Well! India tasted the flavour of change 66 year ago when we got our independence. At that time the change was from the British Monarchy. Years passed, we progressed as we believe. Did we really progress? After 66 years of independence still we are finding out what sort of progress we have done. Yes, of course we have progressed in every sector from education, scientific research to defence but on what ground.
Still now the issues that the common man is concern about are the basic needs food, shelter and clothes. If you ask a Panwala, what he understands by the meaning of GDP, he will say it’s something which is not related to him. If you ask a pensioner that how easily he gets his pension every month. He will laugh at you and say “easily! What rubbish you’re talking about”. Even if you see a middle level executive he doesn’t know the government policies and laws which affect him.
This kind of unawareness leads to corruption, corruption at every level because public is unaware of its rights and knowhow of the system. The system is inadequate to make the flow of information to lowest level in a proper manner. Again there are some laws which are in effect from the days of British rule. British gone but the laws are still there. The situation and environment for which those laws were created are not the same today, but still we are coping and compromising with it.
Well we believe that we are largest democracy in the globe. Along with that we have to be the finest and strongest democracy. But how? In the present scenario, the conditions don’t make India the finest or strongest democracy. It needs a change and today the conditions are getting bad day by day and India stands at the juncture of change. There is a wave no not a wave, a tsunami which is just outside and if we don’t change then this tsunami has the potential to change everything. What this means? Nothing, Change is the need of the hour.
But how to change? We are from the land of Mahatma Gandhi; non violence is in our blood. Gandhi told us during our independence struggle that if you want to change the system the first thing you have to do is to change yourself and you will see that everything around you is changed. I heard these Lines in Hindi somewhere & yes tried and felt the change around me “Duniya ko jis rang se dekhoge duniya hame usi rang ki dikhai degi”. It means “ The way you see the world; the world will be like that”. The tendency of manipulating things for their own benefits is the first thing people should understand to change because if this is not change then how hard we try to change the system it will not change because the roots of all the changes lies inside our own consciousness.
We all are saying that “Come let’s Change India.” Are we really ready for the change? Are we ready to change our self? These questions should be asked to our self before changing India because after all we all are part of India. Anything we do affect the way India is seen
Lastly I leave it to you how you think India should Change
And I Rest my case…….
