Happy independence Day

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by domestic walls;
Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit;
Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought and action -- Into that heaven of freedom, my father, let my country awake.
- Rabindranath Tagore

Incredible India

India - is a nation where "Pizza" reaches home faster then an "Ambulance" ... where people get "Car" Loan @5% but "Education" Loan @12% ... where "Rice" is sold at Rs 40/- or more per K.G but "Mobile Phone Sim card" is distributed for free of cost … and the list goes on ….

Where do I see "India" in all of these ?

Last but not the least, ... where thousands die without "food" but the govt. can still "afford to pay" Rs 31 crores (and counting) for keeping Kasab (a terrorist ) safe & alive.
