My loved India,
76 years in the past as of late, you made a tryst with future. Whilst the sector slept, you aroused from sleep to lifestyles and freedom. After years of colonialisation, you have been unfastened. Within the technique of shifting from an enslaved to a unfastened country, you misplaced a lot of your courageous kids. Youngsters who gave up houses and a simple sleep, who persevered lathis in prisons some shedding their lives within the procedure, who toiled miles and miles away to focus on the atrocities their brethren confronted and most significantly who selected freedom in their motherland over subjugation. Those kids may have had other concepts of the way independence must be attained, however they all have been true patriots and I would like to bear in mind and thank them as of late for his or her blood, sweat and tears.
At this vital juncture whilst the country celebrates ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ (Elixir of Freedom), I wish to congratulate you for disproving everybody who idea you might perish and may now not govern your self. Winston Churchill the barbaric British Top Minister as soon as remarked, ‘If the British left India, it could fall again rather hastily throughout the centuries of barbarism and privations of the Heart Ages’. You proved him and lots of different like him unsuitable through rising and proceeding as the only greatest democracy on the earth. A democracy this is colourful and various befitting the announcing ‘Kos kos par badle paani,chaar kos par baani, par ek hai jo nahi badalta vo hai Hindustani’ which means ‘Style of water adjustments each and every 2 miles, language adjustments each and every 4 miles, however Indians nonetheless don’t trade.’
Nowadays I wish to percentage my aspirations and hopes from you. Atop the Purple Fortress, Pt. Nehru had remarked ‘A second comes, which comes however hardly ever in historical past, after we step out from the previous to the brand new, when an age ends, and when the soul of a country, lengthy suppressed, reveals utterance.’ Nowadays, at the eve of 75th Independence Day, I remind you that this second has come once more.
I am hoping that we succeed in equality in letter and spirit. We shed limitations of caste, race, intercourse, faith, source of revenue and welcome all and sundry as voters of India. India the place everyone seems to be equivalent, and no person is discriminated or most well-liked over the opposite unfairly. An India, the place circle of relatives traces don’t dictate or close doorways to a career and the Aam Insaan (commonplace guy) can aspire to guide the country or give a contribution to its enlargement. An Aam Insaan can aspire to be the Top Minister like Lal Bahadur Shastri, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Manmohan Singh or the incumbent Narendra Modi, the President like Abdul Kalam or the incumbent Draupadi Murmu, and the Leader Justice just like the incumbent Justice NV Ramanna. I am hoping India sheds limitations of nepotism and shall we everybody develop on their advantage. I am hoping we admire everybody regardless of their origins whether or not humble or noble.
I am hoping that we uphold the rights enshrined in our Charter. Untouchability is if truth be told abolished; handbook scavenging turns into a factor of the previous and we deal with everybody with dignity regardless of their career. I am hoping freedom of speech isn’t selective and we give protection to even the ones with whom we disagree. I am hoping that within the fight of the Left v. Proper, humanity does now not endure, and relationships don’t seem to be sacrificed.
I am hoping that the distinction our political establishments as soon as held is restored. Parliament is a discussion board for debate and dialogue, and now not for exchanging barbs and evading accountability. The vote of the folks and their mandate is revered, and insurance policies don’t seem to be thwarted only for the sake of opposition. Top Minister Vajpayee Ji had as soon as rightly mentioned, ‘सरकारें आएंगी, जाएंगी, पार्टियां बनेंगी, बिगड़ेंगी मगर ये देश रहना चाहिए’ (governments will come and move, events will probably be created and destroyed, then again, this nation must stay endlessly). One will have to needless to say even in the midst of warfare Top Minister Nehru answered to the requires convening a consultation of the Parliament, and appraised the country accordingly. I am hoping we go back to such occasions the place the Opposition each opposes and lauds the federal government the place wanted. Mere opposition for the sake of it, isn’t what our manufacturers envisaged for India’s democracy, and nor is it wholesome.
I am hoping we take just right care of our kids and give protection to them from social evils. At their gentle age they’re uncovered to high quality schooling, morals, love and now not torture. They flock faculties and now not the streets begging to make ends meet. I am hoping kids don’t seem to be made topics of any ideology however are made accountable voters able to forming their very own knowledgeable reviews. I am hoping lecturers hotel to like and care, as an alternative of a persist with educate those kids.
I am hoping that we Indians are happy with our country. I am hoping we recognize that India may have flaws, however you might be nonetheless ours and we stand for you. I am hoping the fad of criticising for the sake of it dies down and grievance is handiest authentic. I am hoping we admire our tradition and don’t seem to be slaves to a colonial mindset or hangover.
In the end, I am hoping that after we are celebrating the 100th 12 months of India’s Independence, I take a seat down to put in writing every other such letter, one who is filled with new hopes and aspiration for my loved India, for the reason that ones discussed above stand fulfilled.
