A thousand revolts lead to a revolution.

"A thousand revolts lead to a revolution". The number thousand here is just a random number it can be anything from a a thousand to a million acts of revolt which finally aid to bring in a revolution. Mark the word aid, because it takes much more than revolts to bring in a true revolution. For eg: We achieved Independence from the British in 1947, but it took another 50 years for the people to get released from centuries of oppression based on class and caste. This was the true independence that we were fighting for, the independence from the British was more of a symbolic and it was one of the first form of independence which later triggered a chain, resulting in the true one which we are relishing today. I am not saying here that we have achieved total freedom from the vices of oppression based on class, caste and religion. But its just that the things have changed too much, for better, in the last 20 years or so for the lowest of caste in the Indian hierarchy. The change that they have seen in a few decades is the one which their forefathers had dreamt for centuries or approx 5000 years.

Yesterday night while watching the movie, Hazaron Khwahishein Aisi, I just re - lived the story of one such revolt. It wasn't the first time I was watching the movie, I have seen it couple of times and it certainly figures on my favorite list. Its about movie making in the true sense, it symbolizes the thousands of unknown revolts in the remotest parts of our huge country, by some unknown faces. The revolts whose fruit of revolution we relish in our lives, oblivious of the fact that they exist. Not many really care about history in today's world, there are hardly any youth who are aware of the Naxalbari Andolan or the emergency and the fight against it, Neither are these stories told on popular stages often. I am pretty sure these stories would be lost sooner or later considering our history in preserving our heritage, might be that's their fate after all individually they were failures.
