Thoughts on Republic Day

Republic day is celebrated on 26th January every year in India. The major reason behind the celebration of 26th January as Republic Day of India is that on 26th January 1950 India became fully sovereign nation because constitute of India came into force first time on this day. Another reason behind the celebration of Republic Day is rooted in Indian national congress’s decision to celebrate this day as Republic day of India every year during the Lahore session. From 1950, Indians are observing 26 January as Republic day of India. On this day, the whole nation remains on holiday and people of India salute the sovereignty of India by hoisting Indian Flag. This day is celebrated at different levels and in all parts of India.

This day is also used to show the muscle power of armed forces and diversity of Indian culture. More or less Republic days of most of nation resemble with each other and to some extent, our Republic day celebrations also come under the same category. I remember my childhood day when we lined up in front of TV sets to watch Republic day parade streamed live on TV. On those days, large numbers of people specially visit Delhi to watch this event live from the Rajpath, however, today this enthusiasm for the Republic day is missing in people and very less number of people really seems interested in visiting Delhi for watching Republic day parade.

It is not easy for me to predict what has caused this change or we need to change Republic day celebrations for making them more attractive or we allow everything to happen as it is happening. Today, India has seen growth in many segments and thinking of many people about life has also changed. Present Indians are busier with their life and work and second, we are also becoming a part of the global village where no boundaries exist. Therefore, nobody knows exactly that what future has stored for us, however, one thing is clear that we are heading for some non-stoppable changes.

Benefit of Adding Fastag to the Vehicle (Paytm Fastag)

  Today, India is progressing in every field and we are seeing many new improvements coming to our lives. One such improvement is mandatory to use of fastag on all vehicles in India. With this change, we can see the saving of time of commuters and saving of valuable fuel. As per the Indian transport minister, with the use of fastag on vehicles, we can hope to see a saving of Rs 20,000 crore. I hope that it will improve the management of vehicles on the various toll plazas. I have many bad experiences on various toll plazas due to manual operation and high rush.  Already, toll collectors and people are finding this scheme of fastag very helpful. I have already installed fastag on my both vehicles two years back. So far, Paytm fastag is the most used fastag in India because it is linked to the Paytm wallet which makes it easy to add cash and make payments. I am also using Paytm Fastag on one of my main vehicles and my experience is very smooth with it. It is very easy to buy Paytm Fasta

Book review- "Wings of Fire"

“Wings of Fire” is an autobiography of former President of India and an eminent scientist Shri A P J Abdul Kalam. It is very important for every Indian and especially for youth to read this autobiography. It is not because he is a former president and an eminent scientist, therefore every Indian should read it, however this autobiography really has good knowledge to share with us, a knowledge which is very difficult to get elsewhere. This autobiography is different in many ways as it tells us many lessons with true examples. This book tells us the story of a Muslim boy, who became the President of a Hindu dominated country by hard world and dedication. It gives us an inside look into the lives of Muslims in India and relationships between Hindu and Muslim communities in India. It tells us, how common Hindu and Muslim respect each other’s religion. “Wings of Fire” is the story of a small boy achieving his dreams despite all the odds. This real story tells us the role of family, re
