Its India's Independence day today, the 15th of august and the whole of our nation will be singing Jana Gana Mana.. our national anthem. This day, always brings back memories of my school when I day functions used to be one of the most awaited day by students and teachers. For me, the practice sessions before the main day used to be fun, actually.. we were able to bunk classes and have so much fun! hehe.. Once the day arrived, the flag hoisting ceremony took place followed by our march past and other performances and programmes. Then sweets, samosas, jelebies etc were handed out to all the students of our school. Special lunch used to be served to the boarders and i was one of them.. but then we also had to bid our practice sessions a tearful good bye! Because that meant no more bunking! hehe.. but i wouldn't encourage bunking classes, ever.. i really miss the good old days terribly:)

India celebrates this day to mark the freedom of our country from the British rule. Delhi will be joining in the hoisting of the Indian flag after which there will be a speech by our beloved prime minister followed by cultural programs. Being a national holiday there will also be hoisting of flags across the country by seniors of each areas community.

India remembers its freedom fighters and their contributions towards our Independence. Today, we stand a free and proud nation.. HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY, everyone:)
