“Long years ago, we made a tryst with destiny, and now the time comes when we shall redeem our pledge… At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom.” – Jawaharlal Nehru (Independence Day speech – 1947)

India celebrates its 72nd Independence Day on 15th August 2018. It has been 72 years since the day when our forefathers finally realized the dream that brought the whole country together. It is the day when the freedom struggle of the Indians finally turned fruitful. A lot of blood, sweat and tears have been shed in the long journey.

Since that day, 15th August has been celebrated with great pomp and fanfare. This day all Indians come together to salute the sons and daughters of Mother India who gave their lives for the nation. We also salute the sons and daughters who are still out there at the borders protecting us all round the year,. ensuring that we can sleep peacefully in our homes.

We at GRA also commemorate this day with great zeal and reverence. Our creative artists had made a beautiful rangoli specially for this occasion. The whole studio was decorated with the three colors of our Tiranga (Tricolour – The Indian national Flag). In fact our IT team had changed the wallpaper of all the PCs to Independence Day wishes. It looked wonderful! The studio was breathing the air of patriotism.

The event began with everyone standing up in respect to sing along the National Anthem. It was overwhelming to see everyone singing our National Anthem with so much unity and feeling.

India has always been a unison of various cultures and traditions. To signify this everyone dressed up in various different cultures. The organizing committee decided to put up a ramp walk for all of them. After quite contemplation a winner was chosen.

A Quiz on the Indian Freedom Struggle was conducted. It was a tough competition between the teams but the Animation team emerged victorious. Later there were some singing and stand up performances by the talented gems of Golden Robot.

After such amazing celebrations, we were bound to feel hungry 😝. So we moved to the snacks and sweets thus ending the celebrations for the day.
