Today let us remember the golden heritage of our country and commence a journey of peace, harmony and progress on this Republic Day. Let new India arise out of peasant’s cottage, grasping the plough, out of huts, and let us help them grow and reach greater heights.

Independence day in Jaipur

Money confers the power to command the labors of others. Love of money is love of power and love of power is root of evil. Nowadays people know price of everything and value of nothing, and same is the case with us. A plastic flag won’t make us true Indian, it is the work that we do for our Country, that would make us a true Indian.

Republic Day in Jaipur

What’s the point of education, when educated people are throwing national flags on the road and uneducated people are collecting them??Actually People don’t have money problem, they have priority problem, get your priorities right and your money will get right.

Disrespecting Indian Flag

Flag is symbol of pride, honor, and respect for a country. What kind of respect are we showing?? A flag is hosted to ensure people that, they are in safe hands and soldiers are always there on borders for common man’s safety. Despite of picking up this flag and hosting it, we are just moving upon it and showing others that how disrespectful we are towards our country.

Indian National Flag

Let us take an oath that my national flag shall always fly in my heart and I will bring glory to my nation.Long years ago, we made a tryst with destiny and now the time comes when we shall redeem our pledge. At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life.
