Like many of you, I had a question for myself today - why are we getting holiday on 15th August? and what should I be doing? For me, independence or freedom is one of the most valuable things in life, if not the most valuable. Who are guarding for us to stay free? It's Indian army, hence, I decided to remember army and whatever courage and grit I have seen recently. And Whatever little interaction I could have with the army they asked me to share some of the things that I saw. It goes without saying that all that they ask is respect and remembrance for themselves.
If we take even a pinch of pride from Indian army for being Bhartiya, I believe many of the problems will either look small or will disappear.
I have to take the reference of my recent journey to Leh-Ladakh to bring back some of the memories about Indian army. My respect for army has gone up from 1x to 100x after my trip to Leh-Ladakh so I thought of dedicating a blog to the army today by recalling what I expe…

I will not be surprised if more than 50% fail to handle the pressure and decide to have a first child. It does not stop there, after first child, expectations are to have a second child within 3-5 years after first child.
I am not at all against having babies rather I love babies and I imagine I would have one ourselves one day but it is not difficult to understand that there are lot of problems in our country because we have been told to respect elders so much so that they do not allow people in their early or late 20s to decide when to do what. Most of the elders think they have managed to raise kids and they had kids in their 20s, the next generat…
