~~ Hum chalenge, toh Hindustan chalega ~~

26 June, 2011

How many of us have tried to reflect as to what good have we ever done to our nation? And even if we have, did it really make a difference?

This awareness advertisement by the Times of India (TOI) highlights just how careless each one of us is when it comes to doing something concrete for our country. The tree, fallen on the road, represents India, which has lost its integrity, self-respect, is virtually independent but is still dependent in many ways. While everyone, including the politician, the police, and the “aam-aadmi” see the situation, they try to ignore it because they are too selfishly tied up with themselves.

The child represents the innocence that we have lost. While at school, we are taught to be responsible, to respect our country, to help, to fight against what is wrong. However, as we grow up, we forget all this to think of only “OURSELVES”.

It is time to get that innocence back, to join hands to fight against the wrong; poverty; corruption; politics, et al. It is we, the people of India, who can bring a change. As the video rightly says: “Tum chalo toh Hindustan chale.”

“Have a pride in your existence and your actions. Nothing is ‘big’ enough for you,” portrays the campaign.




Lyrics:

"Falak Pakad Ke Utho Aur Hawa Pakad Ke Chalo
Falak Pakad Ke Utho Aur Hawa Pakad Ke Chalo
Tum Chalo Toh Hindustan Chale
Tum Chalo Toh Hindustan Chale
Tum Chalo Toh Hindustan Chale
Tum Chalo Toh Hindustan Chale
Lagaaon Haath Ke Suraj Subaha Nikala Kare
Hatheliyon Mein Bhare Dhup Aur Ujaala Karen
Ho Lagaaon Haath Ke Suraj Subaha Nikal Na Chale
Hatheliyon Mein Bhare Dhup Aur Ujaala Karen
Ufak Pe Paanv Rakho Aur Chalon Akad Ke Chalon
Ufak Pe Paanv Aur Chalon Akad Ke Chalon
Falak Pakad Ke Utho Aur Hawa Pakad Ke Chalo
Falak Pakad Ke Utho Aur Hawa Pakad Ke Chalo
Tum Chalo Toh Hindustan Chale
Tum Chalo Toh Hindustan Chale
Hindustan Chale"
