Pride, honour, bravery, compassion, duty. While words in black and white cannot describe patriotism, these are a few that characterize the spirit of an Indian. This 69th Independence Day, let's celebrate this spirit of each one of us- the spirit that makes us all who we are. It's that time of the year when all we hear is the flutter of the flags and desh bhakti songs. We see tiny tots get dressed as the many heroes, our leaders, the visionaries who saw the dream of a free India. But let's also remember those who made this dream come true, who have been striving to keep this dream a reality, who are every day sacrificing their today for our tomorrow.
Let's remember all those heroes who have lived every day to help us breath fresh and free. Let's remember those moments of protest when we stood together for what was right, what made us feel free.
Let's remember that daughter who hasn't hugged her father in months, that son who hasn't seen the world sitting on top of his father's shoulder. Let's remember that wife who spends years staying separated from the love her of life, who spends each day breathing the fact that she is the second priority for her husband- first being the nation. Let's remember that Mother who with a smile bids adieu to her son with no confirmation of when she will see him next. Let's remember that Father who sees his son not as a stick for his old age but as a wall guarding the nation today. Let's remember each moment of his happiness, joy, togetherness that every true hero sacrifices to give us our many such moments- what we call life.
Let's remember that hero in each one of us with this amazing video from Thums Up, a true tribute that will warm your heart. Spread the joy with #ThumsUpRealHeroes video.
