He spent so many years away from his loved one to protect our Bharat Mata. This kind of sacrifices can be made by only a soldier who is dedicated to serving the nation.  Please have a big round of applause to him.

Koi Bhi Desh Perfect Nahin Hota, Use perfect Banana Padata Hai

I am proud to be an Indian but are we the best country? Today we are suffering from problems like corruption, terrorism, high pollution, unemployment, lack of sanitation, poverty and many other problems. Governement is doing its work to face these problems. But in order to destroy them, we need to work hand in hand with the government.

On this independence day, let’s take a pledge to be a good citizen and do your bit of contribution for a greater India. Thank you so much, everyone, for being here. I would like to take your leave. Jay Hind, Jay Bharat.
