India's Independence

What is Freedom?

Independence. More you think about it, more the meaning of the word gets bigger. Talk without fear, live without fear, walk without fear, live happily in a society / state/ country is what we mean by independence. Racism is not officially allowed in an independent country.

Now, India is celebrating 60 years of its independence. Everybody seems to be happy. But how much happy we should be? Do we really feel happiness? What is our achievement in sports? What is our ranking in football? How many times we obtained gold in Olympics? Indians are cricket crazy. When last we won worldcup cricket contest? After so many years of independence we got one Vishwanathan Anand (chess), one Sania Mirza ( tennis ) and some national heroes who shine in international games of less importance.

In IT ( information technology ) we have good manpower. How many global software Indians have patent? How many Indian IT companies have same standard like their international counterparts? Indian corporate world still lacks good number of CEOs. Still our best talents prefer to study abroad and they try to live in foreign countries. Our great researchers in the field of science and technology don’t get enough monetary aid for their research work. Our major exams’ question papers get out in the market before the exam.
dates. There is no leader like Bapuji or Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose by whose calls the whole nation can be awakened. Politicians are dishonest , media is partial. Is that what our politicians / freedom fighters had dreamt 60 years ago?

Movies like Rang De Basanti and Chak De India inspire us. Gandhigiri from Munnabhai MBBS stimulates us. But where is the ultimate reflection in our activities? Sixty years after, our major cities like Kolkata and most part of the rural India doesn’t have enough infrastructure to reflect the picture of a truly developing country.

We boost off of our freedom. But do we have freedom of safety? Today anybody can be killed anywhere. Where is our financial freedom? How many people are jobless? Those who get their jobs, among them, how many of them get their salaries as per their level of efficiency and skill? Don’t you think that with poverty, ignorance, illiteracy and individual financial crisis, the meaning of the word Freedom remains incomplete? Think about it and then celebrate sixty ‘golden’ years of independence.
