Happy 67th Birthday India !


Friday 15 August, 2014 by Uncle Spike

Wonderful, wonderful India….



A land of mystique, vibrant colours, people of character, head-shaking, tigers, a space programme, smiles, 20,000 trains on 65,000km of track, call centres, coconuts, and a US$100 billion IT industry…




A land of colourful spices, beggars, Bollywood, elephants, temples, beaches, 1.2 billion people, a thousand curries, The Ganges, mountains, plains, rivers and deserts….




I long to return to the shores of the sub-continent, but in the meantime, I wish all my colleagues, friends, and bloggers alike, a happy, peaceful and proud Independence Day.





P.S.:  please note, and excuse, the quality of the images. All are scans of low quality 6″x4″ (15x10cm) prints that were stored away in an attic for a long time.

    Nice post. The whole world is reflected here, in its people, culture, habits, etc. From huge deserts to the snow clad Himalayas, India has it all. Thank you for your post and your wishes, I am a proud Indian. 🙂
