Sisters and Brothers,
The realization that we are one must go down from our lips to our behaviour. We respect the freedom of others as we do for ourselves – never feel distaste (ghin) for the caste, religion or status of others, never inflict discrimination or exploit labour. The nation belongs to all. We respect the farmers, artisans and workers who feed the nation, and work for their liberation from exploitation and inequality. Whenever, the notion of superiority of caste, religion or race or selfishness overtakes you, look into your soul. This will bring us closer to each other and unite the nation.
During the foreign rule, we set high example of soul force; we defeated colonialism through truth and non-violence. Today we term slogan shouting as patriotism/ nationalism. We forget that Allaho Akbar, Jai Shri Ram, Har Har Mahadev and Bharat Mata ki Jai, uplift our soul when said with humility and innocence and become sin when said to assert our authority with burning hatred. Ninety percent countrymen (farmers and workers of all religions) don’t shout slogans but serve the nation by their deeds (sacrificing half of their earnings to the growth of the nation). Keep their faces in front of your eyes when visualizing the nation and saying Jai Hind.
