67th Independence Day

15th August 2013
67th Independence day and google doodle too celebrates it with a beautiful doodle.
Woke up early, for personal work which turned out to be more easy than ever. Getting an appointment with Dr Prince, that too being first in the list, is as good as a miracle.
Flat, out from there by 830 am, reached home just in time for a nicely organised Flag Hoisting ceremony. The hoisting was done by the seniors in the apartment complex followed by games for different age groups, starting from kids. It was a treat to see all the kids participating so well in the games and more importantly, having fun. The lunch was organised in a nice manner, and quite a huge spread I must say.
Thought of enjoying the after siesta, with the pouring rains by the side to give company. Couldn't have been a better afternoon.

Tomorrow is Varamahalakshmi Puja. An important festival in this part of the country. While traversing through the Madivala market, even at 2:30 in the afternoon, it was full of people. The lovely sight of heaps of flowers only made the slow movement of traffic, all the more pleasurable. Perks of life, if I may add.
A simple but a interesting day and went the way it should have.

The independence day, is celebrated every year to remind us of the fact that, we were once under the control of a foreign rule and we have fought against them to come out of it to have our say. We had managed to get the independence, but there are many areas in life , where we still need to come out of the dependence. I am not talking from external factors, but factors within us. Get rid of all the small issues that we keep fighting for mostly within us and get over it. Find your true independence over your self. Live a simple life but a happy one. Make lives around you a little more happier, even if that means the life of one person. Change for the better.
