My grand mom walked into my room earlier today asking me if it was independence day, I replied with the affirmative and she stumped me with her reply. She said “No wonder they are flying the flag of congress everywhere.”

My grandmother is one of the very few people that I am related to who have seen India before independence. They have lived the times of colonial rule and literally seen India grow up from birth.

congress flag
Not sure how many know this but the Indian flag was an adaptation of the congress flag, the only difference being that instead of the spinning wheel of congress a Chakra is present at the center.

Something tells me I wont be forgetting this incident in a hurry…
