Sixty-five years ago today, India gained independence from the British Empire. Today was the first August 15 that I got to spend in India; I passed it in the city of Jaipur. As a citizen of another nation that celebrates its own independence from Britain, it was interesting to see how Indians celebrated their independence. I missed the morning flag-hoisting at SMS Stadium, but I did get to see some of the decorations around Jaipur. Here are a few of my pictures.
