All these years we celebrated Independence Day and celebrated our freedom, fought for bravely and selflessly by our forefathers. Even though we knew what it would mean to not have freedom we never understood what it meant, until now. Freedom has a new meaning and it means so much more today as we as a country as a world and as a species fight this virus. We are no longer free to do anything and everything we please. A simple trip to the cinema hall or the gym is out of the question. It is a battle that we all are in together and the COVID19 frontline warriors are leading this fight for months now selflessly and fiercely. I am positive that we will win this fight soon. My only hope is that we enter the new world with a sense of a better understanding and compassion. We need to learn to be thankful for what we have. We celebrate independence today with a hope of reclaiming the freedom that we once enjoyed. Happy Independence Day! JAI HIND 🇮🇳
