India Celebrates its 64th Independence day
Celebrating our 64th Independence day and 63 years of democracy, I take this opportunity to share a few articles on the design enthusiast. First, about the Flag itself. source: wiki
It was quite saddening to watch a program on TV where the anchor was interviewing people and many of them could not answer a few basic question about the flag, and the country in general. None of them knew that the flag was designed by - Pingali Venkayya. (ok, ok...I know we cannot generalize) Is it too much to expect from Indian citizens that they know more about their nation? I know of instances where people mentioned "Vande Mataram " to be our national anthem (leave alone knowing anything about the national animal, flower or the bird.) We can do a lot better than this.
