What kind of freedom do we aspire for now ?I had the golden opportunity to witness the Independence Day celebrations at Red Fort. This was my first time in so many years that I witnessed the feelings of joy and ebullience of my fellow countrymen on such an important day in the history of India.
The PM's speech and the rapt attention with which people listened was impressive. I left feeling so proud and special.
This made me realize that since now that we are a free country, for what kind of freedom should we aspire now? What does freedom mean today? Do we still need something or are we all good?
My thoughts are ranging from poverty, illiteracy, corruption, diseases, women safety and so on and so forth.
I believe we have a long way to go to achieve real freedom. What do you think?
