Despite being a force of 1.2 billion, India lacks Indians……. Surprised????....ahhh…. don’t be!!!
It’s very important for the development of a country that its residents should be supportive to the cause of its growth and shoulder one another to bring about a change…..but in India I think something else is going on….still on every 15th Aug and 26th Jan or on any other auspicious day of India……the so called Prime minister or President or any political leader for that matter will shamelessly say that by 2020….by 2015…by 20??…. We will be in the list of developed country. I seriously doubt how things are gonna change when all of us are reluctant to change…..
I respect the Vision 2020 of Dr. Kalam, but I am in serious doubt that will that vision be achieved even by 2050 as for that…like he has mentioned in all his books…the patriotism should be their in each and every individuals blood…. But contrary to that, people here don’t even bother to claim themselves as Indians….. U can find Maharastrians….….Bihari…….Bengali…..Assamese……Rajasthanis…...among other depending on the state you are visiting….but sad to say u wont find a single Indian in this country…..
The media has a very important role to play in any countries development but contrary to that they don’t even bother to address us as Indians… I can recall… during the Anna Hazare’s protest…. Times of India quoted as---”Today the guwahatians gheraoed the PM guest house….blah…blah…blah”…..where does this Guwahatians came from??? Is it a separate country??.... we all are an integral part of India….. and what Anna ji did was for the betterment of India….rather they could have quoted as---“Today the Indians in Guwahati gheraoed…blah..blah..” which could have some sense….and would have been more patriotic….
Needless to mention about the shit leaders ruling various unprivileged states of India….they have actually forgotten the very basic of nationalism….and are beating their own drums in what ever fashion they feel like…..just to quote some…..“Maharastra is for Maharastrains and no other persons from any other state are allowed…..”……..” we won’t share the treasure with the country as the treasure belongs to Kerala”…..and many others….. If the leaders have such a mindset why don’t you divide the country into N number of different countries instead of calling it as a state…start fighting for a separate country rather than for separate state’s…so that we have to make Passport and Visa to visit that particular part of the world…..and will have to have a working Visa if one aspires to work in that particular part of the country…. or better go for dual citizenship as is prevalent in USA….. why to remain under the roof of one country……when you cant abide by any of the constitutionals laws and wont allow the people to use any of their fundamental rights…better to divide…..shed the tag of being Indian…. As I don’t think any such people deserve to be called as an Indian….
I don’t think the problem in India is of corruption…rather its of lack of nationalism….as if we have the patriotic feeling we wont cheat our mother nation and so the menace of corruption will automatically be solved….Be it Anna ji or any other until and unless we have the feeling for the nation in us we won’t find solution to any of our problem……
The problem lies with the power….India being a country of youth….The power lies in the hand of youth and again sorry to say…the youth of the country is totally confused… they get drifted in any direction….as guided by these narrow minded politicians…..
Every thing depends on the way one perceive things….I will definitely say that India Lacs Indians (instead of India lacks Indians) and believe that once we get united we can bring a change….what happened in Ramlila Maidan, Delhi a couple of weeks back was just an example of what change a unified directed force can bring and believe me friends until and unless we change we cant force anyone else to change …until and unless we develop the feeling for the mother nation nothing is going to change….It’s the collective effort that can bring a change and no person in single can bring a drastic change does not matter how hard he may try…. Everything needs support…… and a positive attitude towards the cause will definitely bring the change we dream of, ”India’s name in the list of developed country”.
I am Proud that I am an Indian….how many of you are???
