The Republic Day Parade keeps alive the memories of my Indian Army Service from September 1969 to January 1984.
Rajahmundry,East Godavari District,Andhra Pradesh, India is my native place. I spent only a few years of my life and yet those few years have connected me to the traditions of India and have inspired a sense of Nationalism. I take pride in the fact that Kandukuri Veeresalingam Pantulu garu is a native of Rajahmundry. He still lives in our collective memories.
The Land of India is described in India’s National Song known as ‘Vande Mataram’. The tradition states that Indians are known for speaking in a pleasant manner without being rude or offensive and provide a sense of pleasure to their listeners with good and sweet words. Indian Identity is defined by Speech Mannerisms, and Speech Etiquette.
