Happy Independence Day 2012

Independence Day‏ - Indian Flag -Bangalore
Today is India's Independence Day and I am amazed how naive Indians in the US are. They call it India's birthday and there is no greater absurdity than this. India was not born on August 15, 1947! India was freed from the clutches of the oppressive British and we gained independence. That is it.

I would like to think this as some sort of a conspiracy of the liberal media, the so called intelligentsia, and of course those who consider it fashionable and cool to say that India was nothing till the British occupied and gave us an identity. I wonder when Indians will really recognize their true heritage, history and identity and say the right things.

The way things are going on, I don't think it will ever happen. Our people will unfortunately remained enslaved by the popular myths and media images that make them think and identify with this erroneous image.
