Vision and mission in life
Tipu Sultan was a fascinating figure of 18th century, who offered his blood to write the
history of free India. He had a vision and a mission in life. The
vision was to make his people enlightened and prosperous, and mission was to liberate his
land from the yoke of the colonials. His short but stormy rule is significant because of
his view that only that life was worth living which would unfold the drama of human
freedom, not only political freedom, but also social freedom, economic freedom, cultural
freedom, and freedom from want, hunger, apathy, ignorance and superstition.
His definition of State itself was organized energy for freedom.
