Happy Independance Day!!!

Tomorrow a new sun will herald the 60th year of Indian Independence.Celebrations will be on in every part of India.The flag will gaily float making every Indian proud.Martyrs of our country who died for this freedom can now rest peacefully knowing that we are all free and happily so.Its s new dawn and a step towards progress.

When i look back i wonder if we are really are free.Is our mind free from complexities? Is it free from human frailties??No it is not.We still care what others namely the society will think before we actually act.How long will we give importance to irrelevant things before we wake up to true freedom??Women are now given equality,science has progressed,economy is rising and so is terror all in name of progress and freedom!there is still time to realize,and to act upon it and to walk towards our golden future.we may be a third world country but we have the potential to stand up on our own.After all we are a mini continent on our own;unity in diversity.

Here is a poem by the Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore which i simply love-

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high:

Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up
into fragments by narrow domestic walls;
Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arm towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
into the dreary desert sand of dead habit;
Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-
-widening thought and action-
Into that heaven of freedom,my my father let my
country awake.

Happy Independence day to all Indians!!

Phoenix am glad you liked my blog:)Thanks! Ofcourse you can blogroll me.

India is independent but we within ourselves are not. We still carry some prejudices & notions that stops us from growing into beautiful individuals.

On a +ve note, Happy Independence Day!
