Imagine the Ideal. Make it Happen.

Independence Day

Independence Day is not just pages of history or triumph of one country over another. It is a fight for our Identity, our Promise, our Dream, our Ambitions. It is that day we remember when all this happened. However, the story only begins. There is so much to do, farther to go before we could be proud of our Independence Day!

Day of Indian Independence: 15-Aug-1947

“Long years ago we made a tryst with destiny, and now that time comes when we shall redeem our pledge, not wholly or in full measure, but very substantially. 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 new, when an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance…”

Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, First Prime Minister of Independent India

It is not about a country, nor a piece of land,
not culture nor tradition, nor an ideological stand

It is an Identity… that you and I proudly wear,
ingrained in our minds, always aware,

The tricolor, the emblem, anthems and slogans,
are worth more than fighting for, they are worth, peace,
but you still need to fight, the fight is within,
why compare, who is where, your place has never been,

if you still see poverty, illiteracy, denied rights, hypocrisy,
reaching mars, growing cities, more fulfilling democracy,

of beauty be proud of, of beauty you show off,
if dirty let’s clean up, change ourselves where needed

it is happening all around us, filthy, healthy, guilty or pretty
yet it is all that matter for us, for it is, our true Identity.

The tricolor, the emblem, anthems and slogans,
are worth more than peace, they are worth, you and me.
