    Celebrating India’s Independence Day in a foreign country is so Contradictory!
    And then the same Indians welcoming the country’s PM outside India with Flags, Drums and Crackers!
    That only means they want to be truly in India. Well, it is good patriotism only if they decide to go back and
    get involved in some development projects there – schools/hospitals/libraries/garbage removal, etc.
    On the same note, the financial flow from overseas if at all is mostly seen going towards family members back home and hardly any for these areas.

    There are millions and millions in our Independent Country that are still looking for opportunities for good education, work and better living conditions. Let us learn to accept responsibility with this Freedom and do something for those deprived instead if possible!

    Sorry, I might have started with a Complicated Hello but would like to end it with a Very Pleasant Bye for Now! 🙂
