From the era of Jinnah and Nehru, India as a land has fought many ambiguous battles, within and even across the borders!
But the battle that is still up in this generation is the fake practices and non-adequacy of living standards!
I don’t want to sound positive on the eve of the Independence day and neither do I want to sing songs to glorify the event! I don’t want to talk about the struggle for freedom by infinite number of people since now that is a thing of the past, a thing to just remember and cherish!
Today, the Sun is not up on our heads but it is down below the horizon sinking and smirking at us to be good, act good! I can’t think that this entire image of snake charmers will dissolve from our shoulders unless and until we try it to! By trying I mean to emphasize on nature, attitude, thinking, personality, presentability, development, kindness, hard-work, honesty and overall genuineness!
There is still a tiny ray of light that asks me to linger on with the hope of being a part of a great nation! And wipe-off that age-old image of India as a land of snake-charmers!
