Not only I but everyone of my comrades showed the profound joy which the National Flag has brought to us on July 28. Asoka’s Chakra in the middle of the white band at once flashed across my mind and once again revived the past glory of the Hindu period, the invincibility of the people of Bharatvarsha. The Tricolour produced an altogether different impression. It now marks the triumph of our long struggle for freedom and symbolises the heroism and patriotism of our venerable leaders. May God unite us all under the National Flag and bring prosperity to our beloved country.

Farewell to India
I am an Englishman about to leave your great country. But not till I have seen your glorious flag being hoisted. May I say how much in the fitness of things it was for your paper to distribute these very handy emblems of the nation to its thousands of readers. A most appropriate gift of the occasion.
Tom Levers, Army, Poona
Being a Nationalist Muslim, I am not very happy with what has happened. But I am game to make the best, because the best that can be done has been done. I gladly and proudly salute the Flag of new India and am glad to have a copy of your souvenir.
Yakub Mehoob, Bombay
Some things don’t change
From the very day I read your notice in the paper, I began to wait eagerly for July 28, the day on which we were to receive your present, National Flag. But you cannot imagine my disappointment unless you have suffered one such yourself, when on inquiry in the evening I was informed that through the mischief of the news-boy of the local agent, I was deprived of my Flag. I hope you will not miss the coming 15th and you will send a better present on that date.
Prahlad Swaroop, Bulandshahr
