A bird hunter was selling partridges in the bird market. He had a lot of partridges in a big netted basket, but there was only one in a small mesh basket.
A customer asked,
“What is the cost of one partridge?”
The customer asked the price of the one of the small basket.
So he said,
“I don’t want to sell it, but if you insist,
it will cost you 750 bucks!”
The customer was surprised,
“Why does it cost so much?”
“Actually this is my own pet partridge. It intelligently works to trap other partridges by calling them in its own language. When they gather at one place without thinking, I easily hunt them. That’s why I keep it with me all the time and give its choicest feed to keep it in good humour.”
This small story is applicable verbatim to our political scenario. We became slaves again and again to foreign mercenaries and power due to such intelligent traitors. Our history is replete with them.
All invaders had the support of the so-called highly educated and intelligent Indians. These rogue elements were educated to rule over and keep India poor. If General Dyer was responsible for the Jallianwala bagh massacre, who were the sepoys who fired at the innocent protestors?
Even today, when we see an elite group openly talking and acting against the interests of the country, our heads are lowered in shame or embarrassment, because they justify their action by going off on a tangent with their overly verbose platitudes.
Today marks the 125th birth anniversary of iconic freedom fighter Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, who contributed crucially in the Indian Independence Movement with his revolutionary and nationalist ideas by raising the Indian National Army, also known as the Azad Hind Fauz. The Central Government has decided to start the Republic Day celebrations from today to include Netaji’s anniversary, known as Parakram Diwas (Day of Valour).
Some of important quotes of Netaji are as under:
*Freedom is not given, it is taken.
*We should have but one desire today- the desire to die so that India may live.
*One individual may die for an idea, but that idea after his death incarnate itself in a thousand lives.
*Remember the eternal law: you must give, if you want to get.
*No real change in history has ever been achieved by discussions only.
On this auspicious day, we can simply hope that better sense will prevail everywhere. Let’s salute the iconic freedom fighter with a pledge to work towards the betterment of our country.
I conclude with शुभ सुख चैन (Good luck Peace), the national anthem used by Azad Hind Fauz.
