Here's wishing everyone Happy 75th Independence Day of Bharat, with the hope that we will be free from the dogma, bigotry, gender bias, corruption, terrorism and treason that have plagued the country.
For our independence, numerous freedom fighters have given the biggest sacrifice of their lives, and their thoughts and words are precious even today.
While the words of Ramprasad Bismil “Sarfaroshi ki tamanna ab hamare dil me hai, dekhna hai zor kitna baazu-e-qaatil me hai” works as an inspiration even today, the words of Subhash Chandra Bose “Tum Muje Khoon Do, Mai Tumhe Azadi Dunga” and Chandra Shekhar Azad "Dushman ki goliyon ka hum samna karenge, Azad hee rahein hain, Azad hee rahenge" acts as a catalyst for incomparable strength and goosebumps even after 74 years of independence.
Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar also said, “Freedom of mind is the real freedom. A person whose mind is not free though he may not be in chains, is a slave, not a free man. One whose mind is not free, though he may not be in prison, is a prisoner and not a free man. One whose mind is not free though alive, is no better than dead. Freedom of mind is the proof of one's existence.”
Surprisingly, today when we are celebrating the 75th Independence Day, we hardly take Ramprasad Bismil, Subhash Chandra Bose, Bhagat Singh or Chandra Shekhar Azad as ideals, and those who claim to follow Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar as ideal, only accept him but do not listen to him!
We seem to have taken the meaning of independence too far that we've missed the meaning of duties that our freedom fighters believed we will obey to make our nation safer and healthier.
Can You Guess The Reason?
The reason, as per my understanding, for not only ignoring true patriots who gave the highest sacrifices for the nation, but also for all the problems that exist in our society, is that the children aren't taught Philosophy, Spirituality and Dharma in schools.
I understand that mere mention of 'Dharma' to be taught in schools, would make many uncomfortable attaching it with religion only. But if you care for Bharat, then you must cogitate.
'Dharma' is a Sanskrit word that means a combination of all these words - duty, the social glue, law, rule, usage, practice, custom, ordinance, statute, spiritual or moral merit, virtue, righteousness, good works and not just religion!
Social Issues We Face
The list of issues that concern us as a nation is long. For now, I'll talk about issues that concern me today the most.
Today, as we commemorate the 75th anniversary of India's independence, we must recognise that Bharat, with its extremely gynocentric government and society, inspired by a devious trick by the left's feminism, is the most hazardous for Men. There are numerous hazards including traps that most Men are not even aware of.
The gender bias within laws has gone so deep-rooted that while expecting a Man to be like Shri Ram is a woman's right, a man expecting a woman to be loyal like Sita is considered domestic violence and toxic patriarchy! The issue of Men's Rights finds no place in the list of priorities of the government.
Today, while there are castes who feel the pride of their caste with 'Caste Certificate' in the pocket and a right to prosecute anyone who names him by the caste name, there are also people who even if reveals his caste casually, leads to #SmashThePatriarchy and smash #BrahmanicalPatriarchy trending on Twitter.
Let’s Hope For The Best
So, as of now, we should pray! May God grant wisdom to politicians who are breaking the families through their gender politics, and those who are trying to divide society through caste politics, for their electoral gains.
Once again wishing you a Happy 75th Independence Day, with a strong belief that we will rise further together as a nation, irrespective of our religious and political beliefs, irrespective of religion, caste, and gender, and continue to be a patriot in its truest form.
