Patriotism personified

It was a sunday and I was trying to study for a certification exam, but could not concentrate for long. I had to do something to keep myself awake - I went back to my bookshelf and found this badge that I had got as a memento for taking part in the Delhi Half Marathon. I brought it over to the table and tried balancing it over the pen and other stuff kept on the table - thats when the idea of clicking this pic struck me. Did some work on the image - selective B&W, as can be seen. I feel it focuses the attention more on the flag. The laws in India about wearing the national flag are more stringent compared to western countries. Thats what makes me cherish this badge more - it definitely is one memento that'll stay with me for the rest of my life. Jai Hind
