Changes are parts and parcels of life Man is slave of his own seven decades the cynical rule of the British ended and it was the new dawn for India. Dawn of independence. Dawn of Freedom. Struggle was hard and Goal was very far away. After 70-years India s now a major power in the world. Economic giant and the fastest growing country. But still when we look through this year’s we must ask to ourselves are we really independent??? We aren’t! Still today to some extent or too much extent we are the mental SLAVE of the Britishers have many reasons to say that. The long sinister British Rule has had so much impact on our culture and minds that we haven’t received the essence of Indian civilization and culture People still don’t recognise themselves as children of Mohenjo-Daro the oldest and the greatest civilization of the world. Thomas Babington, first baron Macaulay introduce western culture and Education system in India. And taking into consideration the present system, he has surely succeeded. The Indian Independence movement encompassed activity and ideas aiming to end the east India company rule (1757-1857).and British India Empire (1857-1947)in the Indian subcontinent continent. The movement spanned a total of 90 Years. Dawn of Independence We aren’t independent. Because Rapidly Rising population low productivity in Agriculture Under utilizes resources unemployment: social factors..Due to continuous rise in population, there is chronic unemployment and under employment in India. Poverty is the just reflection of unemployment. The Big five factors of poverty include: ignore, disease, apathy, dishonest y and dependency. This further leads to high level of illiteracy, Poor health care facility and lack of access financial resources. Caste system and unequal distribution of income and resources is another reason of poverty in India. Corruption is both a major cause and a result of poverty around the world. A combination of feudal mindset that exploits object poverty, Forces people to work as domestic workers from a very young age. Parents offer their young children to work in the people’s homes in return for food and A low very low wage that in many cases never get paid. These people have no skills or support and grew into adulthood with nowhere to go but remain working under terrible condition for a lifetime. Young girls faces torture as they are rapidly sold from one Trafficker to another .In many cases young girls are drawn with the promise of jobs and marriage… This is the story of India, as it co-exists with achievements in IT, Space, science and technology and industry. As we unfurl the tri colour. Do a spare a thought for those 18.35. Millions fellow citizens who still await for their freedom. It s time to move from sympathy to action. no better way to make that pledge Better late then never.
