It’s a privilege to belong to India, a country that prides itself on its rich heritage, strong spiritual core and deep love and tolerance for people of every race and religion. These feelings were internalized to the extent that it was at the very root of the design of the Indian flag (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_India ):
“Bhagwa or the Saffron denotes renunciation or disinterestedness. Our leaders must be indifferent to material gains and dedicate themselves to their work. The white in the centre is light, the path of truth to guide our conduct. The green shows our relation to the soil, our relation to the plant life here, on which all other life depends. The “Ashoka Chakra” in the centre of the white is the wheel of the law of dharma. Truth or satya, dharma or virtue ought to be the controlling principle of those who work under this flag.”
– Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, First Vice President and second President of India.
