The midnight hour has already been struck about 2 hours ago in India. And im writing about the very people we snatched our freedoms from..
Sometimes it is ironical how bloody history can be and how little we know about the past, and we speculate about the future... how old people would always muse about "in our days... this or that would have never happened" and when you look back, the rebels existed, as did the nerds, as did failures and the odd winner. they have all moved on... and so does life.
The magic of history is thus, its like a fairy tale, something that we pretend that can never happen to us. how different was Lady Jane Grey from our very own sunitas and anitas being sacrificed for the greater good for the society to move ahead.
