Indian Independence Day !!!🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳
My grandmother born in nov 1946 celebrated her first bday in independent india... the family had to seek refuge and leave their home back in Rawalpindi Pakistan and amidst religious unrest and more than 100 years of slavery , they breathed their “swatantra hawa” in August 1947.... since then the male members of the family have served in the Indian army ... and she tells me how she fought as a child with her father to let her use the gun and shoot down anybody who wanted to cause harm to her country... 72 years and counting!!!.. she says she has seen india change every single day , every single moment , the robbed, divided india has grown exactly like a phoenix from the ashes.. how beautifully those wounds have healed to today where our country is one of the most progressive ,young ,talented and economically sound countries in the world .. the largest democracy ... ingenuity runs in our blood.. Indian ceos of top notch companies .. lawyers .. astronauts ... artists... every particle of sand in india boasts of rich heritage .. culture and traditions .. with over four dominant religions we can brag of “ unity in diversity “ giving the perfect example of “ humanity over religion”!!
And as a young Indian woman I’m proud of my constitution that has given me the right to live .. speak and be the way I want!!
With three generations of proud and independent women I thank god everyday to be born in a country like mine!!!! Mera desh mahaan!! Be Indian .. bleed tricolour!!! JAI HIND!!!!!( the prettiest woman in this pic is her️spot my lifeline!!!!!) #poetry #love #wordporn #fitness #writer #mood #sketch #artist #paint #author #pretty #indian #feelings #romance #girls #quotes #book #blogger #art #fashion #instapoem #blog #word #fashion #eyes #artist #sketch #painting #igdaily #jaihind #india - 5 hours ago
