Today, I wrote about India Since Independence. What have we achieved? What more is needed and most importantly What are the blemishes we have faced in the past 7 decades.
Well, one could write a 700-page book about that (ask Bipan Chandra 🙂 ) but I tried to put my feelings in less than 400 words.
Do read and tell what you think…..
On 15 August 1947, Pt. Nehru made a tryst with destiny and with that India encountered its rendezvous with democracy. And since its inception, India has never looked back. It is on the right path and continues making the right decisions despite the hard conditions it has faced in the past.
Our forefathers wanted it to be a welfare state and they made sure that India doesn’t face the hardships it has faced for over 200 years. It was made sure by the constitution tabulated by Babasaheb and other members in the Constituent Assembly.
India has been advancing in almost every field, from literature to science. All of that is favored by the reforms (be it land, economic or others) and policies which are made for the people by the people elected by the people. In the economic field, we have achieved unprecedented success and most of our 5-year plans have been successfully implemented with shining results. We have also achieved success in agriculture and education sector and most significant achievement has been done in defense and space-related programmes with our own indigenous missiles and space vehicles.
With the days of success, India has seen some dark days as well. These include emergency in 1975, the emergence of Naxalite groups and terror attacks which have damaged our country from within. Other than that poverty and unemployment are the menaces which are doing the most harm to the nation.
Despite these problems, India is the fastest growing economy. In the 70th year of independence, it is developing at a faster pace than it ever was. The need of the hour is to emphasize on education and youth. Because these are the one which can help India regain its old glory back. The more reforms come in the field of education, the faster India will progress not in one or two sectors but all round dream of development will be realized.
To conclude, I must write that it the result of all the pains and hardships of our forefathers who fought for our freedom, all the leaders who lead us here with the reforms, the decision-making ability of our bureaucrats and the power given to judiciary which is leading India towards betterment and development at a rate faster than any other once-colonialized country in the world.
