Is it just an occasion of bumper sales and “50% off”‘s on online shopping websites and stores around the city? Of putting up posters, banner and scrappers of tricolour everywhere for publicity and fake patriotism? Is it just another well enjoyed holiday in which we cuddle up in our couch and watch a well known celebrity dance to a famous number draped with clothes that are orange white and green with popping confetti around them? Well, if you would ask me, I would say NO! It is doubtlessly not.
It is a day to achieve which people of Indian, irrespective of their religion, caste and creed, fought, gave their life, thought about nothing but to free our mother land! And all we do is relax and entertain ourselves? Do for once we take our time to remember and respect those who made the life we live today, in India, possible? The answer is a big no again. Today I would really like to say Thank You to all those who did not think twice to give their life for a greater cause, for the independence of Bharat, India. I would feel good to thank not only those whom we know as freedom fighters, but many others who did not make it to the fame list.
If you are reading this, I would appreciate if you would do the same.
