India Independence Day – Revive the Fighting Spirit
Every Indian obtainable knows that the USA has done independence from the British rule on August 15, 1947, and this year marks the 62nd yr of independence! Many people also recognize from the history books in our schools the recorded sacrifices that have been made to regain the sovereignty of our motherland! Equally familiar is the reality that in this day U. S. A. Celebrates this landmark fulfillment in its typical standard and colorful methods! The National flag is hoisted inside the countrywide capital of New Delhi, and at the diverse kingdom capitals and union territories. The Prime Minister lists the achievements of U. S. A . Since the closing Independence Day, increases the current and important domestic and sometimes worldwide troubles, and urges fellowmen to come together to resolve it! Various cultural activities are held, and special shows to honor the martyrs and the surviving freedom fighters are staged. And so some other Independence Day quietly comes to an end, the very day our forefathers and extremely good leaders of pre-independent India dreamt of. But for us, it’s far just any other country-wide excursion, a mere show of pomp, special shows on television, the whole thing however an event to celebrate the spirit of independence, and relive and revive the spirit of fighting!
Why ought to we fight these days? And towards whom? Or what is there to fight for? Well, in my opinion, we should ask ourselves why we’ve stopped the fight! After all, we have such a lot of nagging troubles, massive and small, round us! Isn’t? Unfortunately, nowadays we’ve got ‘learned to live’ with those problems and so long as they do not ‘critically’ make a dent on our private lives, we just do not care! But have we ever puzzled wherein we went wrong! I know this will kick begin the blame sport! There is corruption, red-tapism that slows down development, and there aren’t any correct politicians, no leaders, no imaginative and prescient, no assets, and so on! But can we also understand that we too are chargeable for this dismal scenario? Everyone knows that there can not be an alternate in a single day however I wish we will agree that there needs to be a few beginning someplace!
Independence vs freedom
What is independence and what’s freedom? For maximum people, political independence is freedom enough! The term ‘independence’ and the sense of ‘being impartial’ has outshined the freedom warfare fought by way of our leaders and countrymen. What they sought became an impartial India and more than that the ‘freedom’ to control ourselves and to be dictated by some overseas force! Sadly, we’ve executed the political independence but only a few degrees of real freedom. Real freedom is what will flip our u. S. Right into a sturdy and united India! And each one people ought to be preventing for it now!
Take for instance the personal freedom, a freedom that can be exercised with the aid of one character without violating the opposite individual’s freedom. In a nutshell, the freedom to express my views, do my very own matters without hurting others’ sentiments, and emotions and sentiments. It is a part of the civil liberties that defend a person from the authorities of the living state setting limits for it so that it can’t abuse its power and intervene unduly with the lives of its citizens. Now how lots of us can proudly say that we enjoy whole private freedom in our ‘unbiased’ USA?! I am now not questioning here the rights of the government in upholding the law of the land or punishing the responsible and increasing safety to its citizens. Every government has the right to do this! But that is greater about the apathy, of the government and a few individuals and organizations, inside the name of caste, religion, subculture, and gender that immediately or not directly violates my personal freedom to specific my views or do my personal matters! It is a real understatement that handiest a select few have private freedom that’s best misused in limiting the liberty of others. There are more unwritten and unspoken laws being followed right here than the standard written ones on bound books, which are almost never followed! Many of our laws are most effective ‘said’ in the proper spirit but now not ‘accomplished’ inside the right way.
Rights are not allowed to be absolutely exercised
Similarly, we do now not completely enjoy the civil rights, social rights, cultural rights and the rights to pleasant health, first-class schooling, and protection to name some. Even the right to vote has frequently been no longer allowed to exercise within the manner we need it to, and useless to mention the right to training is dictated by castes and money! Quality health services are denied to many. Everything comes with a heavy fee tag! There can be numerous reasons for this however regrettably our ‘muted mumbles’ is only making matters worse!
How many of us can proudly say that we experience these kinds of rights to the fullest! Right from getting a start certificates for our toddlers, to admissions in schools and colleges, and to get the roles that we deserve, we compromise on everything. This compromise is not ‘ahimsa’ that Mahatma Gandhi stood for; this is standard ‘meek’ surrendering to the apathy of the few bad factors in the society! Of path, there can be a very few available who might have no longer skilled the apathy of the officers at some point in time! But it is handiest a handful of the population! A majority of us are nonetheless in the dark about our rights even on regular troubles! Even after 62 years of self-governing independent India, we can’t get to exercise our rights and get matters finished in the way it ought to be accomplished! Superficially, India has improved leaps and bounds in lots of fields. The high-quality of existence has improved however unluckily the pleasant of ‘residing’ has no longer! Many of us do now not even recognize that in a few elements of U. S. A ., a ways from our busy towns and our so-referred to as social recognition, a few human beings are nonetheless fighting for some simple things, now not with the British Empire but with the Indian authorities.
Wake up, India!
It is startling that we’ve got didn’t understand the gravity of the scenario we’re in. Or is it like we’ve meekly surrendered to the authentic apathy and gone numb to issues around us? Or is it definitely because we’ve got lost the spirit of preventing that our leaders and hundreds of thousands of residents in pre-impartial India displayed against the British? Maybe, it is a chunk of all of them. The freedom struggle for impartial India become no longer scripted by way of Gandhi and Nehru and different leaders on my own, there have been millions of people who stood up at that point to fight. The only reason changed into they wanted to be the masters of their very own future, to assist themselves and the country, the unmarried most essential character that each one folk is lacking nowadays! What we want today is freedom, freedom across all spectrums and at all ranges and the political Indian Independence Day 2019 is best only a beginning. If this happens, India can be an actual force to reckon with!
