From the Director ….

January 25, 2021

On behalf of all of us at the Durga Das Foundation and Strawberry Fields, wishing each one of you a happy Republic Day. It is a momentous feeling to live in a free country where we can exercise our free will, exercise our choices, form opinions and follow our path. Let us take a moment to thank all those who laid down their lives to give us a free country.


It maybe a good idea to watch the live parade that is beamed from Rajpath on the morning of the 26th. In the days prior to mobile phones and multi-channel television, we would love to snuggle up in our quilts, park ourselves in front of our black and white television sets and feel a patriotic surge as we watched the march past and the different state “jhankis”. These were a window to our world, and the rest of the country. Even today, you will see just how diverse and culturally rich we are. Let’s celebrate this and more.


Best wishes,

Atul Khanna
