However, it also happens to be Indian Independence Day. Which means, despite all the horrors in the world, there is something to celebrate.
This video is a few years old, but gosh, it should put a smile on your face… even if you’re not Indian, even if you don’t know the Indian national anthem. Yes, she goes off-key once or twice, but she’s four (ok, was four).
So: happy birthday, India. May you prosper for centuries to come.
