70 years have gone since India has become independent, since morning whatsapp has been going bezerk with all the independence day messages, various groups flooded with messages what made me laugh out and smile the most was that we follow the same ritual each year on this day and the very next day all is but forgotten.   I am just curious today what does independence  mean to everyone, 70 years almost two whole generation of citizens who were born in free India are adults and more by now… including me, those who lived through those dark days have almost gone.

People have changed, ideology has changed BUT there is one breed of people that has Not changed OUR DEAR LEADERS the so called Gandhi followers , the little change that has happened is that these leaders have become more intelligent in how to loot the nation, Same old principles.

This is going to be a SHOCK for all reading this , I am a Indian and I think we should stop celebrating the Independence day .. the whole idea of or the reason of the celebration has been lost, In my mind or in my sense we started celebrating this day because the British LEFT us or GAVE us independence , The british went because they could not see any advantage of there stay Had they wanted they could have stayed anyway that’s not the point of this article..

We started to celebrate this day because we became a independent country to be governed by us Indians THAT’S IT.. But its been 70 years of celebration no one celebrates events for ever .. Especially when now we can sit back and think DO WE REALLY DESERVE IT ALL.

The few years in the start may have been good in-spite of the wars we had to fight, for the sole reason that we had Indians ruling us and No white skin to bow down to. There have been some commendable work done by some Indians, I say some because there are only a handful who actually work for the betterment or good of the country, but we as a nation have sidelined them too , Does any one know whats happening with ANNA HAZAARE Ji, he worked so hard but the people around him took advantage , one of them became a political leader won by a huge margin YET look at that same person now A POLITICIAN, the whole ideology lost.

Where are we now..

Were we not better off when we had British rule.. The reason I say is lets compare our nation with the Likes of Germany or Japan.. world war happened which left the state of those countries completely devastated.. Look at them NOW.. Can we compare even a single thing… India was not devastated True it was poor because of the wealth taken away BUT mind you British gave our country a lot, The roads they built then are still standing , Have a look at the road in each locality – in your own locality that were built just DAY BEFORE YESTERDAY, you will get the idea..

Railways was another thing given to us, Some of the narrow gauge rail tracks are still working , have a look at the condition especially in rural places, we have not been able to provide connection to those far away remote areas.

The people who gave their LIVES for the country had the right to say they love their country, How many of the people who have written big articles or commented how they love their country can actually go and give their life, HECK I don’t think I can go and die..

Yes our country is corrupt, Yes its far behind, Yes our country is dirty All this is true so time has come to STOP going GA GA over stupid things and shouting at foreigners who says India is dirty YES IT IS, I say so that does not mean I am not Indian or you love the country more than ME. Time has Come to WORK and FIX IT.. well actually the time was years back BUT never too late to start.  So what if a foreigner said India is dirty SO WHAT.. if it felt bad then maybe you should have gone and cleaned the place .. HECK I would do that I mayn’t have the guts to go and die for the country but I can go and clean the place and I have done it ..

AND FOR THE SAKE OF GOD, what irks me the MOST is the people who say how India is developing, How we are becoming a big economy THIS AND THAT blah BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH, the so called people who are living in a dream and have never ever EVER seen what is going on,  Let me give them a little example There is a little village that is next to the one that I belong to , In a Very influential district in Punjab , this district is very very influential now in the political scenario of the country, only this year they got the facility of WATER, filtered clean water.. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT after 70 years of  Independence and that too without the help from Government, We all got together the next project is to have proper drains for good sanitation.

What development is that , how is sending people to the moon or satellites going to help the person who has to walk for miles to get fresh water, GO ASK THEM.  Today being independence day why don’t you do one thing and go and ask these people how much they suffer.  We all each and everyone , people Living In or outside India, EACH ONE has to wake up and stop this FARCE.. IF we start now maybe just maybe in a decade or two we can start to celebrate the Independence day again when we again win our freedom this time from our own people, From US , FROM YOU from ME… it is still a maybe but then there is still hope…

I was reading an article where someone mentioned we should celebrate the day to pay respect to freedom fighters, Come on I say to them, Those freedom fighters did not give their life to get this day , they had different ideas, they gave their LIFE for US the new generation who shout at top of our voice when need be how proud we are to be Indians,

THE REAL CELEBRATION WOULD BE TO MAKE SURE WE BUILD THE INDIA THAT THEY HAD VISUALIZED

The likes of Sardar Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekar Azad, Rajguru ,Udham Singh (by the way did anyone know Death anniversary of Sardar Udham Singh was 31st July) and Plenty more whom history AND PEOPLE have forgotten who embraced death in their early age They were all Jewels of the country conveniently forgotten by History Manipulators , they had a dream of a GREAT NATION, of a GOOD NATION they gave the ultimate sacrifice THEIR LIFE, lets not let that sacrifice go to waste furling the national flag, singing the national anthem is not gonna achieve that, (we as a nation have even argued over the names of places in our national anthem, that is the sort of people we are 🙂  ) We have to start to WORK on making it better. We need to face the REALITY, till we do that nothing can be changed the first step to start changing or rectifying a PROBLEM is to Accept there IS A PROBLEM… if there is no problem then what are we rectifying NOTHING

If each of us takes just a couple of hours out  a week it can work wonders. The problem is we will not do anything, but the moment someone says this is wrong , that is wrong we all attack them like a swarm of bees.. What we DON’T Do is try to rectify the wrongness.

