“India of my Dreams” – Professor M.S.Rao
“The future belongs to those who believe in their dreams.” - Eleanor Roosevelt
As every individual dreams of his/her own future every citizen dreams of his/her own nation. Similarly, I have dreams of my India. I want India to be one of the finest nations in the world with peace, prosperity and stability. I want India to be a global leader to gel with other nations and collaborate for universal brotherhood and fraternity. Here are some of the challenges we must address to take India to great heights globally.
Presently there is a wide gap between the rich and poor that must be bridged. A study shows that India has more number of billionaires. There is disproportionate distribution of wealth in India. It shows that India is rich but Indians are poor. More people from rural areas are migrating to urban areas for better opportunities. Hence, proper infrastructure needs to be created. Bringing reforms in infrastructure helps immensely to accelerate developmental activities. There is a need to build homes for the homeless. Corruption has become a cancer to Indian society. Hence, there is a need to bring appropriate viable legislations to check corruption.
We are rich in human resources and natural resources. We are unable to exploit our natural resources. A small country like Singapore grew without natural resources. Why cannot India grow despite being blessed with natural resources? Additionally, we have human resources especially more number of young population which is a demographic dividend for India. We must tap this precious young population and channel their energies for nation building. A study shows that there is unemployability problem in India arising out of defective education. The present education system emphasizes on theory, not practical education. It encourages reading, writing and reproducing. It must be addressed earnestly to create skilled workforce for better productivity and performance.
There is an urgent need to revolutionize agriculture. Make industry agrarian oriented, not the other way round. Ensure that all Indians become literate and employed. They must live in peace and prosperity everywhere. It is said that next to God is neighbor. Hence, we must emphasize on good neighborly relations to enable us to focus on development.
We have lots of advantages. For instance, we survived global recession because of our inherent system. India is a nation where people all faiths live together. Diversity is the bedrock of India. Therefore, it is essential to strive for secularism to ensure unity and integrity of India. There must be tolerance and respect for all cultures, castes, communities, religions and regions.
I am proud to say that I belong to the country of Mahatma Gandhi which taught the world by achieving independence through non-violence. I belong to the country of Swami Vivekananda who pioneered Indian spiritualism and bridged the gap between the east and the west. I belong to the nation of Mother Teresa who served the poor and leper and revered as mother of compassion globally. Compassion and tolerance are the essence of Indian values and principles.
To conclude, it is essential to inculcate patriotism and nationalism among Indians apart from imparting attitude and enhancing commitment levels. There must be shift in the mindset of people from being rights-oriented to duty-oriented. We must be proud of being Indians first and Indians last to make India as a super power in the world. Jai Hind!
“We grow by dreams. All big individuals are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day, or in the red fire on a long winter’s evening. Some of us let those great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nourish them through bad days until they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.” – Woodrow Wilson
