It’s Indian Republic Day today. There were speeches, songs and at one point, an ear-splitting shrill voice attempting to sing in my neighborhood. Children also released orange, green and white balloons, perhaps as a symbol of freedom from the former colonial rule. I also come from a colonized country and I know that with any type of freedom, for it to work for an individual or country, you need a deep sense of care and responsibility. You’re on your way, India. One day, one step at a time. Happy Republic Day to everyone and keep persevering! 🙂
