Wishing all my potpourriers,
A very happy 68th Independence Day!!
Today on this day, my message is to all the young professionals specially in the IT sector including myself since i have experienced it myself.
Sometimes it makes me wonder – what would it have been to live before 1947… would we have had the courage to sacrifice our lives for our country..for the freedom of our future generations.???? Honestly, that emotion of patriotism only awakens within us only on the 15th August and 26th January that’s it. Am not being rude, but i think that is the ugly truth. Once we are out of school/college i guess these days only one meaning for us of these dates is..another holiday where in our morning alarm can be turned off or snooze button can be clicked for much more longer than 10 mins.
How hard it is to wake up one day early or may be its your usual timing itself for just those two days for your country …..to stand up for the National Anthem singing it out loud and see the National Flag – the most beautiful Tiranga being hoisted and flying high, to at least remember all those decades of freedom fight, struggle and so many thousands of lives sacrificed just so that we could all breathe in the fresh air of freedom and independence today.
At least if not the people in the past, but for those brave soldiers few whom you might personally know in some way or other- who chose to stand at the border and risk their lives every single day so that we can sleep in our air conditioned rooms, go to work in peace and maybe talk about movies and sports or go party after office hours.
I think its our responsibility to least, pay homage to those who have sacrificed for us. We the youth our the backbone of the worlds largest democracy should be ever ready to stand up for our country when the time comes and to keep that feeling strong and going, we can start with by waking up and saluting when the National Flag is hoisted tomorrow -15th August 2015 and singing our heart out loud the National Anthem – Jana Gana Mana Adhinayak Jaye Hai Bharat Bhagya Vidhata… … …
I’ll be there watching my flag flying high and singing out loud – will you??
Jai Hind!!! Vande Mataram!!!
