Well, first thing is , its a holiday. Truthfullly, its the first real break i've had in such a long time. They said there will be flag hoisting in out uty campus by our VC, but its like 2 hours away from home, so i didnt go. Back in school, we used to love going to school to hoist the flag, sing the national anthem, and attend the cultural programs they had, and even join some. I was so relieved to get a holiday from my 7:00 Am to 7:00 PM life in campus, that i forgot why it was for. Well, my old school priciples phoned me up to wish me, so i remembered. I think day by day, people who wont be employed in govt jobs will forget the day's importance... I hope i dont. Like today was bad reaction.
