it's been ages i saw a live march past,with the biggies taking salute and the sacred yard unfurling and the crushed flowers streaming in the misty air of an early august morning to the sound of the bugle.then 52 seconds of solemnity...lots of doves flying,sweet fragrance of mogra and marigold,dahlia wafting in the air and sweets waiting to be distributed.
now,lived an odd quarter of a century..seen more holidays than independence days,...er...let me rephrase...bandhs and curfews,flags looked good in govt.buildings and universities and VIP cars,today i see festoons,balloons and mini flags of patriotism all over,all around...everywhere and just everywhere...i love my office space today :)
suddenly,everyone is so full of national josh,you can see the saturated and spontaneous feelings of desh bhakti,naah,i am not getting cynical,i just love to see all of us being so nice and nicey on the eve of 15th aug,why can't it be like this the rest of the year??
is progress affected when you are nice and nicey,don't know!!at least,let's stop being pseudo-nice,it's better to be indifferent,honesty still is the best policy in moderation.let's re-inforce the pledge where all indians are my brothers and sisters,yeah actually...
happy independence eve
