India celebrates its 60th Republic day on 26 January 2008.
Yes, truly speaking, Republic Day in India means the day on which India became a Republic, with the Constitution coming into force, guiding the country, administrators, politicians and countrymen to the path of fraternity, brotherhood, enshrining a number of fundamental rights.
But, I wanna know do we really live the way our Constituion makers wanted us to? Are we truly follwoing the path of the truthfulness, sacrifice, equality, no discrimination?
We have our fundamental rights, but do we enjoy them in the true sense?
Are women in real sense treated equally here? Isn't the gap between the rich and the poor continuosly widening?
The site of poverty, with starving children lying in tattered clothes, begging with both hands, can make anyone's heart cry.. but what are our administrators doing? Sitting pretty and eating on the resources of the commoners.
India is extremely proud of the rich heritage it bequeathed from its forefathers. Let us strive to maintain the zeal to move our country to the path of actual glory, where none will be rich or poor and all will be treated equal.
But is that possible?
60 Republic days have passed yet poverty continues to sprawl around our country.
60years Have gone by yet the poor continue languishing in poverty
60th Republic day-- 60 years have gone yet we are still in the race of development
60th Republic day --- 60 years have passed and we are in the process of transforming
ourselves from an arms free nation to a nation fighting for the NUclear deal
with the United States.
60 republic day and we seem to be forgetting the legacy of the great MAHATMA GANDHI, WHO we all dearly call
BAAPU--THE FATHER OF THE NATION.
Is this all that we were born for?
what is India going to be in the next 60 years?
