Yesterday was our Independence Day. I would like to wish a very happy Independence Day to all my countrymen. 66 years ago, we got independence from the British rule. Many martyrs sacrificed their lives to gain this independence. Independence Day is just an occasion to salute and to pay our homage to those brave martyrs. They are always alive in our memories and will always be there. After ruling our country for 190 years, British gave political independence to us. That was beginning of a new India.
But there are many problems in present India. We have to fight those problems to make our country free from all the evils. But one problem is being there for the last 66 years. British gave independence to India but created Pakistan out of undivided India. Pakistan has always been waging war for the last 66 years. In 1965 and in 1999, it had frontier war but indirectly through terrorist activities, it’s attacking India. Recently, 5 Indian soldiers were killed by Pakistani army. On 26 November, 2008, Pakistani Inter Service Intelligence sent Kasab and his team to attack Mumbai. Daily there is some news of killing innocent Indians in Kashmir. But we couldn’t do anything to retaliate Pakistani actions. If US can attack Iraq and Afghanistan to eliminate Saddam Hussain and Osama Bin Laden then why can’t we attack Pakistan when we have so many proves against Pakistan? I don't understand that instead of having superior army strength why can’t we have a war against Pakistan? It’s all due to weak political boss controlling the army. In Pakistan, the control is in the hand of Pakistani army. That’s why they can do anything against India anytime. But our army has got its hands tied up and the control is in the hands of politicians who aren’t capable of taking decision. American government sent its marine troops in Pakistan to kill Osama Bin Laden when it got the sure report that Laden was hiding in Pakistan. But Indian government hasn’t done anything yet in spite of know that all its most wanted criminals like Dawood Ibrahim are hiding in Pakistan. Actually, Pakistani administration is giving support to all those who are against India.
Time has come to bring some changes in the political as well social condition of our country. We are the largest exporters of doctors and engineers to the world but we have many diseases and poor infrastructure in our country. Time has come to throw corruption out of our country. Corruption isn’t just limited to taking or giving bribes. Dishonesty with one’s duty is corruption. We have to bring the social change in our country. Then only we will have freedom from all evils and then only we will have freedom in real sense.
