A flag is prerequisite for any nation. A flag is kind of worship which would be a sin to destroy. A flag says a lot about a country. A flag is not just a symbol, but a way for a country to portray itself to the rest of the world. A flag is a symbol of free nation.
Our national flag was hoisted in different parts of the country and worldwide on the occasion of Independence Day. As we know, the Indian national flag is a horizontal tricolor of deep saffron at the top, white in the middle and dark green at the bottom in equal proportion. National flag of India went through various changes to arrive at what it is today. Pingali Venkayya is credited with the design of Indian national flag. Here is short history about our national flag and its designer.
He was a prolific writer and a great patriotic freedom fighter. He was born to Hanumantha Raidu and Venkat Ratnamma in Krishna district of Andhra Pradesh on 2nd of August 1876. He was enthusiastic and had a patriotic zeal. He even enlisted himself for the Boer war at the age of 19. There he met Mahatma Gandhi in Africa. He finished his primary education at Challapalli and school at the Hindu High School, Masulipatnam. Later he went to Colombo in Sri Lanka to finish his Senior Cambridge.
The year from 1921-1931 formed a significant movement in Pingali Venkayys life. During this time he approached Gandhi with the flag. His flag was made of red and green. Which represented the countrys 2 major community.
Gandhis approval was all he needed. Later it was hoisted at all Congress session Hansraj of Jallandar, suggesting the representation of the Charkha, symbolizing progress and the common man in 1931. On July 22, 1947 the Charkha was replaced by Dharma Chakra of Emperor Ashoka as the emblem of the flag but the colors and their significance remained the same. In the national flag, the Saffron color indicated the strength and courage of the country. The white middle band represents the peace and truth with Dharma Chakra. The last green band shows the fertility, growth and auspiciousness of the land.
Unfortunately Pingali Venkayya died on 4th July in 1963 in Vijayawada district of Andhra Pradesh. His dedication and patriotism led him a recommendation to the highest civilian award in India The Bharat Ratna on 18th November 2012, by the govt of Andhra Pradesh.
He was a legend who deserves salute with all the respect.

As 90's kids, all of us have used fountain pens. For a lot of us, it was the first pen that we ever used. That was the same time when we were leaving pencils, to fill notebooks with, behind and learning how to use pens. This was also the time that we felt we have grown up a little. Young adults. There were kids in school who were junior to us. That is always such an empowering feeling, wasnt it?
Fountains pens came along a little problem. Erasers didnt work that efficiently anymore. A mistake was very visible on a notebook and so we practiced. Well, some of us did. We practiced to attain a page in the notebook without any mistakes and in the best handwriting possible.
Some of us took time out to pick the fountain pen best suited to our liking to produce the best results. (Yes, we have done it and we are proud of it.) We then took out time to write notes beautifully, getting each stroke of that perfect fountain pen right, so that sometimes even when the content wasnt so great, handwriting shall win. It was an art form for all of us and it was beneficial AF.
But now we live in a world where such pens have become a rarity! We are computer beings who write on their respective machines, which are available to them at all points of time, unlike a pen that is most likely not there. In an era of texting and stylists, I try my best to go back to using a fountain pen whenever I can. Nothing can ever match the joy of filling that ink pot.
As I end this romantic tale, Id like to share an inkling of a fabulous poet about what they feel about a fountain pen.
You kissed me on my cheeks
whispered a note on my lips
formed a letter on my neck
not a verse to my shoulder
and on my dcolletage
took such an age on a poem
penned to the energy of youth
it felt like you'd brought me
to write me on.
