This is due to the noble efforts of Mr. Naveen Jindal, an Indian industrialist, and a former Member of Parliament that the right to fly the Indian National Flag with due respect on all days of the year has been restored to every Indian on legal ground.
In respect of our National Flag Mr. Naveen Jindal dreamed a book titled “Tiranga”. The photographs portraying our National Flag were invited from the photographers of different parts of the country for this project. The dream of the book, “Tiranga” came true in the year 2005. It was a great honour for me that one of my photographs was selected for this esteemed book. The book has been edited by Vijay S. Jodha and Samar S. Jodha.
I am sharing the above said photograph here along with the cover of the book, "Tiranga". I clicked this photograph in National Public School, Baheri (District Bareilly-India) on the occasion of 50th Anniversary of Indian Independence. I noticed a great zeal among the students of this school on this occasion. They were holding Tri-Colour Flags of India in their hands and running in the play ground. I asked them to give me a chance to portray them. They happily agreed and I clicked a some images. This is one of them. This photograph has been appreciated widely. The enthusiasm on the faces of children symbolizes the joy of freedom truly.
I wish my all friends a *Happy Independence Day* of India.
