On MODIfying, Developing and Changing INDIA

There was a country, a country of spirited and adept men, finding itself in the path of recovery from the heavy blows of imperialistic pas...

She is 63....But she doesn't seem like...To be precise she must be some 10,063 but i'm counting her age from 1947..Well ,that's our beloved lady , MOTHER INDIA'S age, who celebrated her birthday(a sort of) recently...
It's because before 1947 ,the country was scattered,we were ruled by different rulers and had different styles of rulers...The rulers promoted their interests like augmenting more wealth and landscapes .She was daunted by foreign invaders and finally suffered great conquest by Britain due to useless and some unfamiliar kings of those days.

So what has happened to her ?...How is she now?..Had things changed after independence?..Did freedom help her to achieve political and economic freedom?

To be candid i must say that she is doing good i mean not too bad...India has reached great heights in just an half-century where its counterparts took 150 or 200 years to attain that status...India is now one of the booming economies along with China and Brazil, which would virtually dictate terms in near future...Eventhough the numbers and GDPs suggest that we are lagging behind,the truth is we are going good...

We have successfully built our own Nuclear-submarine with indigenous technology...A technology which is known only to a select group of 5 countries...I would say this is a remarkable achievement by our scientists in a time where some of the best brains of the country lured by green cards and dollars, are serving for foreign countries (it is said that about 25% of NASA scientists were Indians at a certain point of time...And the software program for Discovery which landed in Mars was written by a Tamilian).. INS-ARIHANT stands as a symbol of our native technological expertise...

We have launched a satellite to moon...Gone are the days where you can mock that the satellites made in ISRO finally would reach its orbit in Bay of Bengal..Now we have conquered moon..Eventhough a star-sensor mal-function had been reported, it has achieved more or less its purpose as per Mr.Madhavan Nair,ISRO chief...Moreover,we are gearing up for CHANDRAAYAN-2's launch in 2011 to study lunar landscape in detail...

The above said points suggest that things have changed and improved...
Unfortunately ,things have not changed from worst to the best but only from worst to the better...Even though the country has made huge breakthroughs, it still is facing critical problems like illiteracy,child labor, poverty,poor infrastructure and above all ,the biggest menace terrorism...What's going wrong?..

Anyone with an average intelligence can say that we could have been in a better position in terms of economy and development by this point of time,had the resources been utilized and administered well..And again i have to point my fingers towards politicians and government servants...

As many as 14 prime minister's have ruled this country, but you can't single out anyone as a great leader except may be one or two ...It doesn't mean all of them were inefficient but some of them lacked clear vision,innovation or grit to push the country to the next level.. A leader who can think out-of the-box.

For instance take education..Do we have a good education system?... Of course not because the basic reason is that our education system produces good students not good innovators,good workers who complies to industry standards but not good leaders who can set industry standards...
Our schools and colleges prepare us to become good employees but not good enterprenuer or a innovator...It is well known that India is a important player in the world software market ...But how many recognized software products or brands do we have?..Yes, we have world class companies like Infosys, Wipro, Tcs, Hcl etc etc which make huge revenues..but these are consultants and solution providers who make softwares for specific companies...Do we have a internationally recognized anti-virus software or a operating system or a web giant?..No..More over many Indians play crucial role in making those recognized products.. But the credit goes to some other..At the end of the day pride matters a lot than money...
