A few intellectuals may know historical truths and social developments by their study and genuine understanding, but the masses learn only through bitter experience, or, to put it in crude terms, after receiving the danda.
Thus it was that the Indian masses learnt after being befooled and being kicked around for almost 70 years that the 'Independence' of 1947 was no independence and that real independence is independence from po...verty, hunger, unemployment, lack of healthcare and good education, that a real freedom struggle from foreign rule can only be an armed struggle as pointed out by our real freedom fighters like Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekhar Azad, Surya Sen ( Masterda ), Bismil, Ashfaqulla, Rajguru, Khudiram Bose, Rajguru, etc and not the fake 'freedom struggle' led by that hypocrite Gandhi, and that the 'democracy' we got after 1947 was phoney, and was only vote bank politics craftily manipulated by our crooked politicians who took advantage of the low intellectual understanding of the masses and tremendous casteism and communalism still prevailing in society to win elections.
It is only now that the Indian masses through their bitter experience are gradually learning the truth, and are realizing that the solutions to their massive problems lie outside the system, and not within it, that is by a revolution.
To achieve this revolution, the Indian masses will have to learn more, and go through rivers of blood and make tremendous sacrifices, but that is unfortunately how history operates. The vested interests in the present order will not give up their hold, and will not allow allow great changes in the country, but will seek to retain the status quo, by putting up fierce resistance.
But our goal must be clear, and we must be ready for attaining this objective whatever the cost in blood. We have to establish a social and political order in which our people enjoy a high standard of living and decent lives, with employment, healthcare, good education, nutritious food, etc for all, and with no social discrimination against women, dalits, minorities, etc. For this struggle the people will have to use all their creativity, and devise the forms of struggle, as were devised by the people in the great French, Russian and Chinese Revolutions, led by modern minded, brave and self sacrificing leaders. Only then will they get real independence. And they will do it.
Arduous as is the path of the Indian people, their future is bright
