My Nation,My Salute...:):)

On the eve of India's sixty-eighth Independence Day I am happy to present a tiny table-cape with India's tricolor flag as a salad on a plate to honor the day ... It is indeed proud moment for any one,  to see their country's Flag flying high in their own country or any part of the world. I felt proud seeing our tricolor inside the Sears tower complex in Chicago.

India is a country with so many religious and ethnic groups, so much cultural diversity ... over 350 languages, more than 1,600 dialects, nearly 650 different tribes and with different food habits every few kilometers ... yet India is one country!

We regained the freedom to be what we are, to live the way we want to be. And the freedom had been the hallmark of this great region. India gave the concept of zero to the world. She gave the game of chess, algebra, trigonometry and calculus. She gave the world its first university, the early school of medicine and she gave four religions to the world. She nurtures hundreds of Mosques, Churches, Gurdwaras and Temples. The list is endless and unparalleled. It's India and I Salute her ... Jai Hind... :):)

  1. I have been fortunate enough to visit many countries. India has and always will be one of my very favorites! Long may your flag of freedom fly.

  2. Oh, Sujatha....what a pretty presentation!!! A salad in your flag's colors is absolutely genius! What a neat way to celebrate Independence Day! I didn't realize India's independence was so young. I'm 56, so that means India gained its freedom a scant 11 years before I was born. Wow! You gave a lot of history all wrapped up in a neat little bow, too! I had NO idea that India was the genesis of some of those things. So I have you guys to blame for me having to take algebra in school??? :-) :-) :-)

    This is a very pretty tablescape, Sujatha, and the colors of the salad are so vivid...they just bring the whole table to life! They work really well with the flowers you chose as well as that brightly colored butterfly. Those bright colors look terrific against all the white on the table.

    Bravo! And Happy Independence Day!!!!!!
