"On the 15th of August, we once again reminisced our forgotten heroes and roared along with their echo's "Vande Mataram". With our eyes set on Her rising tricolour flag that fills our hearts with deep bonded love, we sang 'Jana Gana Mana...'. We shared this love with sweets and listened to the many stories of sacrifices that gave us this moment of freedom. We rejoiced in the bliss of unity of being Indian. An evening with the immortal heroes of our land, to feel the valour in their stories of sacrifices and victory", said the students who attended the Puja.
