INDIA since independence

India was a British colony. It earned its independence from the British on 15/08/1947. Day before that Pakistan which was created as a result of partition of British India was established and flanked on two sides of India: West Pakistan which is called today Pakistan, and east Pakistan, now an independent state called Bangladesh. After its independence, the political leaders of India adopted the liberal democratic system for the country. Since its independence, India has transformed a lot. When India attained independence in 1947, its population was around 400 million people. Now there are billion people in India. India is the largest democracy in the world. It has the biggest number of people with franchise rights and the largest number of political parties, which take part in election campaign. Before its independence, India was never a single country but a bunch of different entities. Many predicted that India, because of diversities in its cultures, religion, languages, castes, manners, local histories, nationalities and identities, would not survive as a single democratic country, but would break up into smaller countries. Since independence, India had many political problems. During independence the most burning issues were the riots between the Hindus and Muslims while the Sikhs were siding with Hindus. Another issue was convincing the Princely states not to declare independence or join Pakistan but to join the Indian Union. India also had a few wars with its neighbors on border issues. India also has many internal problems. Different communities with different identities - regional, language, caste, religion - demanded different rights for their communities. Some communities demanded more autonomy for their cultures within the Indian states. Others demanded autonomous states within the Indian Union, while the others demanded to be independent from India. With all its problems India survives as a single state with democratic character.

My good feelings on India's 66th Independence day

Vante Matharam, Vanthe Matharam, Vanthe Matharam

After Having seen 65 years of glorious India
We are now stepping into 66th independent India
Every year we celebrate our Independence day
On 15th August with fun and joy in a lovely way.

During the last 65 years of Independence
We all proved to be very good Indians
Yet there is room for much more to do
To acclaim we are the best in the world.

Oh ! Men, do you really feel to be independent
Touch heart and say happy with independence
Though we achieved much more galore to adore
Poverty ,corruption and illiteracy still a sore .

Gas,Diesel and Petrol(GDP)rates reached the sky
While the average income of an Indian just a pie
Are there any chances for us to proudly say
That India is moving as per all Indians way

To be proud as good Indians on this lovely earth
We need to strive hard ourselves until our death
Bring in changes in our good parliament system
To be very happy to sing our National anthem.

Oh ! My dear men, choose the best to the top
Don't vote for our evil politicians with hope
We can change India if we have a will to move
Do elect good MLAs and MPs for India to prove.

What a beautiful India that was a great prize
For every human on this lovely earth to praise
Let us keep up the name of great leaders who rose
And brought us freedom to live in harmony and peace.

Let us remember our good old days
And say a very happy Independence day

Jai Hind, Jai Hind, Jai Hind
