Open Letter to All the powers that be in the Indian Education System
Strains of Rahman’s Maa tujhe Salaam blare out of speakers for the last time as India’s 68th Independence Day draws to a close. As I walk home I think to myself what a sham celebrating our Independence really is. I don’t mean that we are not free to do and live as we like, because we truly are and we owe a great debt to all the people who stood up and fought for us and our future.
It’s a sham because we don’t know and don’t care about what we’ve done with our Independence.
