"Long years ago we made a tryst with destiny, and now the time comes when we will 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 the new, when an age ends and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance.... We end today a period of ill fortune, and India discovers herself again." - - Jawaharlal Nehru (Speech on Indian Independence Day, 1947)
Happy 64th Independence Day to all…

Let’s make this Independence day "plastic free". Today, when I was back from Total, I was observing little boys and girls at the traffic signal with plastic flags. Let’s not buy plastic flags and encourage everyone in buying cotton tri-colour flags. Let’s all follow the flag rules with due respect.
