Some say freedom is a gift placed in our hands by our forefathers.
Some say freedom is a human right that none should be denied.
Some say freedom is a privilege that can and will be seized if taken for granted.
Some say freedom is the key that opens doors otherwise meant to imprison.
Some say freedom is power to do, to be, to say, and to accomplish what the oppressed cannot.
Some say freedom is a responsibility - a weight to be carried and shared by those willing to protect it.
Perhaps freedom is all these things.
But freedom perhaps is a treasure - a gem so rare and precious that the fiercest battles rage over it.
Without freedom I am a slave in shackles on a ship lost at sea.
But with freedom - I am a captain; I am a pirate; I am an admiral; I am a scout; I am the eagle souring overhead; I am the North Star guiding a crew; I am the ship itself; I am whatever I choose to be….

Like Richelle, even we at Films & TV World feel that Independence is a celebration of the soul. Just as Jonathan Lockwood Huie says: “Independence of nation begins with independence of self” we too at Films & TV World believe that we are all equal citizens of one country. We live in a dynamic country with the capacity for adaptation that gives us confidence that we can meet the historic challenges. And we can do that by embracing other cultures, not by acting superior to them. This Independence day, let’s stop being judgmental about others, stop ethnicity and racism. Let us be one Happy Nation.
Happy Independence Day! Jai Hind!!
