My Dream About INDIA
Everyone in this world dreams. One always makes a plan about his future. So, I also have an India of my dreams.
It would be an India in which, there would be no racism; communalism and regionalism. First of all, I would root out communalism, whatever its shape or form may be. All such tendencies, which fan the forces of separatism and disruption, would be eliminated.
Secondly, I want India to be scientifically advanced, technologically better and agriculturally advanced. I would like to build an India where logic and scientific ideas, blind faith and fanaticism as well as crude emotionalism and coarse sentimentalism shall never rule. I would like to bring India at the apex of scientific and technological progress because modern age is an age of science and information technology. Every country, which wants to prosper and progress, must give due importance to science and information technology otherwise, she cannot create achieve good standards living for her citizens.
The India of my dreams would be an India that is self-sufficient in food. All the barren lands would be cultivated for achieving self-sufficiency in food-grains. Agriculture would be given special attention because agriculture is the backbone of Indian economy. Another Green Revolution would be brought about by launching intensive agricultural programmes and farmers would be asked to use better seeds fertilisers as well as modern tools and implements.
This is the age of industrialisation and in this age, the country is to be taken to the zenith of progress and prosperity.
I would also strengthen India’s, defence. The country would be so strong that no enemy would ever dare cast his covetous eyes on the sacred soil of India. Defence and security of the country would be of paramount importance. For achieving this objective, the country would be equipped with all’ the paraphernalia of modern defence because people worship military power in the present-day world. We have proved during the Kargil War that we are second to none but we would have to work harder for military supremacy.
Elimination of ignorance and illiteracy would be.my next priorities because these are also banes. People would be educated on a mass-scale. Then, more pragmatic the system of democracy could be individual liberty and freedom would be defined and granted in letter and spirit.
Another thing, which I would like to see in India of my dreams, would be the abridgement of the gap between the rich and the poor. National income would be distributed rationally among the all sections of the society. Provision of food, housing and clothing to one and all would be given top priority in the India of my dreams. For achieving and accomplishing this, socialism would be the only remedy which, if practised sincerely, would really usher India into an era of economic equality.
If these measures are taken with utmost sincerity, India would really be counted among the most powerful countries f the world and would also guide those countries that are 11 slaves of big powers. It would be an India that Rabindra Nath Tagore described in his lines :
“Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high, where knowledge is free Where the world has not been broken up into fragments, by narrow domestic walls.
