|We are all set to celebrate the true spirit of independence with all our heart. But at the same time, let us not forget that all independence comes with a responsibility that when we coexist, fundamental laws of cooperation, tolerance and mutual progress must govern our existence. Let us express our belief in each other’s individuality. Let us have respect for all citizens of our beloved nation. Let us not forget that when it comes to choosing between humanity and human boundaries - our choice and guiding angel must always be humanity. Nothing should supersede our need for love and tolerance. One of the celebrated philosopher during the French revolution, Jean Jacques Rousseau, expressed in his most important treatise, The Social Contract: Man was born free, and he is everywhere in chains. One man thinks himself the master of others, but remains more of a slave than they.|
It is sad that we continuously fight in our life to achieve salvation and independence in their fundamental sense, and, in the course of that, we do achieve success, glory and even financial independence, but the goals and vision with which we start our struggle are generally forgotten and abandoned. So is the case of our freedom struggle, about 64 years have passed since we got independence, i.e. in 1947, we are still enslaved by our desire. Despite having achieved a social standing in life, we are still bound by the boundaries set by race, religion, region, gender and language. While I understand these boundaries are natural for common people, I am sure at the same time that these would never exist for an emancipated and grown-up society. We should have come out of this slavery after such a long journey we have undertaken in a politically free country.
Independence is when we do the right thing freely. However, I understand that a literal independence will never exist as we all are bound together by our needs, sorrows and joys. It is fine that we are not independent that way. But the fact that some people on the basis of race, religion, region, gender and language are being forced to succumb to their independence and are forced to lead an isolated life within our own social space, we still have to go a long way to achieve independence in its most fundamental sense.
Right to independence comes out of a more fundamental duty called responsibility. Unless we will be ready to be responsible, independence will have no real and productive existence in our life. That is why a modern political philosopher Emma Goldman says: The most unpardonable sin in society is independence of thought. Voltaire, the French historian and philosopher, too has similar opinion when he expresses ironically: The true character of liberty is independence, maintained by force. Injustice in the end produces independence. Here, he too is referring to independence without responsibility. We are independent and, going by the natural succession, we must be both responsible and independent. Emotions of mutual tolerance and progress must govern our existence. Let us have a faith in each other’s individuality. Let us have respect for all citizens of the nation. Our actions must always be guided by humanity and not by man-made or political boundaries. Nothing should supersede our need for love, tolerance and progress.
Happy Independence Day to all!
