Indian sprinter Hima Das clinched her fourth gold of the fortnight as she won the 200m race with a creditable time in the Tabor Athletics Meet in Czech Republic on Wednesday.

Hima won in 23.25 seconds though the race had a mediocre field with most of the competitors representing clubs of Czech Republic. Nonetheless, she is inching closer to her personal best of 23.10. Hima’s compatriot V K Vismaya was second with a season best 23.43.

This was 19-year-old Hima’s fourth gold since July 2 when she ran her first competitive race in Europe. She has been keeping on improving since her first race.

In the men’s event also national record holder Muhammad Anas clinched the gold medal in 45.40 seconds in 400m race. Anas, on July 13, had won gold in the men’s 400m race as he clocked 45.21 seconds to bag the top honours at Kladno.

Hima’s pet event is 400m and she is yet to qualify for the World Championships in both the quartermile event and the 200m.

The World Championships qualifying time for 200m is 23.02 seconds, while it is 51.80 seconds in 400m.

Before August 15, 1947, we used to be slave citizens of slave India. It can be easily gauged how important freedom was to us after a period of long slavery of nearly 200 years.

Think about how beautiful that morning would have been for the people of our freedom when the declaration of independent India would have been made.

Let us introduce you to the era when the sun was shining with full aura in independent India for the first time.

On this day, the first Prime Minister of the country, Jawaharlal Nehru, stood on the Red Fort and told the country about the independence of the country.

At that time thousands of people gathered at the Red Fort. For the first time on this day, the flag of India was hoisted on the Red Fort instead of the British flag.

Once upon a time, see a few select pictures of the first morning of India’s independence.
