Celebrating Independence Day with pride and prejudice

By Arnab Mitra

OH13215_INDEPENDENCE DAY PARADE_15AUG15_M SAMANTAKolkata: The 69th Independence Day was celebrated yesterday with full flavor all around West Bengal. In the morning, the Chief Minister of West Bengal Mamata Banerjee hoisted the national flag with a colorful procession on the Red Road. On the occasion of 69th Independence Day, she requested the citizens to maintain peace and harmony and not to get involved in any kind of riots.

The tourist spots and restaurants were flooded with people. The local clubs organized some cultural program in association with the sports tournament. But there are also some sections of people who are celebrating this day without any cloth and food. This situation clearly raises a serious question that are we really cherishing the essence of being independent or are we still trapped.
