Happy Republic Day to all of my fellow Indians! As we celebrate freedom and remember the day Constitution of India came to effect, let us remember multiple aspects related to this freedom.
People like Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, the father of Indian Constitution who later decided to exercise his freedom to practice any religion of his choice and converted to Buddhism. He reminded us that no one is born in to this world with a religion, but accepts one religion or other when he/she grows.
Selfless service of people like Graham Staines who left his home land to serve poor people of India and cost of such love to a forsaken people.
The Supreme Court of India, which expunged some remarks relating to conversion and Graham Staines work and upheld the essence of constitution
The freedom of religion we have here in this land when many other lands gone through numerous challenges to freedom.
Just a day before we celebrate Republic Day, The document foundation announced LibreOffice 3.3, new fork of popular free OpenOffice.org, thus declaring freedom of choice in matters of software options outside the grip of software corporations.
New features of LibreOffice
