The Nation will celebrate the 75th year of its independence on 15th August, 2022 It was a long journey commenced from the day we attained freedom on 15th August 1947. In that journey, our country has created ever so many milestones in its progress from a primitive economy to one of the performing developing economies of the world. In retrospect many of us do feel that the country could have done better. Strikingly it disappoints the large majority of the people that the great objective of creating an egalitarian society remained a mirage. The trajectory of the development of the country in the past three decades especially clearly indicates that the concept of egalitarianism has been abandoned by its rulers
On this day, it is our duty to rededicate ourselves to the cause of our Nation. Besides the conventional practice of participating in the Independence Day celebration at institutional level, the Government and especially the Prime Minister has called upon us to make it an event at every home. Pensioners are normally the senior most persons at every house and we must ensure that we take the initiative to hoist the flag at our house tops on 15th August 2022 and explain to our young members the sacrifice rendered by the freedom fighters of the country. But for their dedication and determination, perhaps we would not have been enjoying the freedom even today. The role of the working class and the revolutionaries, which unfortunately did not get the requisite prominence in the recorded history of the freedom movement must get special mention on this occasion. Our Constitution, the federal structure of our Nation, the democratic concept of governance were the product of deep deliberations and aspirations of those who were active in the freedom struggle. The fact that those high ideals are on severe strain in the present-day governance of the country is to be brought home. We must have no hesitation in stating that the concept of independence is not only freedom from alien colonial rule but embracing a governance procedure for the well- being of the entirety of the populace of the country without allowing room for any discrimination.
Let us hoist the flag explaining the concept of an egalitarian society for that alone will keep the Nation free for ever.
