The country celebrates its 71st Republic Day . India is drenched in patriotism , the heart of every Indian beats today for its soil.
It’s a national holiday so it’s a relaxed day for most of us . But there are lakhs who are rushing to the Republic Day parade in Delhi . Every city , every mohalla has a flag hoisting ceremony . The national anthem jan gan man fills each heart with pride.
My throat chokes a bit when I sing it as if the love and devotion to Mother India swells up at that moment .
Many awards are given by the President on this day – soldiers , martyrs , children , artists and so on .
The leading Hindi newspaper Dainik Jagran organised a series of programmes of flag hoisting , cultural extravaganza and awards to citizens all over the country . I am humbled to share that in the field of naari shakti and environment – I was felicitated . My journey is 11 years old now and with such encouragement from the society I’m sure to go on for years to come !
Jai hind , Jai Bharat
