Our Independence Day is more than just a long weekend to go out on a holiday. Its much more than a reason for an online shopping sale!
Everywhere I see millions of ways to celebrate this day with brands, websites, hotels and what not trying their butt hard to cash in!!
I do not want a SALE or a huge DISCOUNT or long weekend to celebrate this Independence Day!
You may call it a rant, be it so.. My concerns about dubbing our life’s important days into a reason to shop or book a hotel or rent a car or use a perfume are raising above a level of “It’s OKAY” mark. With this post, I do not ask any of my fellow citizens of India to raise a voice, or share the post or sit at home or anything. I just wish to remind you, all of you, the real reason why we need to celebrate this Independence day in the true spirit of being a free country. It’s not just the duty of our Soldiers to feel more patriotic because they have raised up the arms to protect the country, we civilians must equally feel and celebrate the day for the real reason.
I will celebrate this Independence day recalling the sacrifice of those who gave up on everything else for the freedom of our country, feeling proud of those who are protecting the borders, feeling hopeful of the leaders who WE have voted into power to make wise decisions for us, believing in myself, that I will lead a life that counts as a service to my nation in any way when I depart. I live in The Republic of India, where out of the Billion plus, each one of us counts!!
