizes our tradition, our culture and heritage. They extend to a week celebration and filled with emotions, glamour and glazes. Various events bring Chuckle and laughter while some other makes we cry. They vary from region to region because of our diversified traditions. Now this has set a trend in foreign countries too to marry in royal way like Indians do.

      the air we breath is worst in india, indian air has the worst AQI in the whole world! Milk produced in india is the most adulterated milk. 75 % of milk is adulterated in india in some or the other way! many states even sell synthetic milk in india.food survey found that detergent is the most common thing added in milk in uttar pradesh and many other states, now think what happens when children drink it!
      the pesticides which are used in india are so harmful that they are banned in all over the world except india and pakistan obviously! these go in our stomach daily with foods we eat.
      the vegetables are grown with oxytocin harmonal injections in more than half of the country! and the govt. is doing nothing to stop this ridiculous thing.
      these are rthe actual things which we need! we need quality of life
      !atleast we need pure food not poison! the things stated above are of no use…any country can have good cuisines, good culture!god fulms blah blah!

      1. @sunny, obviously there are going to be negatives where there are positive. So why not cherish the positive ones and work towards the betterment of the nation instead of sulking over the negatives? A positive attitude is very essential. 🙂

      2. but sunny u cant blame ur country for d above reasons….ya d govt can be blamed but even we need to put our efforts for d betterment of our country….n watever d beatiful india is worth being proud of….

      3. With every good thing comes a bad thing but i look the brighter side. Not like your. This is my motherland and i will do ANYTHING for it. There gonna be a day when this all going change. There is a saying ” if you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem” and by your reply you look like the part of the problem so change your self. And last thing I AM PROUD TO BE AN INDIAN

  3. Care for betterment, NOT proud!


    Still the land of cheaters, exploits and arrogance. India can do much better without corrupt officials, selfish politicians and business organizations who play with people’s feelings and money for their own benefits approaching the citizens with self-centerdness. Of course there are good things too, but the ignorance and bad nature is still overflowing in abundance.
    Love for the country and working for its welfare is different from ignoring the the factors slowing down its progress and blindly declaring to be proud.

  4. These are just some of the things. The world owes a lot to the Indians. I personally am half Indian and half Indonesian and I feel really honored to be a part of these wonderful Asian countries. It might be true that we have a lot of corruption and stuff but cherish and enjoy the positive things.
