Happy Republic Day!

Happy Republic Day!

This is the day when India truly became independent because it was now that it adopted it’s new Constitution and shed the laws forced by British Government. It was the day when India declared itself as a Democratic, Secular, Socialist, Republic and hence created the foundation over which the new India rests now.

It is not perfect but it is mine! Like all of us, it is a work in progress. Let’s make our country great.

    1. Hehehe, it is not so much about getting rid of British Government but about finding ourselves, Pete. Somewhere in the 200 years of slavery, we Indians lost ourselves. We forgot the right knowledge and the rightful pride that comes with knowing your culture–which is not just Hindu but a mix of many different cultures. East India company flourished by dividing us, pitting us against each other. When we became independent, it was only the first baby step of reviving our true-self. We are now fighting for the second level of freedom 🙂, finding our togetherness, the system where everyone had a rightful place.

    1. Thank you, Don! We still have to fight the mindset that prefers white skin, Western wear, foreign travel and English over our own. I am not against any of them, but we shouldn’t be ashamed of what is our own.
