It is that time of the year when emotions and passions run high. The nation comes out and bleeds green, celebrating with full enthusiasm and fervor. But this 14th August instead of just going out on the streets creating noise pollution, do something worthwhile for the benefit and betterment of our country. We at Brides&You make a list of 10 things you could do to celebrate this joyous occasion the right way!

2) Clean your street, inviting neighbors to do the same
3) Take flags, jhandis, badges and gifts for children in orphanage homes and hospitals. You’ll be glad you did so!
4) Volunteer at an old age home and try documenting their partition stories. You’ll be surprised at the ordeals these people overcame for Pakistan during that era.
