Himachal Statehood Day

The memories of January 25, 1971 are still fresh in my mind when I along with thousands of others was a witness to the celebrations, function and the public rally addressed by Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. She arrived the venue seated mounted on a slow moving vehicle , head covered with a shawl, smiling, also shaking off snow flakes, as it had started snowing.She was accompanied by Dr. Y. S. Parmar, the Chief Minister.
Today the State has come of age, celebrating 46th anniversary of the momentous event.
This side the sole credit goes to Dr. Y.S.Parmar , rightly called ' Himachal Nirmata' for making this possible through his sincere efforts.
Happy Statehood Day !
