Maa Tujhe Salaam : Republic Day


Like August 15, January 26th is a special day for us Indians. It was on this day that the Constitution of India, drafted by the Constituent Assembly came into existence.
My Baba (Grandfather) fought the battle for India's Independence and as kids many a afternoon and evenings were spent listening to him describe an India that we never knew and the battles that helped us as a nation reach that day when we became an independent country.
Pooja hosted a wonderful theme for this week, celebrating India's Republic Day. I had made a note of all the dishes I would prepare keeping in mind the Indian Tri-color. Alas, the week has almost gone by and caught up with work I didn't really get a chance to cook any meals reflecting this theme.
It was then that I decided to change my Blog template. Now it does reflect the colors of our flag. :) I also looked to Mother Nature for inspiration, and found these beautiful pictures. Nature too celebrates this day with us :)
