To the free man, the country is the collection of individuals who compose it, not something over and above them. He is proud of a common heritage and loyal to common traditions. But he regards government as a means, an instrumentality, neither a grantor of favors and gifts, nor a master or god to be blindly worshipped and served. - Milton Friedman

Hum Mein hai HERO …. HeroHonda is now Hero Moto Corp..

Yet another great music composition by Oscar award winner A R Rehman. It’s a very inspiring song “Hum mein hai Hero”.

Indeed everyone in the world has a HERO inside. One such so called HERO (For many) was Karl Marx. He lived in an era of great many HEROES , So many writers , scientists , artists lived in the same era as his. This HERO Karl MARX came up with a theory that the society would have only one HERO which would be state and all others will follow what the State will instruct. This theory of Socialism or Communism has killed millions of people worldwide. This HERO rejected the theory of Freedom which provided environment or atmosphere for churning out so many HEROES. He called this theory Capitalism and spread hatred for it. Under his theory, The Soviet Union Collapsed. However, this theory is very much ALIVE.

If his theory was applied to the full potential to every country in the world, he would have been the LAST HERO and we would have never heard of this song as A R Rehman would have only been singing songs in the praise of the state.

To a certain extent, we got rid of Karl Marx’s theory in 1991 through a small doze of Capitalism. With that small doze we got HONDA in India to work with HERO. HONDA WAS NOT ALLLOWED TO WORK INDEPENDENDLY as it is a FOREIGN COMPANY. What rubbish? Hero was making bicycles. It started making motorcycles in collaboration with HONDA. We all enjoy motorcycles, its one of the biggest selling automobile in India.

We need real Capitalism and real freedom to have more and more HEROES. Every human being will turn out to be a HERO in capitalism. The police will only handle villains not HEROES. These days I am amazed at the talent shown to us by so many HEROES in our nation through Capitalist Reality Shows and Capitalist Channels. There are many more waiting to be free, waiting for capitalism to touch them. Capitalism exists naturally with all human beings. Only the state needs to get lost and mind its own business of Order and Justice.

Now Hero and Honda are separating. But HERO is capable enough to work independently. Let’s see How HERO faces the challenge of cutting edge technology in automobile industry. Well that’s not what I am going to talk about here in this blog. I just hope that it was not Govt intervention/LAW/RULE that resulted in this split.

I want to highlight the song “HUM MEIN HAI HERO” , But to get the Hero visible we need to provide him liberty , the freedom of thought , expression as long as the hero does not injure or harm others.  Unlike heroes in movies who can get everything done on their own, in real life our needs are mutually interdependent. We exchange services to survive. For instance, hero of medicine (Doctor) takes the service of a hero of planes (pilot) to travel long distances and pilot takes the services of a doctor to get treated.
