Few things can match the joy of designing a banner/poster for a Heartfelt Wish!
And when you are creating something for your beloved motherland, your heart is bound to be filled with warmth, love & pride!
Having studied in a historic Gandhian school, many of whose trustees were freedom fighters and whose foundation was laid by none other than Sardar Patel himself, the flag salutation ceremony on Republic day used to be an extra-ordinary affair every year. And it still holds enormous emotional & nostalgic value in my heart.
Seeing the magnificent Tricolor fluttering high in air, gave this pure kind of thrill as a school going girl then, and now… it gives these inexplicable goosebumps!
On important occasions, I try and make it a point to create wish banners from Lensdepictions, for everyone to use and share freely.
On Republic day (and so, on the Independence Day) we remember and thank the heroes of our Independence struggle, and our brave-heart soldiers protecting our nation day and night.
That gratitude is inevitable, and necessary.
But in that overwhelming feeling, more often than not, we forget the awesome responsibility we have on our own shoulders, the fact, that in the present day, we too…have to be Heroes for our motherland, and it is no one else but us, who can make a difference today!
Mahatma Gandhi said –
“We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.”
Well, so, as I started to design the Republic Day wish banner, I thought it would be better to remind this to myself and all those whom I want to wish on this glorious day.
Feel free to download, save and share it, on 26th Jan of 2017 and all the countless coming 26th January too!
Our Republic Day is eternal! :)
So, what do you think? Are you ready to be a Hero for your motherland? :)
For creating this banner,I have used one of my vibrant seamless pattern designs.
Speaking of being a hero yourself,
I can’t help but to share with you this incredible song – “Man In The Mirror”, one of my all time favorites from Michael Jackson…
