FOLLOW US:

Tanuj Virwani: Over 70 percent of our country is under the age of 25 . Therefore, it is our youth that is going to take this country forward in the years to come. It is our responsibility to do our bit for a nation that has given us so much. Show the world why we are the largest democracy and make sure our leaders are an extension of our thought process.

Keith Sequeira: Independence to me means to be independent not just in mind and body; but in spirit as well. To be able to live and express one’s self not just freely but also responsibly. This leads to growth of society and in turn the building of a healthy and great nation!

Kanwar Dhillon: Freedom does not come so easily. We are indebted to our national heroes who made this country what it is today. Our diversities should not be seen as a weakness but as our strength. It is only by working together that we can build a resilience nation.


Karishma Kotak:

 Proud to be an Indian. We have something unique about us that no matter what part of the world we are in when we meet each other it feels like we are one. I’d like to wish this unity for all for a long time to come.

Sherlyn Chopra: I love my country not because it is perfect but because it is my own. A salute to the soldiers who risk their lives for our country. A salute to the citizens who make our country proud. Let us celebrate freedom by promoting a human rights culture in which respect, dignity and equality become a code for living.

Parvati Vaze: Don’t buy into all the different damaging ideologies that try to divide people of different religions and stand strong and together as a nation. It is our differences that make our country so unique. We should help build our country in whatever little way we can.

Jay Soni: Wishing all harmony better education and sanitation for all even the small of villages love loyalty and unity everywhere. I’ve wished every year and this year is no different except that the intensity is more.

Mansi Srivastava: I’d like to wish a Happy Independence Day to my country and fellowmen wishing them happiness unity and love for all with more freedom of speech better education and sanitation for all.

Ridhima Pandit: Wishing a great Independence Day to all. Proud to be Indian and have always been we believer in unity in all forms of life.

Aashka Goradia: 

Independence Day is what our generation should honour the most, for we are living of what we did not know once existed. A land raided and brutally invaded for over thousands of years, now has a constitution, we must learn love and respect that constitution that unites us.

Shantanu Maheshwari: Freedom is not about one getting immunity from the obligation, but about living in a way where respecting and enhancing the freedom of others is more important. In a democratic country like ours, there are still quite a few prejudices so I feel that once we all work towards getting rid of trying to just put ourselves forward.
