Let's work towards making this a better and peaceful country. Independence is a privilege which has to be protected by everyone by being Responsible . The responsibility lies with us to make sure that country progresses, to  make sure we don't take this independence for granted and to make sure that we elect persons, to run this country, who are capable and honest and not some one based on caste or religion. We have to guard our country from enemy, within and outside, if we have to keep enjoying the fruits of Independence. Think about it.   Jai Hind
