Happy Republic Day!
Today is one of those days I have been waking up to the tunes of ae mere watan ke logon or mere desh ki dharti or some other patriotic song.
Being a late riser, I hardly remember attending flag hoisting ceremony in school or office, but patriotism is there in me for sure, on these national holidays and always. But yes, the loudspeakers bring it out more on these days ☺
I remember spending entire day with my friends on our common building terrace, when I was young. There used to be Satyanarayan pooja, followed by aarti and prasad distribution. Afternoon was meant for various competitions like lemon and spoon, sack racing, musical chair, essay writing. Entertainment programs and prize distribution lined up for late evening, followed by a sumptous dinner.
Many societies and organizations arrange such get togethers for their people. After all, wellness of the nation lies in unity of it’s people. Together we rise ☺
Jai Hind! Jai Maharashtra!
