Culture Happens wishes all Indians a HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!
Today, India celebrates their 65 years of independence from British rule. For many, I suppose it’s just a day off from work. But for many others, especially the elderly, they can remember the exuberance of becoming a free nation, mixed with the violence of the Partition which was taking place at the same time.
I want to wish all Indians a Happy Independence Day.
Take a look here for some excellent photos of “The Many Faces of India”.
I’ll copy a couple pics below to whet your appetite (all credit to yahoo news for the photo essay).
