India's 67th Independence Day

Today is August 15th - it's a national holiday in India (though there still seem to be many people working - the shopping malls are crowded) to commemorate independence from British rule in 1947.  The independence movement in India was characterized by nonviolent resistance and civil disobedience.  And today, as a British citizen, I went to the garden in my apartment building to participate in the raising of the flag and singing the Indian national anthem.

I'm feeling a strong sense of karma - of being where I am supposed to be - of cause and effect and of reaping what I have sown.
