More about India’s Independence
For your curiosity, here are some old news paper reports in USA on the attempts by Sailendra Nath Ghose and others in supporting India’s Independance from the American soil NY Times Report 1921 and Pittsburgh News Paper 1930.
It was the midnight of August 14th 1947 when Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru declared “when the world sleeps India awakens”. This has come true now as India is ascending into a power house. As the western world struggles to keep up, all eyes are on India now! India’s ancient culture that has given its true freedom to embrace knowledge from all sources (Rig Veda) – has prepared it to regain its lost glory. On the contrary the closed society of Pakistan which gained the independence from Britain the same day, has degraded to a failed state and a terrorist haven !! It is a moment to reflect upon the core strengths of our Indian culture and come together celebrate our success and share our joy with the world! Jai Hind !!!
