What I like about the R-Day line-up is its focus on children. As my friend Ujjal put it, Mantri parents are requested to bring their children along. No speeches to bore them.Organisers offer sweets instead. There is more to R-Day than speeches and flag-raising. It is about celebrating Indian-ness. Communities such as Mantri's help us develop a conducive mindset. Events such as Pongal, Christmas, and R-Day provide us with a pretext to come together as a community - as Mantrivasis, rather than as Madarasi, Marathi or a Malyalee, Bihari, or Bengalee.
