#ThankfulThursdays – Thankful for your Country
The Country I belong to is India. And I am a proud citizen!
The 5 things I am Thankful for about my Country –
- Freedom – Of Choice
I can choose my Life, my Lifestyle, the people in my life and the work I do. I can change my mind, and choose a different life! A different thing to do!
- Freedom – Of Voice
I can VOICE my opinion, I can speak up, stand up and take a stand for my beliefs, my principals and against any wrong I see happening in society.
- Entertainment – Bollywood and Television series
I LOVE my Bollywood! Take me to a movie, give me salt & caramel popcorn – & I am your friend for Life! (& keep doing that on-repeat!)
and I love my T.V. serials (for those of you who think, that, that only means ‘kyunki saas bhi kabhi bahu thi’, NewsFlash – There is much more programming available on T.V these days! Even Ekta Kapoor has diversified!)
- Marriage of Culture with Modernism –
I Love that we are modern, progressive and in tune with the world! and at the same time, are still in touch with our roots, our culture, our ‘sabhyata’.
- People of our Country –
While we are different and diverse (regions, cultures, habits & even religions), the one thing which unifies all Indians is their warm hearts. Every where I have gone, I have found, an Indian will treat you to the welcome and warmth of the Indian Hospitality, complete with coercing (forcing) you to over-eat, and un-ending cups of Tea and ‘aur-batao’ (Tell me more) conversations.
What are the 5 things that you are Grateful for? Leave me a comment!
If you want to debate the TV serials – let me know, I would be happy to wax lyrical on their entertainment value!
