61st Replublic Day

How long has it been that you attended a Flag hoisting on one of the National days?
Not after school.....

Was enriched today when small kids of our building with support, encouragement of their mothers got together to hoist our Indian flag. Interestingly made to rest on the pulley (thread rolls); the flag hoisting marked the start of the
day for us.

Was followed by the National Anthem, snacks and a drawing spree where all participants were given gifts. They were informed about our President and Prime Minister.

The kids got me into putting my thoughts on paper. I held the blank drawing sheet in my hand after a long time and realized my mind was so restricted, I let the crayons do the wonders for the pencil gave me a scare. haha!

It was time well spent. Some pictures to speak for themselves...

Kids were pleased to receive postal colours.

Drawings by the kids.

I have been reading this book, its pretty impressive how the Author conveys through incidences his experience of Mumbai. I like his statements, analysis and judgements at the end of every chapter. Its getting me addicted to it more and more.

A few quotes from the starting chapter:
"The choice you make between hating and forgiving can become the story of your life" - Ch 2

"I am gay, I am jewish, I am a criminal. Bombay is the only city I have ever found that allows me to be all of them" - Ch2

"Civilisation after all is defined by what we forebid, more than what we permit" -Ch2

"When you judge the power that is in a person, you must judge their capacity as friend and as enemy" Ch2
