Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July. And now, read this bit.

From the Declaration of Independence, July 4th, 1776, here’s a bit that Indians need to ponder:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

I have highlighted one bit that Indians should take to heart. India is well on its way to absolute despotism having suffered “a long train of abuses and usurpations.” It is time for India to have its own “4th of July, 1776″ and fight a revolutionary war of independence.

    Theres something called testicular fortitude that Indians or may I say Hindus have been denied the right by none other than God himself. 4th of July in India can only happen if British were to come back.

    Till then, … till them is the misery.
