Happy Independence Day 2009


Happy Independence Day India!


Here are Shashi Kapoor and Kader Khan from Ghar Ek Mandir (1984) wishing you you the same:




While playing on the internet I came across the South Asia Citizens Web and a set of resources on the partition which brought me to this set of photos from the BBC  News below.


And thanks to my Mumbaikar dost, Vaibhav, for sending the lovely images of prosperity of India, as he tells me, “these are the most beautiful words (Sanskrit) which all Indians are aware of.”  Enjoy!

  1. Jai Hind indeed! I think it’s a much happier occasion now than when it actually happened, but at least now India has freedom and it is a day to celebrate and to recognize and remember what it took to get there. Thanks for the videos and pictures!
