At the Stroke of Midnight

"At the stroke of midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will wake to life and freedom...", excerpts from Tryst with Destinity, speech delivered by Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India. 1947.

"If by the edge of the sword or fear of atom bomb, if someone tries to make our country bow, this country of ours is not going to bend or break..." Lal Bahadur Shastri, the third Prime Minister of India, 1965.

"...It would not have happened if the World Community had woken up to the fact (East Pakistan Massacre) when we first drew their attention", Mrs. Indira Gandhi, the first woman Prime Minister of India, 1971.

"...India have never bowed infront of terrorism or terrorist, and She will never bow..." Mr. Narendra Modi, the present Prime Minister of India, 2016.

It started at Midnight and the thing have metamorphosed to another life and recognition in an around that hour when the Indian Army conducts operations with precision into enemy territory. The term enemy comes with adversary conditions developed by the misalignment of words and stare at each other. India just replied to such a stare, being conducted physically at Uri, earlier this week, in September 2016. And the reply was just and clinical; may be that's why it's called "Surgical Operation".

Sitting outside my homeland, it gives makes me browse only through the day to day event where the border news comes flashing by. In the 21st Century, when India is roaming around Mars, some people are happy to shoot bullets, shell and off hand missiles to the skies. For and against people survive everywhere, but it gives me a food of thought to the people who involuntarily gets tagged, hit and killed. But, many peace agreements have fallen head over heels. Its time to play it intelligently and I guess, the present Indian Government has not yet disappointed me.

India Shining or Good Days, let my Motherland bask in the glory of the sunshine and prosperity and let all the Citizen of the World live with happiness. A day when I write this small article, is the day we start our celebrations of life.

Happy Mahalaya.
