Tomorrow, on 15 August India celebrates its Independence Day. It is India’s 66th year of celebrating its independence from the British rule. It is a national holiday with parades, flag hoisting and so many cultural programs. Each state celebrates the independence day gorgeously. This year also the country is ready to celebrate its independence day on tomorrow.
India attained many achievements and golden feathers in its crown after the independence. It is the renowned democratic state that values the opinion of each citizen; it strives for the well-being of its citizen. India’s unity in diversity is the one that the world gets wondered. India is a country with 29 states, ( the 29th one is recently proclaimed Telengana, the part of Andhra Pradesh), with people speaking different languages, each state has its own cultural, political, economical and environmental diversity. There are so many caste and creed and each celebrates their festivals at different times. Along with the harvest festivals, it becomes a land of festivals and entertainments. On each celebration, the unity of the people is seen and respected. India is famous for its scenic diversity, a tourist can witness so many beautiful places like, mountains, rivers, seas, water falls and enthusiastic fields. Tourists can taste many palatable dishes, each one differs from the other.
But this democracy is misused by corrupted politicians. Though, it boasts on so many amenities and developments, the slums and people living there is suffering a lot, because of poverty, illiteracy and poor sanitation. Women and young girls are not safe to travel alone. Child abuses are growing and the number of missing children are increasing each year. The over crowded cities are facing the challenges of proper wast management. The difference between the haves and the have-nots are widening and this create discomforts and that lead to social issues.
India has a long way to go for becoming a well developed country. India has the privilege of man power; but they need support and better facility from the government and authority. Politics should be kept away and all should work harmoniously for the India dreamed by the great freedom fighters. LET US HOPE FOR A BETTER TOMORROW.
