Thank you Jul 4, 2003

We had fireworks yesterday night and of course, today will be a spectacular fireworks show . Tomorrow is the last day that we can enjoy fireworks here in the state of Colorado. My son just loves it!

What does independence mean to
a bird bounded in a cage.....
a slave bounded to work 24 hrs. in a day with both his hands tied up....
a woman living her life by just only satisfying her husband and children by working as a housewife.
Think over the above lines and then think over the importance of independence in our lives-
Below is a poetic phrase in hindi regarding independence-
AAZAADI TUMKO BHI PYAAREE HAI
AAZAADI HUMKO BHI PYAAREE HAI
KYONKI YEH KISI KI BAANDI NAHIN
YEH MERI TUMHAAREE NAHIN,
KAHO KEE HAMAAREE HAI.
BEST WISHES ON INDEPENDENCE DAY TO U.S. !
MAY LORD GIVE HAPPINESS AND PROSPERITY TO EACH AND EVERY INDIVIDUAL OF THIS WORLD!
ENJOY THE FIREWORKS-

As one of a member has asked for meaning of hindi words, here is the same-
Independence is a loved one of yours
Independence is loved one of mine as well.
As it is not limited to a single person and is open to all.
Don't say that it is either mine or yours, just say it is ours.
MEANS INDEPENDENCE IS EQUALLY IMPORTANT TO EACH ONE OF US LOVED BY ALL . WE'D GIVE RESPECT TO EACH OTHERS' INDEPENDENCE AS WELL NOT LIKE AS DONE BY BRITISH BEFORE IN 1947 IN INDIA WHO WAS DENYING INDEPENDENCE TO HER.

Dear Prakaash,

Thank you for reminding us to appreciate freedom.

What exactly do the Hindi words say?

Thanks,
Rita

The people who chose the hottest time of year to spend the day outdoors and start fires.. LOL
Thank you, have an awsome day everyone! 8^D

~~Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one~~

I'm not British, but I, and I'm sure those who are, wish P. well. (I will say no more to avoid the jagged rocks of politics, old or new). I was only making a gentle historical joke. I guess one way and another we are all, everywhere, British, Indian & everyone, struggling for the other kind of independence that you describe so nicely

Best wishes
