Are we independent?

How can we say when we are independent when we have these many people under poverty line? What really independence means?

1) US entire population in 2010: 308 Millions. Source

2) Number of people, in India, who are below poverty line in 2010: 300 Millions. Source. That is almost equal to entire US population.

3) Number of people, in India, who are unemployed approximately in 2010: 300 Millions. That is too almost equal to entire US population.

How would I celebrate independence day when so many people are hungry in my country?

I feel bad when I hear corruption in millions. How in the world you can take bribe or earn in corrupt way when your fellow countrymen is sleeping hungry?  And why they don’t stop even after pocketing millions? How much money you need in your life?

I love India but hate corruption. I love independence but hate poverty.
