Thank you guys, for making The Quint’s Republic Day campaign #LetterToIndia such a big hit last year! We were overwhelmed by your responses and this encouraged us to revive the campaing this year in the renewed context of Good Indian Bad Indian.

Tell India who you truly are – Are you a good Indian or a bad Indian? And what do you think we need to do to qualify as good Indians?

You know the drill. So what are you waiting for? Send a postcard from your heart and we’ll make sure India hears you out.

And if you still have some confusion on how to go about it, here’s one of the many letters written to India from last year.

The khiladi of Bollywood Akshay Kumar is known for being the rough and tough action-man in the industry. This time, however, he has decided to show his softer side and has a heart-warming request for India.

Dear India,

There will be a lot of people who will divide you by religion, caste and other things. Be a true Indian and a good human being and that's all that matters.

Jai Hind,

Love and Prayers,

– Akshay Kumar
