Happy Independence Day!

Independence is a good thing, especially if it’s from an imperial power. I always looked forward to 15th Aug - for a holiday and toffees from school when I was a kid, and for only a holiday now.

I don’t mind being an Indian. Given a choice, however, I would never choose India.

You sound supremely condescending here Deep. But I guess it's just you being you.

Happy Independence Day anyway.

Thanku!

Wagner

I generally dislike Wagner. However, I heard a piece by him today and it was sublime and breathtakingly beautiful.
