64th Republic Day of India

Dear India,

You've had a tough year. Well, let's rephrase that. You've had a really tough life. You have demons from your past to haunt you, you're surrounded by unpredictable neighbors, you're being governed by a rather incompetent lot, the youth of your country is slowly giving up on you, and let's not even talk about the state of girls in your country anymore. You've got a lot of fixing to do. It's not going to be easy and it's not going to be quick, but it is indeed possible.

You're still young, you have your very valid redeeming qualities and you're only getting wiser with age. For all my life that I've known you, we've shared a love-hate relationship of sorts. But, let me assure you that it's been love for the better part. I believe in you and I know you will grow up to be something amazing. Please believe in your individuality, your unique culture, and your simple people. Don't die of an identity crisis, the mighty one. There's a long way to go.

Jai ho!

Much love,
