As Einstein has pointed out that ‘we cannot expect a different result if we keep on doing the same thing over and over again’
Listening to patriotic songs and watching movies of great inspiration, blaming our leaders, political parties and the drama attached is one way to feel better about yourselves, but what is it that we, ‘the people’, are doing, differently?
Each individual focusing on just their surroundings, shall bring about a collective change. Living in the past, holding a grudge serves no purpose, any more than blocking our minds and hearts. Let us be inspired on this Republic Day to bring about our inner light into awareness! Learn from what went wrong and be open to possibilities.
‘Our affected souls, availing love’s aid,
Have secured a place subject to no ill
Forces that upstage and shake mortal faith,
Shaking foundations desired to be still.’
-Mimin Zomi in Titanic Sonnets
