August, 2008 -Olympics and much more

Simple, this month is special to me –

1. "Abhinav Bindra has etched his name into his India’s sporting history after he became his country’s first individual Olympic gold medallist."

 

2. 15th of August is Independence day in India –

This was preceded by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru‘s famous speech titled Tryst with destiny.

“At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance….. We end today a period of ill fortune, and India discovers herself again."

 

3. It’s our bday in August – I mean my Wife and myself

 

Need I say more.  It’s been very GOOD
