Happy Independence Day


The momentous date is here again to have a Tryst with Destiny of Modern India.
Some quotes, which may be relevant..

"Heroism on command, senseless violence, and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism — how passionately I hate them!" - Albert Einstein

"Men love their country, not because it is great, but because it is their own" - Seneca

"Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it." - Mark Twain

"कोई भी देश परफेक्ट नही होता..
उससे परफेक्ट बनाना पड़ता है..." - Rang de Basanti..
(No Nation is a perfect Nation.. It has to be made perfect )

Happy Independence Day..
