As we celebrate 60 years of freedom on August 15, I want to religiously ask my friends & colleagues in this forum whether have we gained anything worthwhile. R we still not dependant on somebody or the other countries in anything and everything?? I am asking to those Senior Citizensn this generation to tell me frankly your views whether prior to independence they were happy or whether this generation is happy with ongoing govt and their policies ?? Have we gained or lost many values in this?? Comment
I have never know what it is to be ruled by another country and be their slave. My grandmother has told me how life was like under the British rule though and from what I have read in History books my opinion is:
"Thank YOU all for having sacrificed so much so that we your children have FREEDOM"
Its better to be ruled by your own crooks then be a slave to a benevolent manster.
I have freedom. I don't have to worry that tomorrow if I criticize my Govt I will be jailed.I don't have to worry that tomorrow to feed the millions in the ruler's country my children will have to go without grain.
My progress contributes to the GDP of my country and I do not have to worry that if its going to affect my master my right to production will be taken away.
Yes, in the global settings we are all dependent economically in some way or the other but it is not servitude.
God Bless Free India and all Indians.
Yes we failed to check the population growth otherwise our picture would have been much rosier.We hardly had any industry worth a mention then look today where we are.The world recognises our enormous effort but we do not!
we don't remember how many sacrifices were given for it
we don't realsie its important,we take it for granted
our freedom fighters had a vision for free INDIA ,
but we have lost that vision,
although we have progressed in some senses but not as our great visinaries had wanted us to,we all are more worried about our rights than realising our duties
and all this is due to our weak politicians,actually we are responsible for it
bcoz these so called leaders are a part of our society itself.
so we have to change the system no superman or shaktiman wil come to save us
also we always dicuss this issue but we should ask ourselves have we done anything abou it???????or this is just a 'intresting' topic for discusion ????? ...more
