KALKI ON FREEDOM

Today is a bittersweet day for humanity... while one country celebrates its independence, another has temporarily lost it.

Let me ask you all a question... are any of us truly free?

Freedom.

 

 

On the Eve of the Indian Independence Day in 1947, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru addressed a crowd where nestled deep within his speech about India's tryst with destiny, he uttered five incredible words:

Freedom and power bring responsibility.

 

Just because we each appear to be freely acting human beings, we must make sure that in enacting our own freedom we respect the freedom of others, as long as and until neither of our freedoms brings harm to others.

 

Did you catch all that?

Read it again if you didn't.

And if you did read it again, were you doing it freely?
