Are we really independent ?Today we celebrated the 70th independence day of our country. The flag hosting took place on the India Gate and was being done by our honorable Prime Minister Narendra Modi. We all gave slogans of "Vande Mataram" "Jai Hind". Our soldiers presented the beautiful and artistic view of parade followed by our national anthem. People f
rom different states took participation and showed and presented their culture and tradition in the Parade held at India Gate. But here I got a question for all , are we really independent? Do we actually feel the freedom of thought, actions, words even today in our country. If we think on this topic, the discussion is just not going to end. If we talk in terms of society, does this society still accepts girls who work in night shifts? Can girls still wear short clothes, do they still have the right to pursue career of their choice?? Are they free for all this? The crime is increasing day by day, still more of rape cases, molestation, still harassment being faced in work environment. But still we believe we are independent. If a girl is born in a village, once she completes her education, she is being forced to get married, and in most cases, she is not even able to complete her education and her parents ask her to marry as they think that is the ultimate goal of her life :( I feel really ashamed of such poor and worse thoughts that people have. Women empowerment and education are the two most important concerns that India needs to be educated. People of village and small districts need to be educated and taught about Girl's education and need to be taught that how valuable a girl child is. Reservations and Quotas still available in competitive examinations, special quotas still being given with a name of Other backward class, schedule castes, why is all this still taking part ?
Students those who are belonging to general category have to face hectic conditions to get admissions in good colleges, inspite of getting good grades. Inspite of everyone having the same knowledge and intelligence, preference is first given to the people from OBC, SC's, ST's etc.... This tells that the "casteism" still exists in our country. People are just ready to kill each other in the name of religion. Stress, need for more money, increasing inflation have all caused human beings to die everyday at their work in order to feed their family. Watsapp, Snapchat, facebook and other social medias are taking over the healthy family discussions. Still we think we are happy and independent..
