64 Years Ago

Today is a special day for Indians every where.

64 years ago, India gained its independence from British rule. August 15, 1947 is a day that Indians every where always remember and every year on August 15, the day is commemorated and celebrated. It is celebrated similar to how Americans do up July 4. It’s a day full of fun, raising the flag over the Red Fort in Delhi, parades and fireworks! It’s a day to remember that it’s finally free and can rule for itself.

India’s a very young country and even though I can’t be home with my relatives, I know we’re all celebrating together today.

Happy birthday India!!
