63 years and we are fast becoming a ‘too-independent’ nation. One by one we have been breaking the age old customs and taboos and enslaving ourselves to the chains of freedom.
Tell me your thoughts on the following subjects:
Have we become too free to choose the life and death of unborn babies? Because we are not ready enough or because life is young enough! Besides babies are uncool- diapers, feeding, baby fat, sleepless nights, missed parties…Don’t we call this freedom to live?
Have we become too free to fill our television, films and music with stuff that has no regard to moral and social ethos? Our kids are become a moving encyclopedia on sex even before they attain their puberty. Our actress show off all the god-given and surgeon implanted assets. We enjoy the jokes and lyrics with dual meaning (along with our children). We fill our screen with mindless violence and eulogize heroes with negative traits…. Don’t we call this freedom of expression?
We covet what rightfully belongs to others. It can be positions, wives, husbands, water, air, grades etc. Then we adorn it with a beautiful name- ‘Ambition’.
We cut down trees for road widening. We fill in the natural water bodies. We adorn even the most scenic places with vulgar concrete structures. A family of four will have four vehicles. We clog the traffic and waste the fuel. We call this- ‘development’.
We indulge in any form of sex- homo, hetero, bi. Moreover we proudly display our variety of tastes. We have removed the age, sex, relationship restrictions to copulate. Today porn is one of the thriving industries in
And last but not the least our media is free to fill in anything they want. They no longer play any role in nation building. As long as it’s eye-catchy, anything is good to go. So the wrong people, the wrong ideologies attain the prime space. This is called freedom for media.
