Yesterday I was watching one of my favorite show 'Time Machine' in the EPIC Channel. A Time traveller(TT) from 2015 went to a pre independent time and somehow found himself as a prisoner with the Krantikaris(K) inside a British jail... On looking at the Krantikaris in the pathetic condition he asked :
TT to K: you r in the prison,you suffer a lot, you left you family,you lost your son, you may die or be killed anytime. Why r u are doing this ?
Krantikaris: This is for my country and my ppl. One day when we will be free from British Rule, our ppl will be in higher positions in politics,will be good teachers,good engineers,good businessmen,good lawers etc ..they will feel us much better than the Britishers and develop our Bharat desh. That time i will not be alive but my soul will feel overwhelmed.
TT(Chuckling): But if Independent Indians will follow the same policies of Britishers and be corrupted and be psychologically driven by foreign ideologies. then.. ??
Currents goes .... !! I was not able to watch more but it disturbed me a lot.
Friends, our independence on 15th Aug 1947 was just transfer of power to the Indians. As compared to other nations which got independence with us about 7 decades ago are much developed than us. We are mere people and cannot do big big things, but atleast keep a hand in our heart and make sure that we do atleast one positive thing for our nation and recall it before we sleep every day..
Happy Independence Day
