Though India became a free nation on August 15, 1947, it declared itself a Sovereign, Democratic and Republic state with the adoption of the Constitution on January 26, 1950.

Shallow aspirations, masked apprehensions, callow words, stories told. ♥ Trials or tribulations, finessed or artless, but naivety is better than regrets, experience does teach that. ♥ It's time to celebrate, the victory of words, over mindless reservations, and mundane adversities. ♥♥♥ BadBookthief completed 4 years today. ♥♥♥ The beginning was harrowing.
