As far as present unity goes- a Chinese invasion would be nice. That's the only way we're going to unite.

And as far as freedom fighters go, there are 2 camps. Freedom fighters and freedom "fighters." Most of the former category, who genuinely wanted India to prosper & cared for it like a family member joined the ranks of the INA. The ones not too determined (except for leaders like Bapuji, Chachaji etc) joined the other camp.

Not saying SC Bose was "better" than Bapuji or "worse" but just the fact that as per SC Bose's organization, a fraud won't be able to make it thru- because it was a combat outfit, which only saw frontline action, and not so much "discussions."

India was a concept,however vague-but never a physical unity for most of its history.We just got freedom and did not really fight for it.Even in fighting outside elements,we were never united.In war with China,the communists were partisans of china, not India.In indo-pak were,we had same disunity now on religious basis.We have proved time and again that we are better ruled by someone tough.We had SWATANTRA and not SWAADHEENATA.If you are proud of something INdian,your neighbour says,he is ashamed of it.With growng lawlessness and immorality and dwindling social values,really God only can save this country from enemies within.

Of course it was.. why do you think our country got partitioned ? If the leaders did not have separatist tendencies then we would still be Akhand Bharat.
As for the present the leaders in the name of vote banks politics have divided the nation , and let us not be squeamish about that, on the basis of caste, creed, religion and language.
