  1. The food, the colors, the holidays are just perfect.The variety keeps getting better .#ThankfulThursdays

  2. India is such a country with different color & culture for every couple of hundred KM you go. Keep loving and Thanking 🙂

  3. India is a land of full contrasts and that is exactly why you’ll either love it or hate it. Indian streets look colorful always because of these saris that our women wear. Smell of Agarbattis and chanting of Mantras in these beautiful temples make our mornings amazing. We have the collection of a large number of languages in our country. There are 22 regional languages which are certified by the Government of India. Variation exists to an extent that we have a change in accent at every 10 km of distance. India is the largest democracy in the world, the highest battlefield exist in our country, our country gave birth to Aryabhatta, Chanakya, Ramanujan, APJ Abdul Kalam and more. How come some ignorant Indians feel intolerant in this beautiful country. The first thought that comes to my mind when I hear the word “India” is just “Love”.

    1. wow, that’s so true my views about India are shades of grey i love India but i’m willing to make India better even if i’ve to sit and clean the streets myself.

  4. these are lovely thoughts for the nation – imagine living in a country where women are not allowed to work or drive a car or even go outside alone! Thank you for linking up with #ThankfulThursdays.

  5. Bang on! We take a lot of thing’s for granted, but we hear the world news and realize that even while being a developing country with world’s second largest population we definitely have a lot to be thankful for.

  6. Beautifully written post. I am thankful always and proud forever to be born as an Indian. Vande Mataram. 🙂
