India is a land of colors and has an enigma associated with her. When people listen to the word India they start to picture something out of this world. They picture colors, Bollywood, Appu from Simpsons, Gandhi and a lot of other things. One of those things about which they picture is the backwardness. They picture the same India as has been shown in Slumdog Millionaire.
People picture cows on roads and litter everywhere. They picture poverty and inhabitable human conditions. I will not put blame on the Hollywood for creating that picture of India because if you go out of your house you would see the roads littered. You would notice that people are sitting on the road begging for their livelihood. It is not something that Hollywood has created but it is a reality. We have holy cows sitting on the road and blocking traffic.
India has a lot of potential and has been reiterated numerous times not just on the national stage but on various international platforms by international personalities. To come out of that Image of backward third world country we need to work hard. We are working hard and have shown improvement but it is not just enough. We got to keep on working on our weak areas. We got to get out of our comfort zone and experiment for the betterment of the nation.
Nation is made of its citizens. When people will starts to stand for their rights and perform their duties that is the time the wheels of growth for a nation starts to churn. If we become serious and start to put in efforts to bring the positive change in the society then there is nothing that can stop our nation from waking to up to a better tomorrow.
Everyone knows what Indians are capable of and how fantastic they are. Time and again India and Indians have proved their mettle on the world stage. To become great we need effort from not just one but from everyone. There was a famous dialogue from the movie “No nation is perfect, we got to make it perfect”. We got to work on that philosophy.
Our nation is great and fantastic. We are example of tolerance and have rich culture. We are leaders in the world of spirituality and make individuals healthy with our Yoga. We are known for smartness all around the world. If we would employ our talent and smartness for building our nation how fantastic we can become.
The road to become a fantastico nation is not easy but it is also not impossible for us to become a great inspiring nation. Take a pledge that you will do your part and would not deter from performing your duties. We will do it for our nation and for ourselves. Let’s make this nation a fantastico nation.
