Happy republic day Indians..
Awakening or rather re-awakening comes in many forms.. The realisation of a sense of pride in being an Indian, in my case. Yes, we may be just be the 12th largest economy in the world, a 74th in the world rankings for corruption, second to only China in terms of population, but we as a nation have a lot to be proud of.
Bollywood. Our democracy. The unity amongst us when tragedy strikes our countrymen. The goosebumps we feel when we hear our national anthem. The diversity of culture and language we have. The myriad traditions we still follow irrespective of how 'modernised' we have become.
