Wishing everyone a Happy Independence Day from Madraasi
India and we Indians celebrating our 70 th Independence Day, today is being a great pride for each and everyone of us. Like I shared last year Why India is Unique from all the other countries – It’s one and only “Unity In Diversity”, how many of us agree that still we keep up the unity in diversity in mind – few of us right. Wish everyone one of us to respect, follow and to share thoughts more and more about unity in diversity among us.
