15th August 1947: What a day that would have been

Just read an article:"25 Days that changed India" in this issue of The Week. Somehow the following incident has stirred me. It writes about 15th August 1947:
The national flag had been raised at the War Memorial at India Gate in the evening."Just as the flag was unfurled, light rain began to fall," wrote Alan Campbell-Johnson, Mountbatten's Press Secretary."And a rainbow appeared in the sky, matching the saffron, white and green of the flag. If Hollywood had added that last touch, we would all have complained that once again they were overdoing it."

Thats an interesting name you have chosen for a post- don't you think "what a country India could have been" would also be equally appropriate.
