Thanks To Many, We Have External Freedom. For True Inner Freedom ==> We Have To Fight With Ourselves…
Our forefathers sacrificed and got us our external freedom, so much to be grateful for as we celebrate yet another Independence Day. But to feel the inner freedom, we need to fight and change ourselves feel this ==> honesty, commitment, trust, positivity, freedom from pettiness and interference, hard work, good habits, civic sense, cleanliness, community service, etc. WE NEED TO WORK HARD TO ACHIEVE BUT THE RESULTS WOULD BE WORTH FIGHTING FOR. ARE WE READY TO FIGHT THIS INNER BATTLE?

As the 71st Independence Day is upon us – India is a “sea of calm” unlike recent years and decades. All things we have been asking for are happening: corruption is going down fast (but not out yet), things actually work – including our Parliament, most things (but not our courts) move faster, country is getting cleaner, there are more toilets which people use, lots of roads and bridges are getting built at a faster pace, more things online makes things easier to find, surplus food and milk, very low inflation, anything one might want is widely available… and on and on… Our society is not perfect but we are moving in that direction. Still many many things to improve… poverty, education, jobs, police… But there is now hope and confidence that the system / things will change for better. So much less to fight for, leading to much less excitement…
All this is making our life sooooo boring…

First time pregnant actress 38 year old Soha Ali Khan, at least part-Muslim, wore a traditional Bengali Sari and sported a Bindu like a elegant Bengali woman. And for this she was heavily criticized – allegedly by other Muslims who felt she was not in observant of Eid. It is not clear if there is a dress code for Eid and who has the right to establish this for others. Did we also forget that the Indian constitution gives everyone certain non-negotiable freedoms?

Delhi High Court judge in the JNU student union president petition noted that the claim of “fundamental right to freedom of speech and expression is some kind of infection from which such students are suffering which needs to be controlled/cured before it becomes an epidemic.” Further, the judge noted that we are enjoying this freedom only because our army and paramilitary are guarding our borders in one of the most difficult terrains in the world from Siachen Glacier to the Rann of Kutch. Such person who enjoy the freedom to raise such slogans on university campuses and shout anti-national slogans, will not be able to withstand Siachen for even one hour where oxygen is scarse.”
