Gift from my cab driver in Delhi. Scroll down to see my ancestor’s and Tanjore paintings displayed at Delhi National Museum.

Yesterday my cab driver gifted me this stunning gold-plated Indian national flag brass lapel pin. He pinned it on my chest with pride. I asked him the reason… He told Independence Day is coming in few days and yesterday (5/8/2019) article 370 had been revoked and J & K has become a part of our country. He seemed to be a true Desh bhakth. I thanked him and after dropping me at the Delhi airport, he told to keep this flag as a remembrance of my stay in Delhi and also told me that this historical bill was passed when i was here in Delhi as their guest (he was indicating the co incidence). His devotion towards our country was admirable. We ended our conversation after saying “JAI HIND, JAI BHARATH”.
