The best thing about India?There are so many reasons to be thankful for Independent India.
India is the country of hope.It’s the country of opportunity.It’s a country where the ancient practices of yoga and Ayurveda are discussed along with the latest in medical science.It’s a country where people come to find peace.
But peace is inside you.It’s not a place or thing.It’s not a person who can give you peace.Only you can.This understanding came to me when I started reading Gita.The adventures the Hindu mythology offers for the fertile mind is unmatched in other scriptures.
It’s a country of diversity.It’s a country with myriad colors and beautiful nature.It’s a country which lost its way and is trying to find it back.
It’s a country whose social fabric makes family important.It’s a country which made it possible for me to be a doctor.Expenses of Rupees 250 per.Books I bought second-hand my mama (maternal uncle helped ) helped.
It’s a country where people everyday struggle to make ends meet and still celebrate all festivals.It’s a country with many promises which only we can keep.It’s a country which had termites eating it from inside, but now things are getting better,
It’s a country where we once believed in see no evil, harm no evil and speak no evil.Unfortunately, we need a new saying!
It’s a country of Satyameva Jayate.The truth alone triumphs.I have long discussions about truth and the relative merits of it with my hubby.
It’s also a country where we believe Lord Krishna said that
The truth which hurts is worse than the falsehood which heals.
It’s a country where Vivekananda said there’s no worship, greater than the worship of humanity.
It’s a country where we got rid of child marriage.Where Raja Ram Mohan Roy stopped sati and paved the way for widow remarriage.
It’s the country where Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose left Congress when he did not believe in what they wanted for India. A chapter of history very cleverly white washed!
It’s a country trapped between good and evil.It’s a country struggling to balance the old with the young.It’s a country trying to keep its history intact and carve a better future.It’s a country which wants its citizens to believe in secularism.It’s a country which wants you to be proud of the national song and national anthem.It’s a country where little girls dare to dream.It’s a country which gave me the chance to have a concurrent second career as an author and a blogger.
It’s a country where I can die for.
Cool India fact:
India is the largest democracy.It is an ancient and still living civilization (at least 10, 000 years old).
