Can’t help but feel like if this was an American protest it would have way more notes.
i’m tearing up.
I can count the times I’ve seen posts related to this on my dash on one hand.
If this was Britain or America I’m sure all the so called sj warriors would be shoving it down each other’s throats, and that makes me really upset.

Wishing all those celebrate it, a Happy Diwali. The Festival of Lights celebrates the triumph of good over evil, of Light over Darkness and so may the year ahead be flooded with light for you.
Aw man, look at Chennai all lit the fuck up. ♥ Was a happy Diwali for mine, hope it was for yours.

In honor of India’s Independence Day - August 15th
Bhagwa or the saffron colour denotes renunciation or disinterestedness. Our leaders must be indifferent to material gains and dedicate themselves to their work. The white in the centre is light, the path of truth to guide our conduct. The green shows our relation to (the) soil, our relation to the plant life here, on which all other life depends. The “Ashoka Chakra” in the centre of the white is the wheel of the law of dharma. Truth or satya, dharma or virtue ought to be the controlling principle of those who work under this flag. Again, the wheel denotes motion. There is death in stagnation. There is life in movement. India should no more resist change, it must move and go forward. The wheel represents the dynamism of a peaceful change. -Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan
2. I literally just now realized that Independence Day and Republic Day are two different things. We’re usually in India in January so I knew the latter was a thing, but apparently my husband dislikes Independence Day for long and convoluted reasons (that make perfect sense, but yes).
Still, happy Independence Day, India.
