Wishing all my Indian fellows reading this "A Very Happy Republic Day. "
I miss those days when in India on this special day we were getting ready in the early Moring and were going to school for its celebrations. Later when at home around from 9 to afternoon time sit in front of TV and watch the live Republic Day parade from Delhi. Golden were those days just as India forever - shining bright as real Gold and proud with its history and current time too :) .
I have never seen these many rules for any national flag as we have for Indian flag,That's why INDIA is Great and different from other countries.
Here is a video of our Beloved National Anthem .Don't forget to stand and give our Matrubhumi it a salute when you play it.
(By any chance you missed to watch the video I posted in last post, check it now, you will truly like it. )
