Independence Day

Better Essays
On this Special Day I would like to recollect the words of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru on the eve of India’s Independence.

“Long years ago we made a tryst with destiny, and now the time comes when we will redeem our pledge, not wholly or in full measure, but very substantially. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance .... We end today a period of ill fortune, and India discovers herself again."

Did we really discover our soul? I think its Yes but not a substantial one. This is the day, to relook ourselves, where we are today, where we were and where we shall be.

We had many challenges on the eve of Independence Day. Our fore-fathers fought hard for the freedom of India. But not all were acclaimed for their contribution for their struggle for the freedom. Women as a family fought for freedom, they sacrificed their lives, sons, husbands and their family. But they were never acclaimed for their struggle. Today we find that women have excelled in every path of life, as doctors, engineers, teachers, pilots, CEOs, Anchors.

If we look back our post independence journey, Yes we have achieved good growth. We are recognized as the fast growing economy. Ours is the country with diversity of caste, creed, community. We share different food, we speak different languages still we have achieved the Unity in Diversity. Today we speak about people moving to the cities, Multinational Companies entering into India. Nevertheless, we have preserved our culture. Let’s take an example of mobile service providers. Ours is the country where we have the option to speak to the Customer Care in the language we want to opt. This is one proud thing that, we have never compromised our culture with growth. We were ranked as the second most populated country. But Population is a blessing in disguise for us. We have the best talent pool in the world as per

    As the Independence Day is approaching, I am continuously haunted by a question i.e. are we truly free and independent? We have gained freedom from the British rule but what have we done with our independence? It has been 63 years since we have gained independence. We are a free nation now. But still after so many years, the question remains the same. We proudly claim that we are independent from a foreign rule but we are still not free from jealousy, intolerance and hatred towards our fellow countrymen…
