It’s the 75th Independence Day. I did not have any plan to pen down my thoughts, but a lot of things happening around me made me wonder. So, I couldn’t help but capture it. Today, I watched a reality show where the army men, the protectors of our country, were so filled with pride when they were telling how they fought for our country. There was so much respect and gratitude in everybody’s eyes for them. But I realized it is only on Independence Day and republic day that we remember the armed forces and the freedom fighters. And then again, we go on to lead our selfish and self-centered life. Our whole life we think of our career, property, and money. And that we do in the name of our family, we say we are saving and earning money for our near and dear ones for their safe future.
We Indians got freedom from a long stretch of imperialism 73 years ago. Though colonialism bid adieu to us long back the habit of being followers still lingers within us.
