15th August 2006, The biggest democracy in the world celebrates Her Independence, Her freedom.

Every year the preparations for this day begin well in advance… The atmosphere is all charged up with patriotic songs playing on loudspeakers and the dominant colours visible around are saffron,white and green-The Indian Tricolour.

            This year the preparations have begun in a very disturbing way!High Alert,tight security are the words being used for independence day preparations.I had to go through a metal detector and security check when I went shopping to the mall yesterday, just like they do at the airport! First time in my life , my car was stopped to be thoroughly checked?There is an atmosphere of fear and anxiety around.

On this anniversay of our freedom let us all pray and hope that the demons of terrorism and war are defeated and peace and harmony returns…

    In Nasik? Well I guess, being a military town, with the press and the MIG factory. But again- metal detector in NASIK????????????
    The mind is boggled.
    Happy Independance Day!
