Every year, on 14th August, I spend the day out with my friends, and we go around the city noticing how people are observing this Independence day. From Mazar e Quaid, till Seaview, there are people and people and vehicles all decorated with national flag and sticker. People blowing horns in happiness and playing loud National Songs on the stereos. Everyone seems to be taking the joy of the independence flavor.
