Independence-D true Meaning

15th August 1947, a day of pride and honour for each and every person who classifies himself as an Indian,As it Is celebrated as the day of India's Independence.

Independence,freedom,aazadi there are many terms that i can classify having the same meaning, the meaning of freedom,of release.But is it only a days celebration, only a formality for people, well i know people might think why i am so negative but truely am an optimist, a well wisher, a helper and i play many other roles in my day to day life.

Just a day before independence i see people buying the Indian flag in various forms like stickers, pins and many in the exact flag manner & just the next day after 15th august i see flags lying on the ground all torn and tattered, and people stepping on the flag, and infact i even see these candy filled flags comming now of which the kids eat of the candy and dump the flag into the dustbin. Well not every Indian must be having the spirit, the true spirit to fight for his country but i think for the people who actually fought for this independence, for those who didnt think even once for there own and fought for the common good, for those who gave there lives for this holy purpose it certainly is a matter of disrespect it is an anniversary of indian independence but people today are enjoying freedom at every instance , every day then why is it so difficult to not step on the flag, and not buy a flag only for the sake of the candy in it.

There can be even better ways of celebrating this independence day , maybe visit a village , or maybe make donations for a nobel cause, or maybe the money you spend on buying flags that you end of dumping the next day you can feed the hungry with it, even vollentiearing for helping in a hospital or maybe entertaining children in a blind school. Why is it that we celebrate independence for our ownself whereas we as such have made no contribution in it.

i even see really rich people travelling in there A.C cars and honking away to glory , because they have the independence to do so, people in big cars talking on the phone while driving hitting someone and not bothering to help after all they have independence, in the name of unity people start up donation camps and keep that money for there own good. but i definately do not think it is this independence we are actually referring to, i do not think it is this unity that we want.

I think every Indian should make an effort to make this a better place to live in and this can be done with the help of that independence.I think today we are not fighting against the british but we sure are fightin against a lot of issues the top most being the government and then terrorism.This is where we need to use terms like independence and Unity.

Jai Hind !!! Jai bharat..!!!
