71st Independence Day

As the subcontinent recovered from a bloody war with  British residents;
it is very important to recognize how we got here from the dark slavery dens,
India’s Independence has gone a long way from “The Battle of Plassey” to “The Sepoy Mutiny”;
However, a unified and national uprising of India as a nation against British authority might somewhat be the destiny,
A day when people in India pay homage to their leaders and those who fought for India’s freedom in the past;
A time when the area with major government buildings illuminated with strings of lights is vast,
Its a day to feel the pride of “Vande Mataram” and “Jana Gana Mana”;
A day to recall how the movements for Independence  had begun,
There are a million things about our freedom movement that the textbooks have told us;
and a billion other things which may have been overlooked, omitted or simply haven’t given focus,
Those who have dedicated their lives for the cause of Indian Independence;
The Indian freedom fighters need to be remembered at least once,
The blood they shed in any freedom fight or “Jallianwala Bagh” hadn’t gone in vain;
As finally India got Independence somewhere down the lane,
And now its time  to feel the pride of being a part of such a glorious nation that has led its path of freedom its own way;
and celebrate with prestige and dignity India’s 71st Independence  Day.

  1. it is good to see some young one is keeping track of independence event. it is better if you look into events that led to eviction of Britishers from our country. The leaders like Mahatma gandhi Nehruji and many others who jolted Britishers to move out/ .A good post overall. you write very well.
