"Vande Mataram !!!"

Indian Independence Day Celebration at Schenectady

Flag hoisting ceremony at Schenectady was a great success

( Vinod Kaulgud reports....)
The dawn of today brought the 53rd Anniversary of INDIAN independence. "INDIA" - our motherland- has a whole new meaning in a foreign land and was very obvious when INDIANS gathered to celebrate a proud day in INDIAN history! When the world is moving towards rapid technological advancements, we, young software professions, the drivers of modern world, led by example, displaying patriotism and celebrated the first Independence Day of 21st century in a grand manner!

As scheduled, the National flag was hoisted at 7:30 AM by Anil Ron. Myself called a salute with the ecstatic chant of JAI HIND. SaiPrasad led the group by singing 'Vande Mataram', the song that inspired millions of Indians, during their struggle for freedom. Our National anthem was sung together and the sheer enthusiasm brought goose pimples on those present! The function was concluded by the sweet distribution ceremony.

A special thanks to Rajesh Sannuthi for bringing the Tricolor all the way from INDIA!!! This wouldn't be possible for me alone without the help of Narasimha Rao, Vijesh Kumar, Saurabh Rath, Satheesha Shamanna, Parag Dehadaraya, Balakishore Bodgari, Pabbu Venugopal, Ravi Vangala.

Very few people have noticed that, when Anil launched our new website yesterday at 2.30 PM, it was the beginning of new day (Aug. 15, 00.00 hr.) in India . What a splendid way to celebrate the first Independence day of this new millennium, before our compatriots in India!!!.

We hope that every year we see our Tricolor flag hoisted in the lush green ground of the Hill
crest! !!!JAI HIND!!!
