60 years in 60 words

Inspired by this: A Briefer history of time. I thought I had read a similar one on India, but couldnt locate it (let me know if there is one) - Acorn had something similar a while back.

Freedom. Exhilaration. Kashmir Incursion. Integration. Republic formation. Linguistic division. Industrialization. IIT formation. Growth stagnation. Chinese aggression. Aksai Chin occupation. Green Revolution. LOC creation. Corruption. Emergency declaration. Democracy restoration. World cup acquisition. Punjab terrorization. Sensex popularization. Mandal commission. Reservation. Liberalization. Communal conflagration. Nuclear detonation. Kargil invasion. Media revolution. Y2K resolution. Outsourcing nation. Investment destination. Terrorism explosion. Leadership Inaction. 60 years completion.

Not sure if I got this entirely correctly, but wish you all a happy Independence day.

Very good. Now you can set this to the tune of "We didn't start the fire." :-)
