indian independence day tiranga flag awardThe Indian Independence Day is tomorrow the 15th of August. As it is a national holiday, the office Independence Day celebrations were held today. Our HR department had organized an entertainment programme and free snacks. There was a quiz contest during which I won a ceramic bowl. Ooh, I felt so proud, I showed off the little bowl to everyone in office.

It is traditional to fly kites on this day. One of my bosses bought a kite and manjha and flew it from the office terrace. It was such a joy to watch, I felt like a kid again.

Wishing everyone a very Happy Independence Day!!


  1. Thank you!

    I guess the presence of a strong breeze is important for flying a kite.

  5. Happy 60th Independence Day 2 u too.. even our office was nicely decorated with small flags all around..

  6. Thanks for all your comments -

    Sidhusaaheb - I've seen people do it with zero wind. You have to keep pulling the string hard and letting out string at the same time. This creates a wind for the kite to go up. Once it reaches higher levels, the wind is there to help.

    Reeta, Niki and Asha - thanx.

    Preeti - We had tricolor balloons and ribbons all over the place.

  7. My independence day wasn't all that great....
