Quit India

14th August the day of Pakistan independence and the day before the Indian independence.
August also commemorates the August Kranti or the quit India movement. Every Indian and his family worth a salt was out protesting. Processions of people could be seen. Forcing the British to quit the country.
Looks like we have not really forgotten it. It is the exodus time, the young Indians getting ready to quit India to sign up at the French, German or American universities for the fall term.(I hope I have got the term right.) doing their parents proud that they have achieved their place in a foreign university. You can see the processions now in front of the embassies forcing the authorities to let them quit India for what they imagine to be greener pastures.
Looks like they are converting their great grandparent’s words to reality.
”Quit India.”
