To Liberation and Being

Independence is one thing. Liberation is another. The two aren't the same. May Liberation be India's fate. Happy Liberation on the Independence Day!

To Liberation and Being
"To make a great future India, the whole secret lies in organization, accumulation of power, co-ordination of wills." - Swami Vivekananda

Great violence lies in the distance between Being and Becoming. What you are, you don't accept. What you aren't you want to be.

The structure of your being lays the foundation of your physical self.

Your flight starts from standing there. Firm.

In that standing is the power of ascendency.

Wobbling ones don't remain standing for long.

The fetish for becoming what one is not lends to a wobbled existence. There is no glory in that.

When one is firm in one's being. Whatever that may be. There is an immediate and necessary liberation.

No idea, no limitation binds one. There is nothing holding back.

Freedom from external powers is the prerequisite for the environment where existential liberation can thrive.

India is finally on the verge of leaving the vestiges of imperialist shackles aside.

They should not remain. Even a bit will bring all back.

Liberation does not happen in percentages.

Either it is or not.

To Liberation, my India


The Hindi words on the banner are from Shri Ramdhari Singh Dinkar's poem, given below.

नमो, नमो, नमो

नमो स्वतंत्र भारत की ध्वजा, नमो, नमो
नमो नगाधिराज-शृंग की विहारिणी
नमो अनंत सौख्य-शक्ति-शील-धारिणी
प्रणय-प्रसारिणी, नमो अरिष्ट-वारिणी
नमो मनुष्य की शुभेषणा-प्रचारिणी
नवीन सूर्य की नई प्रभा, नमो, नमो
नमो स्वतंत्र भारत की ध्वजा, नमो, नमो

हम न किसी का चाहते तनिक, अहित, अपकार
प्रेमी सकल जहान का भारतवर्ष उदार
सत्य न्याय के हेतु, फहर फहर ओ केतु
हम विरचेंगे देश-देश के बीच मिलन का सेतु
पवित्र सौम्य, शांति की शिखा, नमो, नमो
नमो स्वतंत्र भारत की ध्वजा, नमो, नमो

तार-तार में हैं गुंथा ध्वजे, तुम्हारा त्याग
दहक रही है आज भी, तुम में बलि की आग
सेवक सैन्य कठोर, हम चालीस करोड़
कौन देख सकता कुभाव से ध्वजे, तुम्हारी ओर
करते तव जय गान, वीर हुए बलिदान
अंगारों पर चला तुम्हें ले सारा हिन्दुस्तान
प्रताप की विभा, कृषानुजा, नमो, नमो

नमो स्वतंत्र भारत की ध्वजा, नमो, नमो
