In 1947 India became independent from England. This video is a time capsule of the hopes and dreams of 20 year old. It’s like ‘Girls’ except in black and white. ST is so sick and tired for these “twentysomething” do’s and don’ts lists floating the internet – but this one is cool. BTDUBBS ST defriends FB friends that post twentysomething buzzfeed lists – they are lame and it needs to stop.
On another note… Why is it always said that countries ‘received’ independence. Or ‘gained’ independence. How come the wikipedias are never written like this: England realized that they were being mean and oppressive and left everyone alone – attempting to pull back with minimal destruction.
This also applies to social movements. History is currently written as if countries are GIFTED with rights and independence.
