With the upcoming Republic Day, some of us are happy that it’s a long weekend so we can chillax or travel, some would be excited for the Republic Day celebrations with their building friends or at school while some would enjoy the Republic Day parade on TV. Everyone has their reason to look up to it.
For most of us, we have not witnessed the Independence Revolution and the process of climbing every step to celebrate being Republic, we have just read in our textbooks. So, do we value it in the true sense? I keep on wondering and dwell deep inside my heart many a time to find some answers.
The first feeling which always pops up is that I love my country. Everything else comes then. I belong to a motherland which has rich cultural history and diversified geographies which gives me so much more than any other country. But then the big question hits me, asking me, do we value this?
We are blessed with so many cultural diversities, so we can explore and learn from them. We can enjoy and understand the reason behind each festival. Explore culinary delights of different regions and discover new travel destinations within our country itself. Some of us take benefit from it however, some use it for their own personal benefits.
We have so much in hand, but we don’t respect it. We have the so-called “chalta hai” attitude towards everything. We have complaints about our officials, but we don’t want to take any step towards changing ourselves. We can find solutions to a lot of problems by mutual co-operation. A simple thing like if we follow the rules we could avoid traffic snarls, we could keep our country clean like we keep our homes, sanitization etc. This would eventually help you, me and all. We would have a healthy environment to grow in.
We may not have witnessed the struggle to achieve a free India, but we can surely contribute to the progress of our country. I am someone like all a common man who faces similar issues still feel that joined hands gets faster results than pointing fingers. To be the change, we need to be the one to start – We are the change!
Happy Republic Day 🙂
