15th August 1947. Yes, that was the day when a nation was finally freed from the clutches of those cruel Britishers of that time. I don't want any hard feelings to be there between me and my British friends. It's not your fault and i am not accusing you or anything. It's just that your ancestors and old generation people enslaved and tortured my old generation people. Then, after years of struggling and fighting, THEY earned freedom for us. And now my new generation people are torturing and enslaving us (future generation people) just like it happened before 1947. So, i don't blame the Britishers but ourselves for the condition we are in.
I wanted to write about the most important day in our Indian history and the way we Indians celebrate it. But i think it's really unfair to write and lie about what's not actually there. And that too especially, FREEDOM. We are the largest democratic country but not the largest independent country. I wouldn't call this country as a free country or i must say, it's nowhere near the so called word "freedom". But let's see...
Today is celebrated as my country, INDIA'S, Independence Day. After 200 years of slavery under the British rule, we achieved our freedom on this very day in 1947. Well, many people know about us, who we are and who we were. What was our struggle and pain at those times are known to everyone but hardly anyone realizes it as their own. That's the reason, why this country is still developing and not a fully developed nation.
My most favourite freedom fighter and my idol is Mr. Bhagat Singh. This man was, is and will be my hero and a LEGEND forever. He played a very important role in the freedom struggle besides Mahatma Gandhi and others. There were two kinds of people in the war against the foreigners. One was the non-violent type like Gandhiji, Nehru and others. And another was the fighting type like Shubash Chandra Bose, Chandrashekar Azad and Bhagat Singh. Now, Bhagat died at the age of 23 but his works still ignite the fire in the hearts of many to fight.
It's sad to write like this on this special day rather than writing about the glories of my country. But still i'm proud of my country and love it very much. The only thing i hate is the government that runs the nation. Hope people realize and bring the change and i'm with them too forever.
