I am not patriotic. I am against the idea of borders or nations. They divide us and ferment un-symbiotic competition. It leads to things like the Nuclear bomb.
I cherish my independence more than the common man does. I am not a man without morals, just a man with principles.
I cheer for the Indian cricket team and not the Australian, even if we mostly lose to them. Just like I cheer for my College and not the college nearby, even if they have all the babes.
Independence day is for us to think what it is to be free. What it is to be the master of your own self.
Celebrate it. Cherish it. Happy Independence Day.
