We have gained freedom from the British rule but what have we done with our independence? It has been 63 years since we have gained independence. We are a free nation now.
But still after so many years, the question remains the same. We proudly claim that we are independent from a foreign rule but we are still not free from jealousy, intolerance and hatred towards our fellow countrymen.
We are full of bitterness towards other religions, traditions and always try to suppress the growth of the other. We are tied in shackles of terrorism, false ideologies, corruption, communal violence, and class — caste distinctions and so on.
We tend to forget that independence is not only living freely but also allowing others to live freely. We say that we are a free nation but our behavior suggests that we are still not free. We admire other nations but forget to count the good points of our nation.
We love western culture and try to avoid Indian culture. We wear jeans, skirts and often criticize our saris and suits. We take pride in a foreign language but fail to learn and appreciate our language. No doubt we are independent but monetarily paralyzed.
We do not think independently, we often think what others make us think. All this really makes one think that are we really independent? Are we a free nation? Are we worthy of any praise? These are haunting questions which we may hesitate to answer but they are standing in our way of success and have to be answered as soon as possible.

It is just a momentary laziness and lack of encouragement that has led to such a situation. So I call upon all the people especially the youth of the nation, on this Independence Day, to come forward and break all the shackles to make the country truly independent and free.
Everyone should pledge to work towards the development of India in a true sense and make India — a place full of love and happiness and mark it as a successful nation on the world map. Only then, will we be independent in true sense of the term.Home / Essays / Is India Truely Independent Is India Really Independent?
