Celebrating Independence!!!!


Hey Guys…

This is the first Independence day I celebrate with my blog and Bloggers..Right from the age of 5 my way of celebrating Independence had been changing and it differs a lot at different stages of life.

From the Age of 5-10..I used to go to school only for the purpose of getting chocolates which were provided at the end of Independence day celebrations in school.

From 10-12 I participated in various dramas,programmes and speech..Those days were real fun as I used to forget many dialogues..But I will manage by speaking my own dialogues which will make the crowd to laugh. And behind the screens I was given punishments for such a behaviour on stage.

But the next stage was a little bit different and fascinating one. At the Age of 13-15 I participated in NCC.I felt really proud to wear the NCC uniform.Mainly because it looked different with all those badges. And since I was the Corporal of my NCC unit I had lots of responsibilities during the Independence day like gathering troops..arranging them in a neat and regular manner. It feels really good when you are commanding others.

At 15 and 16 I was the member of school RSP troop..which was nothing but voluntary services.another similar one like NCC. Those years were great ones too.

But after entering college there was nothing much to celebrate since there were no functions.No NCC or RSP in my college and not even a chocolate to share. So during the college my way of celebration completely changed.I used to pin up the flag over my shirt every year to show everyone that I am proud to be an Indian.But  my focus were really upon watching new movies that are releasing on Independence day. My friends would book tickets and we had some few funny and good hours during those days.

Now my college days are over.Lucky I got this blog and bloggers to celebrate with this time. And to my surprise there was an award waiting for me today from my fellow blogger MEGHANA.

I surely have to tell about her blog here. Those who haven't visited her blog please do so.By clicking the name above.Her blog features mostly about our culture,tradition,friendship,God,Saris etc..etc…arranged in a neat template and very inviting to read.I am very happy to receive the award from her. 

So there is no fun in celebrating alone…So i want to share this award with my fellow bloggers who deserves this too…So I present this award to the following members..And the winners can put this picture in your blog(as a widget) if you like to do so.


This is the code for the award:
