69th INDIApendence de – Celebrating 68 years of Freedom

Independence is not for a country, it is for her citizens. Independence is not for bodies, it is for the soul.

India got independence from British rule on 15th August 1947. Lot of sacrifices, Marches and revolutions were the cause so that we got independence as an effect. Being the largest democratic country and which believes in unity in diversity, India is known for not to wage a war on any other country throughout its history.

So today on 15th August 2015, let’s celebrate the joy of freedom, the bliss of being independent, the pride of being an Indian. But not to forget that we all are global citizens undivided by any border. We all are images of one worldly soul. We all are the pieces of one mother soul living in order to achieve peace. So, if we divide a place by country, we are dividing a part of ourself without which we are incomplete. Each piece obtain its independence on its own in order to become fit for the perplexing puzzle of life. India, one of the pieces of Soul, got  independence on this date. Freedom which is for the Indians, of the Indians and by the Indians.

Independence is the freedom from being divided. Saluting to all the brave and kind souls which sacrificed their existence in order to make us feel the existence of being Indpendent.

Asaan nahi tha azaadi ka ye safar,
Hazaaro ki qurbaani ka hai ye asar,
Aaj bhi hote hai log suffer, aata hai kya tumhe nazar?
Housla do unhe iss tarah, that they will feel better,
Kuch aisa karo ki vo kare apne aap pe fakar,
Mann ki azaadi ke liye, don’t let your dreams buffer.

Translation:
It was not easy, the journey of independence,
This is the effect of sacrifices of thousands,
Even today lot of them suffer,
Do something for them that they will feel better and proud of themselves,
In order to free your soul, don’t let your dreams buffer.

Thanks for reading. Jai Hind.

      Thank you so much Chris.. Yes. Here in India, people salute to all the people who sacrificed their lives for independence. Indian flag is hoisted by our Prime Minister.. He gives a speech on the present situation of the country and gives a small account of future strategies.. A variety of events are held on this day. When I was a kid I remember seeing and doing a lot of activities including gymnastics in school, flag hoisting.. But the best part, school authorities used to give chocolates and sweets.. That was my childish version of independence.. ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a good weekend..

    … we are all global citizens undivided by any border … I like that you take the global perspective into account. Freedom is nothing to be taken for granted and needs to be defended in our every day life. I am also thinking of religious or social minorities within countries. And I am especially thinking of how women are treated and betrayed of their freedom and their right to lead a self determined life.

    Happy independence day to you and to everybody who contributes to the feedom of others with words and with actions and to whom freedom is not just a fancy word on one day of the year.

      Thank you so much.. As we can see freedom is not just associated with countries. Nowadays division of people by religions, castes, color, gender and regions is quite common, which is the main reason that celebration of these days goes meaningless. Very true. Women should have the same rights as men do and should be treated equally in all fields. Yes, this day marks the sacrifice of thousands of such people who gave up their life for the future. Future which is us. So celebrating for one day is not justified. We should keep their sacrifice in our mind every day, and carry the torch forward for freedom.. The real freedom, which is freedom from being divided. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.. Have a good day.

    ‘Independence is the freedom from being divided’ – very well said. That was a profound message.
    Happy independence day!
