Happy 65th Independence Day to everyone!

India is enlightened for its famous traditional culture and knowledge since a decade, that shows us a brighten path every time. Knowledge is based in our tradition, which flows ultimately, rectifying us to a progressive course. But, it is very sad to express that this knowledge was narrowed and wedged to a limit, just like a frog in the well. As per the Indian history, many raja maharajas ruled; some did well and some tortured to our past generation. Then Britons ruled us for more than 100years giving so many pain and sting; which generated a huge gap between slavery and knowledge. It can be stated as, without knowledge there is no existence; only slavery deserves. And where knowledge found, there is the existence, the reality of life, which is freedom or independence. This is why Britons kept us far from knowledge, in the darkness. They blocked all the processes and paths of beliefs and judgments; only trained to follow the orders and preserve their entity and authority. This impacts Indians to join as clerks, police, and army personnel; and at last people thought these are the utmost and bright jobs for them. However, in real life they were fully suppressed with the power of slavery.

Slavery became a tendency among Indians. The Consciousness or tenor of slavery became a scale of consonance or adjustment among people. At that time, in 1789 French revolution created and matured some of the Indians to fight against Britishers to get their freedom. People get aware, tied up the belt for freedom, equality and fraternity. In 1833, Briton government set a law to stop the system of slavery, but it could not make pleasing as the economical, social and political stress was too much vulgar in India and other countries.

In year 1857, people replied with various mechanisms, but the democratic tenor was not matured in their mind. They simply just wants Britons back off from our country. Indian fighters started the battle against Britons; but in counter they got only economical, social and political breakdowns. However, the decision taken by British and 1857 battle keyed-up the people without any sleep and rest. Same time, in 1859, British Bureaucrat, philosopher and economist John Stuwart Mill's book "On Liberty" did a fame and debate; where he expressed the rights of personal and economical freedom of any person in a state. He also told, every person has the rights over his body and mind.

In this rivalry, few Indians get to know about the spread-up of knowledge and science in other parts of world, and got alerted. Few went to European countries to gain the knowledge and few by staying at India get associated with European popularities. These people later enlighten the path of spirituality and consciousness among people. Such prominent personnel are Swami Vivekananda, Rabindranath Tagore and Sri Aurobindo. Swami Vivekananda awakened the people with religious thoughts and knowledge based speeches. He travelled around the world by giving religious speeches and at last escorted the Indians to rise against their freedom and independence.

It was the time, when Swami Vivekananda, Rabindranath Tagore and Sri Aurobindo as prominent people try to uplift and raise the people from the slavery of Britons; but people were mostly affected by the changes occurred in western societies. Meanwhile, some became scholars in this facet and succeed to sustain the self-respect, and existence in creating a nation. The most prominent faces were Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Mahatma Gandhi, Subhash Chandra Bose and Bhagat Singh. Bal Gangadhar Tilak served his total life towards independent and swaraj (self-rule). He always said as, "Swaraj is my birthright, and I shall have it". He also believe in work and encourages to every person participating with him as, a country shall be independent when everyone become punctilious and independent.

With this matching convention, Mahatma Gandhi move ahead to kill slavery and gauntness, with the help of his two weapons- truth and non-violence. Truth, the self-sufficient and clean-natured helps to protect ones' independent. In a vital time, if a person depends upon others, then s/he could not be called as an independent. Gandhi has shown with his work, what he says to others. Spinning wheel with him is the symbol of self-dependent.

Whole total, a number of self-dependent and self-sufficient leaders were born in this country, who eleutheros the people from the British control. India got its independent on 1947; afterwards tour begins towards re-formation of country. However, lack of wisdom tradition has been seen. Society could not come out of seigniorial oppilations and circumvolved in consumer civilization. This is the reason; India could not become absolute country even after a long struggle and political independence. Corruption is now playing a vital role; morality is just in books and stories. People are at fear and terror everywhere; there is no peace and serene in this country.

If we really need and want to create a newly re-formed country, we must arouse the dipped ancient knowledge and tradition in every citizen; which can generate and create a truthful social independent society; and stimulate our conception, behavior and a democratic tenor.

Jai Hind!

Vande Mataram!

Mr Naresh, We have completed 64 glorious years after independence and now celebrating our 65th independence day. You may kindly correct your title.

Although Mr Behera 's thoughts are commendable , his language and grammar leave a lot to be desired. The speech seems to have been translated from some other language using an app or tool. So many of the expressions do not make sense Eg"Whole total, a number of self-dependent and self-sufficient leaders were born in this country, who eleutheros the people from the British control."
