India celebrated its 68th Independence Day on 15th August. What has changed in India since the British Raj? India is still the country that has more temples than toilets, a country where VIP’s are treated like GOD; Littering in public places is a very common site… So what exactly has changed since 15th August 1947? If you ask me NOTHING HAS CHANGED!
No doubt, we can celebrate a superficial sense of freedom, independence and change this Independence Day, but the fact remains that change will always come from within.
This thoughtful short film produced by famous Telugu actor Allu Arjun is probably the best thing you will watch today.
Here’s the English transcript of the Telugu lines spoken at the end of the video:
Performing our duties is also patriotism. Change begins with us.
“Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step”.-
Martin Luther King, Jr.
I Am That Change!
