The 5 things I am Thankful for about my Country –

  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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!)
  4. 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’.
  5. 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!
