on independence day

today is India’s independence day.
We all now wish happy independence day,but do we all think of the amount of blood and sweat that was split to achieve this?
The number of people who gave up everything in life,for the sake of the nation.It was there efforts which got us the freedom.Yet we have failed to grow out of the hangover after independence.
We still haven’t removed poverty,still no equality and still no peace without any internal politics and rebellions.Our nation still has a long way to go.As a nation it is still young,when the world was sleeping we became free,but as it dawns now,we still find manythings not complete.Yes we have cities as big as any in the world,but we have failed to take care of everyone in it.When there are rains ,we have floods,THE people who live in the streets are affected th most.While for the others,it maybe similar to a lite head ace.
What sense of pride does a person who live on the streets have for our country?for him he could have been better if he was in any other country.His life has been full of struggle and all he would want is respite from it.How do we promote a sense of patriotism in everyone and anyone?
It is obvious our country’s culture and heritage attracts everyone and those who visit it feel it is a “lovely country”.but how are we going to make India a “lovely country” to everyone?
Economically speaking it is a tantamount task.It is almost.Yes our resources are ,our pride and strength.but have we tapped them to the fullest potential? To do this ,we have to borrow other country’s technologies,but this is not going to be a solution,since becoming dependent is not we can afford.
We need to develop our own technologies,for this we will need to develop our education,bring everyone into the light and bring in more quality teachers.For this we need to remove the social stigma.The paradox which still keeps the society divided needs to be removed completely.For this again,we need to eliminate poverty and improve the standard of living.It would be easy enough to try and bring down the standard of living in cities,but this would need to more problems,in a way that the purchasing capacity of the people will increase and there won’t be enough goods,which will again push up the standard.It is left to us to com,e up with a solution.
btw,check out his poem which i have written on India –MY INDIA
