Today, India stands tall and proud while she celebrates the 60th Republic Day. Everywhere, there is a festive air. Playschools and schools in Delhi celebrated the day before with kids dressing up as freedom fighters or leaders who gave India the strength and conviction to fight ahead peacefully for her freedom.
In Delhi, security has been beefed up at every spot.Passengers who plan to travel by air are advised to be reach early at the airport and be ready for several security checks before they can finally board their planes. In Bar Associations across the country, the Chief Justice of the respective High Courts will do the flag hoisting ceremony in the presence of other puisne judges and lawyers.
Let us hope and pray that the year 2010 will be a lucky and happy one for this country, the citizens like you and I and in particular, the young and brave men and women of the Indian defence forces who make it possible for us to sit comfortably in our homes and say this while they brave it out there. God bless them all!
