An ocassion to feel proud of being an Indian - such ones has indeed become rare these days. Living in a squalid, over-crowded town and cursing everyone possible for the mess, I could not believe when tears started rolling down my cheeks as our flag went up and the national anthem started playing in Beijing. It was a moment of truth. I watched as the screen became hazy with tears of joy and pride and a new realisation. Go India go!
