Happy Independence Day (and who won the Giveaway?)

For whatever India is, it is magnificent  . Don’t you think? The colours, the people, the culture. Never know what to expect!!!

A friends facebook update reminded me of this poem and how apt it is for a day like today-

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
  Where knowledge is free 
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments 
By narrow domestic walls 
Where words come out from the depth of truth
  Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection 
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way 
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit 
Where the mind is led forward by thee  Into ever-widening thought and action 
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake 
~ Rabindranath Tagore~
Now, onto some exciting things! THE GIVEAWAY! I have to admit I was kind of worried about the response initially- would no one want to participate in our giveaway? Have people stopped reading the blog? Will I have to make up entries? Yes, I thought these things and its probably because we have been the worst bloggers in the world and have more giveaways than posts. Then when SO many of you entered, it made me happy beyond words ! Thank you for being awesome.  Picking the winners was no easy task but we had to choose someone and after much thought , our two winners are MEGHA SHARMA BHAGAT and MEENAKSHI KAPUR!  Congratulations to you both! You just won yourself a Ketchup bag each. Send us your addresses so we can you the bags ASAP.
Thank you Ketchup for being so terrific and here is hoping we have many more collaborations to come!
