15th August, 1947, the day of Independence, the day India was free from the British rule. India has grown a lot in these 69 years. We have 29 states and named the most diverse country. It’s a nightmare to even imagine to be living in a non-free country. All the freedom fighters who had a dream of freedom in this country are responsible for the life we have today. They had a motive that if they died, at least their next generation will start their life in a free country.
In the last 69 years we as a country has improved so much in so many sectors. We are now able to compete with the first world countries in so many things. If we had not gotten the freedom we would not have been contending instead we would be looking for food and thinking about how to pay taxes which are not even possible.
Of course our country has so many things which cannot be proud of, like Corruption, Regionalism, Communalism etc. But just think for a second we are the biggest democratic country in the world. Do you even contemplate the fact of being in a democratic country? The freedom you get because you are born here? We are not saying to be proud because you are an indian. We are asking you to respect the people who died for your freedom.
This video featuring Raveena Tandon and Manoj Bajpayee is an eye opener for us to realize how our lives would have been if 15th August,1947 never have happened.
