Republic Day: A day Of Reckoning and Introspection about Individual Freedom and the Freedom of the Nations



Reckoning is still on. On this Republic Day  we should also introspect about the question whether Individual Freedom is as or more important than the freedom of Nations.

This day we have given us a path to tread on. Now the time is again to decide whether we want to be a Nation of Proactive, Democratic people or want to be Reactionary. Let us chant a silent prayer for right path. Our Republic was started with high hopes and we should maintain the pace.

May our Nation and our Freedom be our Passion.

Here is the kalam of Ghalib on passion

partav-e-ḳhur se hai shabnam ko fanā kī ta.alīm

maiñ bhī huuñ ek ināyat kī nazar hote tak

yak nazar besh nahīñ fursat-e-hastī ġhāfil

garmī-e-bazm hai ik raqs-e-sharar hote tak

ġham-e-hastī kā ‘asad’ kis se ho juz marg ilaaj

sham.a har rañg meñ jaltī hai sahar hote tak
