What indeed is a nation, if not its people, their strength and their sentiment of oneness? Indian Nation has often seen many attempts to analyse it - people picking up a fragment to confuse it for a whole or looking at the whole with fragmented eyes. Yet, understanding its soul and wit has been an arduous task. It is as gigantic as the nation itself and as miniscule as each soul living in it. Last few days have seen the Indian Nation’s strength, sentiment and substance being expressed most eloquently. If the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir saw the Government exercising its sovereign power with complete conviction; the huge celebrations and the caustic criticism that followed, demonstrated the liberties enjoyed by individuals in a State avowed to democracy. If the floods saw the undying commitment of men in uniform towards welfare of the people; a little lady’s trembling hands reaching to the feet of her savior made apparent the sheer gratitude that people felt towards the supreme sentiment of velour and sense of duty. If the out pour of tributes on the demise of an eminent leader showed how divides can wither away in appreciation of sheer class of elegant political leadership, the whole-hearted participation of people in national activities - be it flood relief or implementation of schemes - presented the shades of the very soul that makes India. Some seven decades ago, a young nation was born out of dreams of a promising future churned through the wisdom of ancient, glorious past. In all these, we have crossed many thresholds and have emerged as a reckoning force within the comity of nations. We have solved many of our problems, with continued efforts to solve many others and recognition that many others have and will emerge. All this years have seen common people grow as citizens gaining political maturity and wisdom; have seen its political class reckon the true power and potential of democracy; have seen the sentiments of nationhood flow deeper and deeper.
