Republic Day

India got independence from the British on 15th August 1947, but the country became a republic constitutional  on 26th January 1950. Since that day 26th January of every year is observed as ‘Republic Day’ marking that auspicious occasion.

From 1950 to the present times there has been a vast difference in India earlier during earlier times

“India was referred as Sone ki Chidya” – Golden Bird

Even today people we all remember singing the song ‘Jaha Daal Daal par sone ki chidiya karti hai basera woh bharat desh hai mera

Dev Bhoomi” which literally means “The Land Of God”

India is referred as Dev Bhoomi . In India there are thousands of temples, shrines and other sacred places which shows the importance and presence of God. The river Ganga is considered very holy and Goddess

But with time many things have changed ,from petty to heinous crime, corruption,unemployment, discrimination, poverty have gone up. We have always blamed someone or the other for all the problems system as faulty, politicians as corrupt, governments as irresponsible and many other accusations.

Yes the government , the politicians all have a lot of power but what I want to state is that so many times we individuals remain silent and mute observer for our own selfish interest . Discrimination and crime happens many times around us . It may start with a simple thing like giving a bribe for a challan ( Violation Ticket) at a traffic signal and then getting away with it. The attitude remains the same to get away with money or power. We cannot blame the government , or the politicians or anyone for everything .

It’s Simple if we need a change we need to participate and become the change  If we remain dishonest, unaccountable and irresponsible, then definitely we will get our governments corrupt, arrogant and insensitive. If we are the master of this democracy, we need to make ourselves deserving to be in a democracy.

So let’s not consider Republic day as another Sunday , let us on this  Republic Day think and evaluate ourselves as a citizen and how we can improve ourselves and truly celebrate our Republic Day

Happy Republic Day

Giethoorn – Car free village

 Giethoorn is a charming village without roads . The village is in  Netherlands, about 75 miles away from Amsterdam. 

This village is known as ‘The Venice of the North’ because of its similarity with the Italian city; there are many bridges and no roads except for the cycling lane.

Vehicles are strictly not allowed in the village but however due to the increase in tourists bicycles are allowed. Most of the transport is usually done by boats

The tourists like the village and are fascinated by its peaceful environment. The canals, small wooden bridges, and the charming houses add to the beauty 

COPENHAGEN ZOO

The Copenhagen Zoo is the most visited Zoo in Denmark and also is one of the oldest zoos in Europe.

 It is divided into two parts. One part of the Zoo is farm animals and African animals like zebras and giraffes etc. The other part has animals from Asia and South America.

The zoo also has polar bears! And it’s fun to watch them. It is not very often that you get to see polar bears,

There is also a glass tunnel and from that we can see the polar bear swimming. It is an amazing experience.

 The zoo also has plenty of little play areas for kids, and small snacks shops as well.

If you get a chance do visit the zoo. It’s worth a visit
