As a global Indian I felt it a responsibility to release this icon on this Indian Independence day with a message to garner the spokes of the chakra through which Mahatma Gandhi maintained humility for the nation to march towards freedom. And to commemorate this Freedom day and the days that follow to remember to stand in solidarity and say no to corruption in each individual's own way.

Hence I humbly present this image as royalty free for all of you to use because it holds a very special message not only of integrity and secularism but a message to dust off the years of corruption in India actually constraining the freedom of every common citizen. So, as India goes through a global revolution with its knowledge-based educated young diversifying into numerous uncharted territories and seeing nothing but success, this bad apple of corruption has survived in many factions of the society by way of bribery from top-brass officials down to the "coolly". In fact corrupt activities are so deep routed that some of them are officially carried out in some societies thick in traditional ways, like gender inequality, dowry system etc. India is a Democratic Republic which maybe enjoying a democracy like no other in the rest of the world because it is clad in numerous belief-systems, culture and traditions completely different from each other and hence is a challenged one.

With this mentioned may I say that this hub is a foreword to a series of articles I intend publishing in the near future about India, especially to help the world understand the diversity of India and why Indians though integrated in many ways are diverse from one to another. I have observed during my world travels that Indians have amused, amazed and in some instances even confused certain others. My articles I hope will throw some clarity about the versatility in an Indians behavior so that our friends in the rest of the world get amused for the right reasons. :o) and assume many issues surrounding an Indian in the right judgement.

While I leave the inauguration of such articles for another time, I am pleased to state that this 15 August of 2011 has been one which has fallen at a time when most of the Indian people are nurturing the Gandhian spirit. I mean to say that it has happened at a perfect time when most of the beliefs of the world and that of India celebrate a season of "Giving and of Peace".

This 15 August has graced through the Holy Month of Ramadhan when Muslims in India and in the rest of the world are celebrating a season of giving, non-violence and peace.

The 15th of August also coincided with the day when Christians celebrate a day of Giving and Peace in the Mother (called the Ascension Day).

At the end of this season it is also when Muslims celebrate Eid, the Hindus in certain parts of India celebrate a harvest festival which is also culturally intertwined when they celebrate together as one community irrespective of cast, creed or religion. Hence another perfect season for giving and for togetherness.

So though the India Independence Day of 2011 was indeed a day to remember because of its significance during this peaceful charity-filled day, one must hope that the anti-corruption drive will assist/compel the Indian authorities to take a stance to effect a corruption-ban legally..

I am sure every Indian and fans of India had a good Independence day with the National flags fluttering and the National Anthem humming in the landscape, nevertheless.

      Hello Prasadjain Thank you for stopping by and also for pointing out the Ramadhan and Ramzan differences. Well in the Middle-east & GCC countries it is referred to as Ramadhan. On the other hand in South-east Asia (India) I know it is referred to as Ramzan.
