Martyr's Day

23rd March 1931 - The day when Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev had willingly sacrificed their life for freedom of India from the Britishers, so that we can live in a free India.

Years later, today when we see the things happening around us, I sometimes wonder whether the sacrifice they made, have we really valued it ? Is this the India they had envisaged while they took the brave step ? I am saddened to say, no, we haven't.

Today while watching a program on TV, which show cases the lives of famous bandits during the British Era, I see that, two brave guys, who so called turned into Bandits, to loot the Britishers or those Landlords who were supporting the English. And the money they looted was shared among the other poor people, who were continuously harassed either by these landlords or the Britishers.
Finally, the British manages to catch them , but only after one of the insiders reveal their secrets to them,

Isn't it sad that, always Britishers have managed to play the divide and rule and get their job done. But do we really blame them ? Isnt it really who support the British who are the actual traitors of India ?
And yes they exist even till today.

I mean I see such people, even today in our offices. They are the so called Project Managers who aceept almost everything what their bosses sitting in US/UK are dictating and then without battling a eyelid agree to everything. They will hardly say no to them and make the teams here slog a lot to get the job done. Would these todays traitors  do the same against their Firangi bosses ? No. They don't . Infact they leave no stone unturned to lick their shoes when they come to India. Its sometimes so embarassing to see our own people dance to their tunes, not really because the Firangis ask them, but more to, on their own will.
Somewhere deep down, they still want to be slaves of the English, irrespective whether the English want them or not.

Its an incident which happened today in office made me write this post.

Sorry Bhagat Singh, Rajguru  and Sukhdev. We probably didn't live up to your expectations.
