Happy Dependence Day, India

The British left us when they had sucked us dry of all they could, but we love to pretend that we "won" independence from them. And since we didn't have to pay for our independence in blood and war, but were given it on a platter, we find it easy to throw it away.

That's why we have enslaved ourselves, externally to the Americans and internally to the politician/industrialist/criminal nexus. We have thrown away our right to celebrate independence.

So, Happy Dependence Day.
