HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY
Every one is so happy,
Its our Independence Day Celebration.Few are celebrating it by singing patriotic songs, hosting flags and socializing, greeting each other. Few are celebrating by wearing the small flag, and few will celebrate later collecting them tomorrow from the ground.
Yeah this is the day where we try hard to remember the forgotten Heroes of our country, whom we have seen just in images, heard about them from family friends, may be few have their grand pa's participated in Freedom fighting. They have done so much for the country that they gave up their lives for our freedom, for US, For the LOVE.
Hats off to them, I wonder from where they had so much courage, so much fearlessness, So much Love and Value for the country.
But I often ask, are we really even worthy of celebrating them, do we posses single bit of value and love which they had it and can feel the pride with the same strength, as they have gone through when they were laughing at the face of death, Just for the country?
Hats off guys I am Happy but evenly sad about the hypocrisy in us, that we can just make your monuments, we will put loads and loads of flower on it, turn the lamp on, every year and stand silently moaning for your sacrifices for few moments, followed by our "राष्ट्रगान " some "बूंदी के लड्ड़ु " and over.... Yes it is over, that's what we have been doing ... Everyone will do it, yeah we are coming from the place where IDOLS are much stronger than IDEALS, We just want to own the country like we own our religion, family, children, parents, parent's property and even Gods, so why not country. No matter what we do for it. We are born in this land, why we need to prove our worthiness to it? No matter there is still Poverty, pain and misery, Inequality, Cast ism and Corruption.
Speaking of corruption, everyone will agree that corruption is bad but when it comes to doing something about it, then we are indifferent. Why? because we are weak, we need some money and power to sustain the family better, so " थोड़ा बहुत ऊपर नीचे हुआ तो क्या ? चलता है यार " and we expect our leaders to be non-corrupt and can gossip for hours about our country and their deeds. And give ज्ञान on Ideal! yeah Ideal.. Make all Ideals Idol and worship them, since we are all weak and pathetic and we all need to worship, vote or run after some BABAs or Priests for their blessings. And since we are weak, we have license to do a bit of corruption, a bit of lie, small bit of family violence, bit of Eve tease, Discrimination and Male dominance is our birthright. Its all OK we are not saints and Gurus we are just common man ,weak man who needs strong leaders. We just want to "Celebrate Independence". "स्वाधीनता " स्व-अधीनता (Really:D)!! Yeah yeah who cares we will celebrate.That's all we can do. Yeah if something wrong happens particularly to our family, to us or our closed ones, then surely everyone can see what courage we have, what strength we have and can also see to what extent Love can go .... but why use our strengths,
"हमारा काम यह थोड़ी न है की हम गटर साफ़ करें, गन्दा काम कौन करेगा ?" हम वोट किस लिए देते हैं? हम एक ज़िम्मेदार नागरिक हैं, हम टैक्स भरतें हैं और हम अकेले क्यों करें ?..... It is easier to fight and blame outsiders then to fight within.
So all the Freedom fighters, महा पुरुष , all Great men of the history its a sad news that we can only worship you and sorry to say we don't have so much strength as you had which made your suffering a joy. We don't have enough Love to give us courage, all we have is this, a praying and begging hands from the Huge Monuments of you, which we have built with so much pride.
So what ? we don't have values!!
But we can build Big Monuments, own it as our property, have faith on it and then get back to our daily routines. What else is needed except the blessings......Simple na.,,So.........
Have some fun yaar, don't be so serious.....
अरे थोड़ा सा हमने भी कर लिया तो क्या बड़ी बात है?
आदमी जीता किसके लिए है?
सब ठीक है यार जुगाड़ हो जायेगा टेंशन मत ले ....
Sure we are "स्वाधीन" स्व अधीन या "सिर्फ स्वयं के लिए"
Independent We are !!!
Happy Independence day
