Indian Independance Day Celebrations @ CSS Mumbai

“At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance. It is fitting that at this solemn moment we take the pledge of dedication to the service of India and her people and to the still larger cause of humanity.”

Jawaharlal Nehru, Independence Day Speech (1947)

Cake cutting on the 22nd was done by Chandrakala (CK), Director Ocean freight operations in the office and on 25th it was done by T S Kaladharan, Chairman of CSS Group.
