than the line of duty. If the Prime Minister had taken oath for the first time as the ‘Pradhan Sevak’ of the country, this road would have been named ‘Seva-Path’. From this it would seem that in India the service of ‘sevak’ is going on, not the rule of ‘king’.
While inaugurating ‘Central Vista’, Prime Minister Narendra Modi asserted that he is working to end the slavery mentality of the country. There is no doubt that replacing George V with a magnificent statue of Subhash Babu is a very commendable step and changing the map of the entire ‘India Gate’ area is also a big task. Construction of new buildings in this area will make the government offices run smoothly and new roads will also make it more convenient for the people. Narendra Modi will be remembered for many generations to come for this reform. But to what extent is it right to call the Rajpath ‘Dootripath’ to the war against mental slavery? The first thing is that the word Rajpath is from Hindi.
Second, it is easier than the path of duty. If the Prime Minister had taken oath for the first time as the ‘Pradhan Sevak’ of the country, this road would have been named ‘Seva-Path’. From this it would seem that in India the service of ‘sevak’ is going on, not the rule of ‘king’. The Prime Minister can still name it ‘Seva Path’ if he wants, but the bigger and fundamental question is that by renaming some roads, islands and cities and erecting statues of national heroes, you have come from the British era. Can you get rid of the slave mentality? This action is similar to gimmicks. With a tiara on your head and a bow and arrow in hand, you assume the posture of Rama, but then as soon as you step off the stage, you start puffing on cigarettes and ganja.

This doesn’t mean the jokes are pointless. They also benefit, but the government celebrating 75 years of India’s independence does not know that slavery runs through its veins. Even now our leaders are servants of bureaucrats. In whose language do all the laws of the country, all the higher education and research of the country and all the justice of the country take place? Does it happen in Indian languages? It is in your old master’s language, English. Most of the schemes, campaigns and national welfare works carried out in the name of the Prime Minister are also named in the tongue of our old Guru. Because the job of our leaders is just to speak the tongue. The real mind is run by bureaucrats. Our bureaucrats and intellectuals are cast in the mold of Macaulay and Curzon. Until Gandhi, Lohia or Deendayal who broke the barrier are born in India, this slavery mentality will continue to prevail in India.
