Independence Day 2010

Volunteers of Sankalp Indian Foundation celebrated the 63rd independence Day. The program started with the singing of the National Anthem. What followed was a rich discussion in which volunteers shared the ways in which they celebrated the festival of independence when they were young.

Aamir Khan was giving well thought answers- that made sense. There was a clear distinction between the intellectual levels of Aamir Khan and this journalist, who was making a mockery out of himself. I asked myself- “Is this the state of Indian media today, or am I a part of the minority that hates such things on television?
