The feeling of patroitism arises only around Independence day or Republic day for many people in our country. Only around this two days we see discussions happening around freedom,sudden spurt for the love of our Tri-color and stories around freedom struggle. Many times this question also arised in my mind,why we think of freedom only around specific time in a year,always wanted to do something about it. Also made up my mind to bring up this topic in some or other way but as usual it gots lost some where in other sea of thoughts like happens with any other ordinary person. Today when I got a chance to express my idea of freedom,this is all I could come up with:
*Sipping a hot cup of tea at the comfort of my home is “freedom” for me
*”Freedom” is going to places alone or accompanied irrespective of gender
Freedom” for me is being to able to enjoy time with my family & friends unconditionally
*Everyday having a plate full of food for each meal is “Freedom” for me
*To be able to see sunsets & sunrise is “freedom” for me
*Having the right to put forward my opinion under any situation or circumstance is “freedom” for me
*I have the “freedom” to wear my choice of clothes
*My idea of “freedom” is that kids get to be kids as long as they need
*”Freedom” to me is to choose my career & follow my instincts
*”Freedom” to me is to getting married to same man with whom I planned to
*”Freedom” to me is to enjoy all festivals with equal zest irrespective of the religion that I follow or I am married into
For me,freedom lies in everyday small things that I do & plan to do in future.I am blessed to have taken birth in diverified country like our’s. There are so many people to be thankful to,that we are here enjoying this phase in our lives.
Please do tell me your idea of freedom in the comments. I am already excited to read it.
