15th August, an Independence Day of India, was celebrated everywhere in India.
There was flag hoisting ceremony in my building too. Children and parents gathered in the building compound at six in the morning. Everybody had a small flag in their hands. Everybody was dressed in Indian clothes, women in salvar kameez or sari and men in kurta pajama. Women wore clothes of bright colors like orange and green and some wore white dresses too.
As the flag swayed with the breeze, everybody sang patriotic songs like ‘Uncha rahe triranga hamara” and then they all sang National Anthem.
After the flag hoisting ceremony, there was a small party where they served Idlis and tea,
