Happy 77th Independence Day! Jai Hind!


To our fellow Kiwanians,

In the spirit of India's commemoration of its 77th Independence Day, this auspicious occasion not only marks a significant chapter in India's history but also serves as a poignant reminder of the values and aspirations to continue our collective journey toward fostering positive change and making a lasting impact on the lives we touch.

Independence Day encapsulates the essence of freedom – the freedom to dream, to innovate, and to shape our destinies. It is a day that celebrates the unwavering spirit of resilience and determination that courses through the veins of a great nation. Just as India's forefathers fought tirelessly to secure their freedom, we, as members of the Kiwanis family, have also pledged ourselves to a noble cause – the service of our communities and the empowerment of our fellow citizens.

The parallels between the spirit of Independence Day and the mission of Kiwanis are undeniable, Kiwanis strives to illuminate lives by alleviating suffering, promoting education, and nurturing the potential of every individual. Our commitment to service reflects the same unyielding spirit that guided our nation to break the chains of subjugation.

As we hoist the flag of India, let us also raise the banner of Kiwanis high, for we are united by a shared purpose – the betterment of our society and the empowerment of our fellow citizens. Let us continue to write a story of service that echoes the sentiments of Independence Day – a story of selflessness, determination, and commitment to making a positive impact.

Happy Independence Day to our fellow Kiwanians in India District! May the spirit of service guide us as we strive to create a better and more inclusive tomorrow.

Yours in Kiwanis,