A lot of thoughts go by ones mind when idle , today as I sat in my car to drive to work, I had this  how do I say chaos of thoughts and none matched the one that just went by it was all going in tangents, at one time I was home and the next I was thinking of Cricket or the Fast taken by Anna Hazaare. I had to literally sit down and SHAKE my head severely to bring it back in sync with normalcy :), if that is possible.

Well I am trying to jot down the thoughts now these may hurt a lot of people so I am sorry to them but as usual would ask them to think on the wider picture and logically.. The recent few events that have happened back home have been good – bad and Ugly.. I mean world cup happened I wanted to write a post on it but blogosphere is full of articles so I did not post though I had one in the drafts, The whole nation became one in that one last week of the matches , australia-Pakistan-Sri Lanka all defeated in a row thanks to some good cricket played by our team .. but other then that it was the spirit of the indians which came to the fore how we all got together, here in UK too it was evident everyone in pubs wearing the Blue shirts and cheering till throats went hoarse .. 

That was the GOOD…  

Then came the chain of events where Anna hazaare along with a whole lot of people took this fast to get the Govt of india to their knees , which was a Very good thing that finally the Govt. got so scared that they could not afford something happening to Anna , they had to relent to it, brings to mind the satyagraha taken by Indians against the British people but there was a STARK DIFFERENCE at that time the whole country was one but now only a handful which was a shame , Out of Billions of People just a meagre few .. I know a lot of the Intelligent people out there will say it’s a START, but I am as usual cynical start of what, Things can’t get achieved by a few going on a fast , their have to be a vast majority of people who need to give there support.  Not forgetting about the rumours that just came after the fast was broken many of the distinguished people in the group had political problems , I will not get into the details cause somewhere in my heart I knew this would happen. True there are some genuine people who want things to change but those genuine people are few, and as the poem i posted I don’t believe in the Khadi wearing leaders.   They are all the same , some have hundreds of skeletons in their cupboard , some just One but they do have.

Well I don’t want to go on and on about that , I do support the Cause started by Anna Hazare, but as I said earlier I don’t support the khadi wearing people, To me I still feel that we need to make a loud noise to make sure the DEAF hear us and that will only come true if the current generation and the one coming up behind will get together, I mean I was watching the IPL match between Kings XI and One more team I forgot the name I think it was Mumbai indians and the stadium had more people in it then the number of people who actually GENUINELY went out and supported the anti corruption Cause. That is the reality of our great nation.

That was BAD

I have so many question running around, a soldier in the army gets paid to fight for the country for which he is ready to give his life, they live in conditions where the majority of so-called Desh Bhagats wont even survive one day, What they are doing is real work then why do we start comparing a sports man as a soldier of the country as it happened in the Cricket match against Pakistan, Everyone saw the crowd there, people spent LAKHS of rupees to get a ticket to watch that match but I am sure NONE of them spent a thousand to buy a bus ticket to go to Delhi to sit with the people who were fasting.

How come none of the sportsmen who when it comes to recognition come in herds and then moan how they are paid less or not thought of , come in support.  I mean with no disrespect to the supporters of GOD of cricket Sachin Tendulkar, I am myself a fan of his and he is GOD , Why could he not have come in support and gone and sat there for a fast, I mean he is made his life, his future generations life living in india , the love and affection he has got, I do feel that someone like him Should have supported the cause and then MAYBE the cricket frenzy public would have done more and not just their are a few who can be named who are willing to take millions from the nation but give nothing in return and i say nothing BECAUSE when they lose they are not accounted for. none of them say of I wont take the match fee for this one because we lost.

True the govt has agreed to the terms of the Cause but that is it , Nothing is going to happen the govt has just agreed to put the bill in the session whether something actually takes place once passed we have yet to find out, the reason being each and every leader will have to step down or brought to justice cause they are the Khadi wearing politicians and that to bright White starched ironed ones.  If we think something will change then who are we kidding.

That is UGLY 

HENCE my thought that till we ALL get together MILLIONS-BILLIONS  and make that NOISE the noise that will wake up the deaf-blind govt we have things will not change.
