Vaishali Takkar’s plans for Independence Day
Vaishali Takkar: I have no plans yet except attending my society’s flag hoisting ceremony and singing our National Anthem and as I did last year. I would be distributing food and basic needs stuff to the poor people on the streets and also enjoy my freedom from work! I cannot comment if this generation has lost the significance of this day but I would like to say as the years are passing by, they haven’t seen or heard the stories of real Independence and how we got free from the British. Nowadays, it’s more about the holiday, they just want to enjoy the day and some of them curse it as well since it’s a dry day.
