Development of new India

February 23, 2006

Here’s the first part of speech i promised in my last post

Today, on this auspicious occasion I am honored to deliver speech and discuss with you a very burning issue: “Development of new India”

Incidentally Government of India has also started a program “Bharat Nirman”(check out the website) and numerous other programs are running at city, state or national level by various NGOs with aim to take our country from developing to developed nation. Our President is also a technology and growth evangelist.

So when I was given this topic, I asked myself a question, why at all do we need to develop New India? Answer to this question led me to another question:

Does India as a country got the kind of veneration, and that too in all walks of life which it rightly deserve?

I am sorry to say that no matter how patriotic you are, you will not get an affirmative answer to this question.

Our great philosophers, thinkers, saints and scholars showed us the right path to success, which could have made us a great nation; unfortunately we never cared to walk on it. Today, we are not even half way; forget about the super power.

I don’t want to be a cynic, but how as a nation can we call us No. one when more than 35% Indians are still illiterate, 40% still live below poverty line? There are numerous other issues which need our imperative attention.

But then, coming up with figures doesn’t solve the problem. We need a concrete solution, which asks for an action plan. I strongly believe that only solution to all our problems is awakening and taking up the cause by our industrious and Karma Yogi Brothers and sisters.

We have taken birth as a human being but do we behave like one?

Swami jee has rightly said that you just try to be a good human being and rest will be taken care of.

Tomorrow: Answer to this question …
