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:

1. ENVIRONMENT RICH WITH DIFFERENT FLAVORS:

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.

2. LAND WITH EMOTIONS:

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’.”

3. YOUR LIFESTYLE, YOUR CHOICE:

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.

4. BEST TELECOM MARKET:

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.

5. MEDIA, THE FOURTH PILLAR:

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.

6. THE AMAZING BOLLYWOOD:

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.

7. NATIONAL RURAL EMPLOYMENT GUARANTEE ACT OR NREGA:

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

8. SECULARISM:

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.

9. MOUTH-WATERING CUISINE:

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.

10. INDIAN WEDDING:

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.

Independent India Turning 64: Are we Really Independent?

Independence Day- the day when British left the golden bird free from their rule. But the bird was left looted, harassed, with the slightest of hope to survive. Then followed a long fight for the survival of golden bird. 64 years have passed and the country is still ‘developing’. The whole world says and even we believe that we are the citizens of an independent country. But a question always keep on hovering in my mind, the answer to which I never found out. You also give it a try. Is India really free? Are we not bound by so many handcuffs of ever growing poverty, illiteracy, unemployment, crimes, men-women inequality, limited technology and the worst of all which potentiate other bounding forces too- Corruption?

Shocked seeing the figure?? Don’t be because there is still a large figure behind the scene which the CBI has failed to suspect.

Angrez chale gaye par inhe chod gye”- the best phrase that can describe our corrupt politicians and high commanding officers. And why only blame these famous names. Even an ordinary man is giving them a tough competition- Wrong ways to save income tax, Under table income, and what not.  Fighting with any outsider is easy but how to fight with someone amongst ourselves. How to punish a crow from within a group of parrots? And what adds to the tragedy is that everyone is inside this dirty cave of corruption. Those who are in the light of honesty and truthfulness don’t want to make an initiative to clean this dirt.

A grand salute to those great leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Swami Vivekanand, Lal Bahadur Shastri, Bhagat Singh who broke a revolt against British and drove them back to their home. Today again we need such leaders to drive corruption out of this beautiful country. Then we all will proudly say that “Yes!! We are the citizens of an independent country which flies unbound in the sky of glory and success”.

Happy Independence Day to all from Udaipur Blog!! Let us vow to make our country a free bird again.

Jai Hind!!
