Every day we feel the pride of being an Indian. And today is of course the special day, when we fully engross ourselves in the celebrations. While the whole India is celebrating the 64th Republic day today, there is something which is missing.......What is it? The enthusiasm, I suppose.
Honestly, at the back of my mind some things are troubling my thoughts-----the corruption, the killing of the Indian soldiers at the 'Border', the heinous crime of 16th December,2012 and many more such incidents.
We do believe in the principles of ,
'SARVE BHAVANTU SUKHINAH; SARVE SANTU NIRAMAYAH;
SARVE BHADRANI PASHYANTU; MAA KASCHITDUKH BHAKBHAVET;
OM SHANTI, SHANTI, SHANTI.
Which means, each becomes happy, each one of us are free from illness, each one of us are free from worries. May there be Peace, Peace and Peace.
So the happiness and celebrations are somewhat incomplete, even if one Indian is unhappy.
But, let us look at the positives----I presume everyone is conscious of his/ her national pride, their rights and duties and responsibilities towards the country. It is so heartening to see that, especially among the youth. The protest march by the citizens shows or reassures, that democracy is still alive in INDIA.
HAPPY REPUBLIC DAY!
