Independence Day Special : The History, The Present and The Future of India

2,000 years ago India contributes to around forty percent in the world’s economy. Called as “Gold Bird” (Sone Ki Chiriya) long time ago, there was a continuous stalking from terrorist groups, attackers and looters all across the world. Year by year, they came and shamelessly looted our country’s wealth. Looters like Gori, Mahmud of Ghazni, Nader Shah (Iranian ruler), Genghis Khan (Khagan of the Mongol Empire) and others are just a few. Lastly came the Britishers. Due to their ‘Divide and Rule‘ policy, the Britishers ruled the nation more than 253 years and also forcefully imposed their governance.

After a continuous struggle and waking up of India’s Independence, the Britishers decided to go back home. There was no less of challenges, however, we never lack braveness and courageousness. Fighting all these problems, India is now again ready to lead the world.

The country got freedom, but we (the people) become slaves. In the level of mentality, thoughts and also in the level of behavior. We took this freedom for granted. In the name of our freedom, we started to interfere in others’ freedom. Qualities like good faith, brotherhood, love & respect, all became slipslop.
