Proud to be an Indian

Celebrity divas talk about their favourite Independence Day memories; school parades seem to be the hot favourite

Freida Pinto
I liked the parades held at my school. Patriotism should be about acting on the issues at hand, making your country a better place to live in, instead of ranting ‘I believe in my country’.

Ragini Khanna
Independence day is an opportunity for the young generation to show their patriotism for their country. I believe we will attain freedom only if we change our thinking and perceptions.

Manjari Phadnis
When I was in 6th grade, I was forced to sing a patriotic song inspite of a bad cold. My voice cracked but I continued singing and everyone had a good laugh. I’ll never forget that day.

Minissha Lamba
The parades that used to be organised at my school and college are still my fondest memory of the day. Flag hoisting used to feel me with pride. I used to watch patriotic films.

Sherlyn Chopra
Once, I had written a poem, In This India, and everyone had loved it; that is my favourite I-Day. Also, I remember the I-Day, when I had distributed self-designed and handmade T-shirts to street children in Hyderabad.
