We are Free indeed !!!!!!!

August 14, 2010

We are Free indeed !!!!!!!

We are lucky to be born in free India.

Thanks to some leaders, who were instrumental in India getting its independence from outsiders and placing it on the map of world’s map as a secular, socialist, democratic republic.

Actually why mention some leaders only, all our leaders including the present lot are responsible for our freedom.

Some from the clutches and rule of British regime.

And some helped us and still helping us by getting rid of values like honesty, integrity, patriotism, sincerity and truthfulness.

We no longer have to worry about ethics, religion, God, loyalty. These terms have become obsolete.

These words exists only in books so that our children are actually aware of their meaning but if they start looking for the presence of these values in present day world they sure will be disappointed .

We, the Indians are indeed fortunate to have such leaders who have seen to it that the citizens of India are not burdened with such heavy sounding words and their practice.

We are saved from taking tension about the righteous of our acts.

We can have sound sleep without our conscious pricking us for doing something which is not proper because these days anything and everything is proper.

A person who is honest, who believes in truth, who is dedicated to his work, who values his commitment to his profession and country is often laughed at. He is the one who is treated as an alien, he is the one who is singled out in public, and he is the one who is always standing all alone in the far away corner of the last row.

The only words that matters these days are MY SELF/ I/ MINE.

On this Independence day, I take this opportunity to thank all our leaders, politicians, all the officials and each and every citizen of my country for freeing me from the tight embrace of moral and spiritual values of honesty, integrity, truthfulness , patriotism and loyalty

I would also like to thank each and every one for inculcating in me, and all the generations to come values like corruption, cheating, selfishness, dishonesty etc.

But, for the role models present every where the future generations would have found it very difficult to adjust to the new era.

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY

    I couldn’t agree with you more.Corruption, lack of governance and not being accountable are the reasons why our present day netas choose to join politics.Time will tell as to what is in store for this country, but our netas have access to all the “store rooms”

    actually all these corruption, cheating, selfishness, dishonesty etc existed before also! that was the reason why East India Company gained such a strong foothold in India…because the divides existed already..they just drove in the wedge and widened them.
    Infact the opposition to slavery and desire to make one’s own rules and laws united people and we gained Independence. But basic nature remained same.
    and yes we are really free…unlike china where bloggers are monitored and can’t say a thing against the govt.

    Well said. I only hope that none of my family members become like our politicians…

    I agree with what Reema says.
    Corruption is a part of indian culture as back as we can look inour history. That accounts for upheaval, treachery and fall from grace of various empires and emperors/kings who deserved to lurk around a little longer :)

    But yes, it is also an inherent quality of Indians to set things right and improvise upon them.
    Someday, we will seee a dawn of new India with corruption being marginalised, I am sure such human qualities cannot be totally limited.

    I highly doubt whether the founding fathers would be really happy at India on its 63rd birthday, thanks to our Babus and Netas and most importantly the disconnected, disgruntled, disillusioned public.

    I think in spite of all our problems, we’ve done decently for a huge country only 63 years old with diverse populations and a democracy. We don’t really have a benchmark to compare India with cause there is no country like India!

    We often see other countries and compare. Like Japan and South Korea etc. But they are nothing like us. In some ways, we’re remarkably progressive. For example, it took the US 200 years to make discrimination based on skin color illegal in 1965. Texas decriminalized homosexuality only in 2003!

    We’ve lots to do and a long path ahead of us. But to find the courage to walk that path, we also need to see how far we’ve come. Only then will we have the faith necessary to take the journey.
