Onam Greetings 2007



Onam: (Malayalam: ഓണം) is an annual harvest festival, celebrated mainly in the Indian state of Kerala. Onam Festival falls during the Malayali month of Chingam, the first month of Malayalam Calender, (August - September as per the Gregorian calendar) and marks the homecoming of legendary King Mahabali. Ranging from four days to ten days, all the activities during this season are centered on worshipping, music, dances, sports, boat races and good food.

"Long years ago, we made a tryst with destiny and now the time comes when we shall redeem our pledge... At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India
will awake to life and freedom."
Jawaharlal Nehru,

(audio) on the eve of independence

The day when India woke up to freedom back in 1947 was a day of great celebration. A country got rid of her foreign yoke and became a sovereign nation, she celebrated her sovereignty on this day - the triumph of numerous martyred souls. It was a day of fulfillment, it was the day of a new beginning, a birth of a nation.On the stroke of midnight, a country came into life again as the British handed over the governance of India to the Indian leaders.The long and difficult struggle had borne fruit at last, though the happiness was marred by the fact that the country was divided into India and Pakistan and the violent communal riots had left the countries permanently scarred.


It is our duty to preserve this Freedom!

Carry this forward to the future!

We did,We do,We will do!!!


Set the celebration on Air, Share your Joy,
You're Free to do it,
Share this to every Indian, to say


Vande Mataram!


60th INDEPENDENCE DAY OF INDIA

This is our 60th Independence Day!

Freedom is not a Right but a Feeling!

Let's be proud to feel the Freedom!

Let's say loud we are INDIANS!!!


Let all of us get to-gather &
Let's Celebrate Our Freedom!
