The Article :
As you have read the chat, when AS said "Let's celebrate to remind all sacrifices and struggles to obtain this". When I saw this message, it was found to be a negative one as it was celebrating with negative thoughts in our minds. Which shouldn't be the case. What I wanted to tell her was that, more than putting our focus on the sacrifice and struggle, we should think how lucky we are that we were born after independence. Instead of remembering sacrifice and struggle, we should be thankful to the great souls who worked for it and learn from it and celebrate with a positive feeling.. Let me tell you how!!!!!
Let me ask you a question, when you think about Indian Independence... do you get a feeling of "hatred, sacrifice, struggle" which is negative or a feeling of "love for the nation, thankfulness, learning" which is positive. Think about it.
For some, this negative thought have created a deep sense of hatred toward the people who had ruled. Before independence, India was always ruled by different kings, some positive and some negative and the various people in various parts of India fought against various rulers and at the end positivity won and was always remembered. So what is the message for us to learn from all this? History, is "His-story" and it is a story for us to learn about what to do and what not to do. It just teaches what are consequence for each action that was taken in the past. For example, Look into your life are you following a British Rule or a democracy. At that time it was physical battle and now we are battling with words and mind. Think about it. What are rules are followed within your family and how can you change it? The answers to all this is already in our history. Whatever we are experiencing right now is already experienced by someone else in the history and all you got to do to find them and their solution.
So if we focus on the negativity, how do you think it would influence our lives. What we don't realise is that this hatred to a certain rule is creating a negative feeling in all of us which is attracting more negativity in our present lives which has nothing to do with you and only someones's past story which is wrote by a third person. Our mind subconsciously tends to follow the rules that we hate the most because that is what is deeply rooted in your mind and we take actions in life according to it. But is this really good for us to think this way. Think About it. If you have a chance to go back in time and ask any great soul who worked for independence. They would all say they did it for the Love of the country and they offered their lives to the country and not as sacrifice or struggle. If they would have thought it as a sacrifice or struggle, they wouldn't have achieved this independence. Therefore, It is all about "True Love" and in True love, it is not called as sacrifice or struggle, it is called as offering. Now we as a third person will only see it as sacrifice or struggle, because it is difficult for them to think the same way. But if you developed the same "Love" they wont see it as a struggle. For example, A mother whose child is in trouble, would go to any extent to save her child or even give her life away to protect the child. Same way there are similar kind of sons who go to any extent to protect their mother. Would you say that it is a struggle or sacrifice or would you say it is "True Love". Think About it. Similarly every great soul did it for the Love of the country as they saw India (your country) as their mother. This make is all about love which is a positive feeling.
If these great souls who had worked for independence still existed today, all they would do is share their experience and tell us to focus one what we can learn from them and apply those teaching to your life. Every great soul's life story is teaching us something about the right and wrong action which they have taken and the consequence of it. Learn from it and apply into your life. Celebrate their teachings and the love for the country rather than their sacrifice and struggle.
I am know I might offend some people over here.. But i am just writing this just because your mind set should change so that you can feel better. Reading this till here I know for some you would feel very odd that is because the negativity within you is getting disturbed with this positive reading. Even i felt the same way when I was typing this.
So from now on should not remember the struggle rather learn how they achieved the independence, what was right & wrong and apply that in your life. The great souls would be much for happier if you do that. For example : Mahatma Gandhi followed the principle of Non-violence and how many of you follow it. Majority of you would say he is the father of the nation but do we really consider him that and follow the advices. You are not and you cannot follow him!!! That is why you call it as a struggle. There is a quote that people say, is said by Mahatma Gandhi "If someone slaps you on one side of you face, turn the other one to him" .. That quote has the biggest solution for most of the teens today who gets bullied or gets irritated when people make fun of them. Many teens have sent me message asking how to handle when people are making fun of them, calling nicknames, bad names, taunting them. They all building so much pressure within themselves, going to depression, frustrated because they don't know what to do. Their answer to their problem is in this quote. Let me tell you how.
Let us forget the slapping part of it because now a days people have moved from physical attacks to attack by words. So what I told them that people make fun of you by calling names or bad words only because they know it is hurting you. If they know that it has no effect on you, they will automatically stop. They expect a negative reaction from you like anger or irritation and they will keep doing until they get a negative reaction from you. So next time if someone call you something... give a smile and tell them keep calling or give a smile and move on with no anger inside you. You heart and the other person heart will connect and they will lose and will stop. My full name is Deekshith Parassini and during my school people used to call me Madhuri Dixit at first I used to get irritated and told my dad .. You should put my name as "Shaktiman" or "Ram" as they were strong people in my eyes and an actress was a sign of weakness.So my dad told me a story of "Jack & Joe - The Story of Two Dogs" (which i will share with you some other time). After telling the story he told me "So that makes you the No 1 actress in India and let that be your strength" and.... so next time when they called me, I told them "Thank you for calling me as the best actress of India & they stopped then and there..Shocked. The best part is that this experience gave me so much confidence that next time when they called my actual name, I used to play with them back by saying "Please call me Madhuri Dixit as I always want to be No1. Which freaked them out and told they told me sorry and everything became positive. Thankful you to my dad for this lesson as my dad always us to tell me "Never be a remote control of someone else, where they keep pressing the buttons and you start changing channel (Emotions) ". You can make various slangs with my name and I was called everything in my school and college but my reply was as long as i know you are calling me "I am good and will respond with a smile". This applies to every child in school or adult and we have to learn from Mahatma Gandhi and see how each one of you can get independence from people making fun of you. Once you overcome this, celebrate the Independence Day being Thankful to Mahatma Gandhi and his message. That is a true positive celebration of Independence Day. Different great souls have taken different approach to get independence from India some right and some wrong and we should see what we can learn from it and take India (Or your country) to the next level.
Now what i am going to share is a complicated concept and do comments if you have a doubts. To take India to next level, we have to change yourself first.... Consider yourself as India itself which needs independence from negativity. Our true nature is positive by the surrounding is making use negative . But what do you do? Do you really fight for our independence. Think about .. How can we learn from the great souls and what they did you India and apply it to our lives. Now that make you a better person and if everyone does the same think of the impact and changes that would be brought in India.
