Happy Anniversary

India's 60th Anniversary demands to be celebrated. It's an amazing country with an amazing people whose influence stretches far beyond its borders. I have never visited, but it's on my list. Anyway, congratulations to India and also Pakistan, although that country's success is arguably a little more distant at present.

I can't recall any recent western pop songs that have offered a tribute to this country, so I'll have to rely on two from around the time of the 20th Anniversary in 1967...
It's incredible to think that this music is now older than many modern countries!
