“What’s the point of us living when India is dying”: Actor Mohanlal blogs after JNU row

Malayalam superstar Mohanlal has written an emotional blog on the ongoing controversy that our Nation faces, While the soldiers are fighting on a border, we Indians very conveniently discuss about the Nationalism. While the media is running debates over the Freedom of speech and Anti-nationalism, they forget the soldiers sacrifice so we can enjoy freedom, not only enemies and terrorists but they also face the toughest weather conditions.

The blog, written in Malayalam and titled as ‘What’s the point of us living when India is dying’, cites the avalanche in Siachen that killed 9 soldiers recently. Mohanlal writes that how he came across a photo of Lance Naik Sudheesh’s four-month-old daughter being shown her father’s dead body, and how it is shameful for citizen to sit in the comforts of one’s home and speak about freedom and nationalism.

“We cover ourselves in thick blankets at the first sign of chill in the weather. We have hot water to brush our teeth and take a bath. It is after utilising these comforts that we go to universities and offices and discuss about our soldiers, abuse them and question them. Our country is the soil we stand on, the sky above our heads, the air we breathe, the water we drink and finally the piece of land that we will become one with as we die,” the actor further wrote.

Stating that he is not keen on commenting on the current situation of the country, the actor urged parents to teach the true meaning of nation and freedom to their children. The actor stated that while it is important to respect freedom, it is also important to respect the price at which it comes.
