India is an independent nation but Indians have not achieved freedom

India may be an independent nation but Indians will not achieve freedom until they redeem the loss of every single drop of blood sacrificed by their Heroes over the past 1,500 years. 

India is a rare country whose 10,000 to 12,000 years old civilization still exists and flourishes. Even in ancient times, Bharat was not only culturally rich but scientifically advanced as well. Past evidences also indicate that Bharatiyas have the best brains, be it in the field of Art, Science, Engineering, Commerce, Economics, Foreign Affairs OR Defence. 

Indian scientists, mathematicians and engineers introduced revolutionary concepts that changed the world forever -- For example, Aryabhat (zero), Baudhayan (pi), Kanad (atom theory), Varahamihira (hydrology, geology and ecology) and Charak (Indian medicine).    

India also produced Kshtrayias such as Rama, Arjuna, Bhishm Pitamah, Chandragupta Maurya, Ashoka, Vikramaditya, Prithviraj Chauhan, Maharana Pratap and Shivaji Maharaj who were skilled in warfare and war strategies. These people were strong because their identity was deeply rooted in the Bhartiya Sanskriti. 

During our freedom struggle as well, Bharat Mata gifted many fearless fighters in the form of Bhagat Singh, Udham Singh, Chandrashekhar Azad, Subhash Chandra Bose, Lala Lajpat Rai and Mangal Pandey. These people fought for the honor of India and never compromised on their principles irrespective of the situation.  

To understand Bharatiya values and its cultural significance, we must learn about the sacrifices of our heroes and to reclaim India's glory, we must strive to live the life of our heroes, that is, a life of sacrifice, bravery, hard work and team work. The video below aptly describes the greatness of Bharat:

This song is a product of an era when entire nation was under the grip of patriotism and idealism. As time passed, the fever of patriotism began to wither off and Indians became more interested in material gains for self comforts. Sixty years hence, possession of material gains has become the most dominant driving force in everyone's lives. This obsession has made Indians insensitive and impotent which has taken away their fighting spirit.  

India's fore fathers would have never dreamt that our motherland will suffer not only due to the crimes perpetrated by India's rulers but also by the impotence of the common Indians. They would have never imagined that Indians, who were once so proud of their sanskriti, will accept a lower dignity of life. They would have never thought that Indians will transform into a set of people who will obsessively pursue selfish goals.  

Looking at the current state of our motherland, our ancestors must be writhing in pain. 

Our ancestors suffered while fighting the enemies but their souls still continue to suffer given India's current condition. Their suffering has not ended and it is our duty to bring peace to their souls. To bring peace, we must strive to fulfill the dreams of our fore fathers, that is, we must try to create a united India (Akhand Bharat) wherein every Indian lives a dignified life and every Indian is a responsible citizen. An Akhand Bharat wherein the leaders selflessly work with integrity and courage towards protecting and developing the nation.

An Akhand Bharat where saffron is the predominant part of our lives -- A Bharat where we live for saffron and die for saffron. 

Jai Maa Bharti! Jai Hind!
