Well, there can’t be a better way to feel proud and happy, than cheering for the country which has  got Independence. Yes, even more so, as social media has been instrumental towards expressing the same, with greater gusto too 🙂

As India celebrated its 70th  Independence Day, we have actually covered a long journey since its birth. Although, the journey has never been smooth for long with little potholes on the way, yet as Indians we still feel proud of being a part of such a beautiful country. Isn’t it?

Aren’t our emotions charged the moment we sing National Anthem and how can we miss unfurling the flag even today. Isn’t it?

The kind of craziness amongst our tiny tots is equally perspective of the fact that they have something to cheer and feel proud of this day. Although, they are too young to think about its significance but seeing them holding flags is enough towards making us feel even prouder of our future. Isn’t it?

People of every age and especially youngsters are quite vocal about raising their points as they say to what they feel appropriate. On 15th August, this article is all about how citizens of our country have got social media as the perfect medium to showcase their point of view by equally necessitating the government functionary to work in a transparent way. Hence, this is what as citizens we actually feel proud of as well.

The role of media has been immense as it has been instrumental towards playing a key role in gauging a sense of where the country is heading. The youngsters of a country play an immense role in molding its future and the social media platform has given a great platform for them to be a part of this functioning. Who could have thought the agitation where respected Anna Hazare played a key role in Jantar Mantar will turn out to be such a massive hit? As lakhs of people aired their grievances and vented their anger against the government and promised to support the agitation by making comments on social media sites such as Facebook and twitter. Isn’t it?

Social media is proving to be great ammunition for the citizens where they can discuss with the changing conditions of the country amongst their brethren. Now, the baseless and meaningless comments uttered by some of the politicians like one can get a proper diet in Rs 12 can have a devastating effect to the future of that party as these things which will be properly scrutinized and monitored by the people who are out there to showcase their anger. So what if you live in Kashmir or Kanyakumari, we are all one and that’s exactly what social media has turned out to be a uniting force for every one.

Greater is the platform, the biggest reach it equally ensures. Now, gone are the days when the politicians can get away with the comments. The platform of social media has given the citizens of the country a strong hold about its matters and it equally has the potential of toppling the regime for sure. After all, when we have the right to vote, can’t we participate in the day to-day affairs of our country?

Hats Off to Social Media, the country is going to see a reformation in the coming days where the government is going to work with transparency and any wrong move will surely cost the politicians their coveted seats as well. So, as Indians, we should really feel proud of the fact that social media has united us in the hour when the nation has needed our participation and we have rightly realized our duty which is going to take our country to a corrupt free country in the days to come. We all hope and wish for the same as well. Now the impact of Social Media cannot be controlled in any way. After all, when there is a talk of masses, then it surely has the potential of creating revolution of sorts. Isn’t it?
There could not have been a better day than this to showcase the biggest strength which the people of the country have got in the form of social media. Now, they can surely feel a part of the country by making their opinion on the matters. Isn’t it something to really feel proud of on such an important and auspicious day which has proved to be a new dawn 66 years back?

Jai Hind.
