When Mr. Gandhi was fighting for freedom, he did not only mean to get freedom from the shackles of British political strangulation. He also meant freedom from the things, which have been corroding the basic layer of the country, and that was untouchability.
His fight for the freedom was not for the country, which would see a human being as per his class. He wanted freedom for one and all, so that every citizen of India could breathe freely in his country and without any fear.
However, what happened post independence was completely opposite to the very thoughts of Gandhi. Upper caste people have created their own society where there was no place for people belonging to lower class.
Time passed by, and India ushered into an era, where it was counted as one of the powerful countries across the globe. One thing remained the same, which was prevalent at the time of Gandhi as well and that was untouchability.
From a common man to man in power, they dream to see India becoming a super power, but experts question only one thing. The question is whether such thing is possible in the country, where society is so fractured. It is a high time now that every Indian should realize that one has to work together to chase that dream and it can be only done by united efforts.
