BEING INDIAN

My Facebook page is getting flooded with tricolor ..pictures  that announce love for the country, statuses that say of their love for India ,how proud we are being Indians…profile picture being changed to Indian flags.. tricolor filling everywhere .Being an Indian I feel proud seeing these..obviously that’s how each of us feel…

But is that it? Dedicating a day to show how much  you love your country and purposely forgetting the next day..

All these posts from those who found that some potholes here resembled Indian map. How sarcastic!! (But that was one sad truth…Am I being double faced??). The picture portraying the kid selling flags on streets disturbs my mind…Along with wishing independence, doesn’t that indirectly point toward poverty. Does it? Some desperate hearts for like and comments they get…Whom am I blaming??Who doesn’t love being noticed? Even I do .The new generation of India!! (No not everyone) Am I different?  No!!  I don’t understand politics or am I pretending so. The only thing that comes in my mind when I think of politics is of corruption. May be it’s my ignorance.

Have I done anything for my nation?? As I post this I realize that I am no different, love for my nation confined to these words. Does my duty being a citizen of India end here? Or does it begin here?

All the freedom fighters who struggled for the freedom of this great nation, gave their lives  for the country, all the soldiers serving  the nation, each and every soul whose love for India doesn’t merely exist in their hearts but also in their lives…I bow before you…Jai Hind!!

The cliched Happy independence day to one and all of you…
