The Indian Dream

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 3; the third edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton.

              To start with, India is one of the most populated countries in the world . Any country’s most valuable resource would be  Human Resource and India has enough of it. The Indian Dream in my opinion stands for the kind of future a citizen of India would aspire for( dream for rather) .And with the kind of potential India has keeping in mind the resources, one could say a great future holds for India. Any citizen would dream that his / her country should the best in every manner. Unfortunately, the picture is not as rosy as it appears to be. In fact, we have a long way to go to reach a position that would mean justifying our country’s potential. On October 1st, China celebrated 60th National’s Republic day and India would celebrate its 60th republic day on Jan 26th, 2010. But if we have to compare the two countries on various issues, China stands tall. We have enough resources as China has had over this years. So, we need to make some changes in our governance and other things to make a mark as a super power globally.

My view of Indian Dream :  India , as a country should be self sufficient in food, power, security,Money and what not, as a citizen I feel my country should be the best in everything. The poverty and unemployment indices should reach minimum. And it would be great if there would be equal opportunity provided to everyone unlike the present situation, where reservations based on caste have a role to play. And I would like to see my country to be devoid of all social ills, ignorance and my ultimate dream is to see a “HAPPY INDIA “ . I really feel India should  be an embodiment of happiness, with the rich cultural heritage our ancestors have left us. I am afraid, with the increasing globalization, the Gen X have no clue of our culture and heritage.  The bottom line is that India should attain a status that makes it an icon . So , ICONIC INDIA and HAPPY INDIA  is my Indian Dream.

What it takes to make this dream a reality :   Keeping in view, the present situation, its takes a lot to achieve even a part of what my dream is. I have a few suggestions and if they are implemented in the right spirit, the dream could be a reality .

  1. Modifications in our governing system : Democracy , undoubtedly is one of the best systems of governance in this world . Unfortunately, a lot is being done in the name of Democracy . There has to be  transparency and accountability . Transparency of organized and allocated funds for public welfare  could help a lot of funds from being diverted to private interests. Accountability of people in power to their work is a minimum pre requisite of our netas. Unfortunately, where does this accountability come, when the netas are far from responsible.This should change and the netas should be answerable to the public.
  2. Role of Media : Media should be the interface between the public and the government. Media should establish news, not make news. Media should keep a vigilant eye on netas, not on film stars and cricketers.
  3. Utilization of resources : Efficient utilization of available resources would help in sustaining national interest.
  4. Attitude of citizens: Its high time citizens of our country realize that they should choose their leaders carefully and should not be lured to money and other forms of bait to elect their leader.
  5. Every citizen’s duty : Every citizen should try to serve the the society in the best way possible as a little regular progress will yield big results.

           This is my Indian Dream and I hope we the people , will make it a reality .

           I admire your patience in reading what could be called as an academic essay or the Dumbest blog.

  7. I just thought about a cartoon strip that was published in connection with Blog-a-ton 3 as I was reading your post. It was about how we don’t dream for our country and how we dream only for us. Happy to see you talked about a dream for the country.

    1. A person dreaming for him.. is just dreaming for his country indirectly.. I mean his self interest will lead to national interest//

  8. That is a nice short post of a true Indian citizen! I agree with you totally.We must be more responsible and try to do our duties.
