    For those of us who grew up in India, there was always a neighbor, uncle or aunty who knew English better than the rest. This person was contacted for things like college application or cover letter. Many August's ago, I was writing a speech to give in school for Independence Day and one such uncle gently corrected some calendar numbers in my speech.

    The Government of India has explained the same in this recent document:
    "India will complete 75 years of Independence on August 15 2022
    O
    but India will celebrate the 76th Independence Day."

    Do something this month that will make India proud. The patriotic in my gardening group make flags using orange, white and green flowers and leaves from their backyard. I will be happy to doodle an India flag with color pencils.

    Happy August, folks. And a Happy 75 years of Independence to India and to all of us.

    A request:
    When you nominate a post, please try to post the link to the nominated post only, not a link to the entire page or the last post in that thread.

    To get the nominated post's link, right click on the post number in the top right of the post, and "copy link address."

    Thank you.

    My first nomination is @hrastro 's response to my question about filter coffee. Anyone who has any interest related to the filter coffee this is a must read:

    I am also compelled to nominate @Thyagarajan 's response which is very next to @hrastro and one can feel the joy in @Thyagarajan 's vivid descriptions ( if you are not able to get your hands on filter coffee, read his post instead and some of your cravings will hopefully subside )

    Filter Coffee

    Dear Brother thanks for those nice words. It is a good thought that reading about making °coffee is a near substitute while craving mounts up.
