Republic Day celebrations
Every year nearly all buildings or areas or societies hoist the Indian flags or organise some events on Independence and Repulic Day. And it was no different this year too. I bought two tricolored chakras which move like crazy at the slightest swish of breeze instead of the usual flags. We already have a few flags at home. This year the roadside sellers also had tricolored balloons!
Apart from the usual stuff, Mira Road also has the Children's Marathon in which all the schools of Mira Road participate. I came to know how many schools are there in the place due to this Marathon (as we are only a few years old here). It was nice to see the enthusiastic children run a little, then walk a little when tired.... but their national spirit was at its highest!
So what if I missed the Mumbai Marathon due to Moharram and full booking even 3 months in advance !!!???
