as we celebrate Independence Day this August 15, it is worth asking ourselves: why is there little sense of pride in the country about what our parents and grandparents managed to achieve against all odds? If anything, why is there a sense of (1) about their potential contributions and sacrifices? My father was in and out of British jails for more than three years, and there were scores of people like him. They were not only fighting for India’s freedom from colonial rule in a political sense, but also fighting hard for the transformation of the country from within — from age-old (2) of the caste system, and from the pressures of collective (3) to create a sense of individual and civic responsibility to create a modern nation. The stories of people like my parents (my father died at the age of 81 in 1993 and my mother completed 100 last September before passing away last December) are not simply moral examples but also (4) and thrilling. But, except for a few details such as the Dandi Salt March or the Quit India Movement and the final Partition of the sub-continent, much of the details about the movement and the involvement of several thousands of people from all parts of the country remain (5) in the minds of most Indians today. Often what we do know is based on the movie Gandhi, made by a Briton, Sir Richard Attenborough. We have a few museums focused on sites or on the major figures , such as Gandhi and Nehru.

Every time I visit the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. and walk through the (7) installations that give the visitor a (8) sense of the trains that the victims were packed in to be sent off to the concentration camps, their shoes piled up in a corner, or read the letters written by the victims and see the films on the liberation of camps such as Buchenwald, I imagine a national Independence Museum of India. I imagine young people taking on the role of freedom fighters, organising neighbourhoods to start morning protest marches, singing the songs of the movement, planning secret message systems to continue the fight as leaders get sent to prison. I imagine a museum, not so much to politicise or idealise national heroes as to serve as a (9) to create a new nationwide conversation about the legacy of our predecessors who gave their lives to make us the independent, democratic nation we are today.
As children and grandchildren of our predecessors, this is what we can leave our children and grandchildren, to take pride in the unique journey of the country, and fulfil the dream of our parents that still remains (10).
