MY COUNTRY INDIA

15th AUGUST- INDEPENDENCE DAY is a very special day for all Indians. I remember my school days, getting ready to school around 7.00AM, march pasting, listening short speech about our country, great leaders from chief guest, flag hosting followed by singing proudly our national anthem deep from our heart and finally getting chocolates from our teachers and get back to home. I really miss those days a lot. Now the time has run and currently am in US. Never mind am in US, Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani. Pooja of My Creative Ideas has come up with an interesting event ie Independence day theme for food. I present this post to our motherland.



I was in tensed mood what should I prepare for this event as its also important to prepare somthing which is of 4 colours. Also I dont want to miss this. Immediatly struck one idea and went on trying it. With the help of using ice tray, I thaught of presenting coloured ice cubes.


For Saffron colour which stands for courage, sacrifice, I used Fanta

For White colour represents unity, purity, Peace and truth, I used Milk.

For Blue colour refers to Ashoka chakra which represents the symbol of law and progess, I used blue gems chocolate.

For Green colour represents fertility and prosperity of the land, I used Palak gravy.

Hope u liked it.

A SHORT NOTE:

My Granny has posted a new article ''Fight for love'' in her blog. I am sure you would all love it.

Through spreading the message of love and peace, may our nation always bloom with happiness and prosperous.

Enjoy!!
