The Incredible Independent India

15 August, 1947, though I was not born in that year, I haven’t seen the victory of magnificent India. Yet I can feel happiness when I read it in history or on the internet. The actual feeling comes out when someone has witnessed those days.  and you actually feel that you too belong to those days. I still remember, when my uncle who belonged to those days, narrated his story, of how they used to play the dangerous hide-and-seek games with Britishers and how they actually celebrated the victory. After hearing his story, I went to my friends and narrated this story as if I was present in those days.

In these internet days, we all get information on Independence day and hence will not copy-paste those contents here. I want you all to visit India and also experience their culture. Here are some wonderful photos of magnificent India. Well, I haven’t seen all of India, But here are some of my collections. Let’s start with  the place I belong to.

Mumbai.
Mumbai has some pretty places like Sanjay Gandhi National Park where you can go for a morning walk. It has a mini train ride and boating too. So pack your bag, full of snacks and go for a picnic. Mumbai also has Marine Drive, Gateway Of India, Juhu beach. Infact Mumbai is a mini Goa. Beaches, parties and shopping.

There are many, many many places in India. If I keep listing all, then the post will be too long. Please make a proper plan to visit India. Because there are many places in one state itself. They say that it will take you a lifetime to see each and every corner of India. Yet you will leave behind something. India is not only about historic places but also about spirituality. You will find inner peace when you visit places like Kedarnath, Rishikesh. Mine is yet to visit. 

Happy Independence day to all.. Jai Hind..  Bharat Mata Ki Jai… Vande Mataram
