Listening to songs from patriotic movies on the radio makes me nostalgic - for the years I spent a lazy day watching the parade and the PM's speech on TV, and then watching the same movies every year. The movies always had cheesy plot lines and army style songs. They remind me that I miss being in Delhi very much, miss this usual ritual.
No matter what criticisms I might have of India, on this day I am still proud to be an Indian. There really is no other country like it on earth, kinna sona tenu rab ne banaya!
