India turns 62...

At the stroke of midnight 62 years ago,India obtained independence from the british raj after being ruled and looted of its entire wealth.Before the british invaded and took control over india in the 1800's it was the richest country in the world with a GDP higher than that of the present United states.It took more than 55 years for india to become a formidable economic superpower in the present world league competing with China and its contemporaries.


As a citizen of the indian repulblic,I salute the initiative taken by mahatma gandhi in a non violent way to obtain independence and spread the word of peace.Jay hind!
