This Independence Day, I got a chance to participate in Cycle Rally in Gwalior. Tiranga rally held on National Festivals like Republic Day and Independence Day annually where cyclists can participate and show their love and respect to their motherland ‘India’.
It was a cloudy day, We all gathered at Old High Court Square at 6:30 pm. It was a great surprise to see that almost all cyclists were colored in patriotism. The tricolor was visible everywhere in the city. Patriotic songs and slogans like भारत माता की जय “Long live Mother India” and वंदे मातरम “I praise thee, Mother” were boosting up our enthusiasm.
