THE DARING TRUTH
The rhetoric expression being conveyed by whole of the superior authorities towards the gigantic , multilingual, pluralistic and secular country of the world that is India . My country rather I would say ours a strong belief of justice , sovereign , fraternity and harmony are the words to be read in preamble but doesn’t exist in real picture that has been created over a period of 69years of independent India . Still the problems on basic amenities is countering the development agenda of this substantial nation. Lots of scheme are implemented not only for the well being of countries citizen but also for conducive growth in the wealth of these political crawlers, those of whom are having an urge of greed towards treasury of government like the ant having urge towards jaggery . Promises made in the piles of portfolio and manifestos launched at the time of something that is denoted and pronounced in our country as election which is a root cause for a country to be democratic . A dream of becoming a developed nation in 2020 is obscure , as unprecedented measures are being taken by the present government in form of stripping a currency unit of its status as legal tender in order to seize all the black money floating in the economy. Statement of cashless and cash free economy are meant to be great ideas on an oral evidence, but truth is somewhat far more distinct from reality. As we considered our self a modern society, a society free from biases over rich and poor differences, regional parity and equal distribution of income, but then also a large chunk of population slept with empty stomach, caught in poverty , illiterate and totally stunt. Above mentioned factors are the constraints that our country face and even now the process of selling dreams that is practise by every party is seems to be endless. A distracting mirage of assurance and commitment in the manifestos is just a political gimmick that languish the roots of this pluralistic country.
In support of these claims that are based on optimal references and statistical coherence, one can say that our country is trounced by the system that prevails and everyone is responsible for it from a layman to a dignitary . These daring truths can be converted into reality only through the decisive measures that a system takes and masses follow. Every incumbent government that comes should provoke the citizens and system to work for the goal achievement as followed in Japanese philosophy (a country nuked of atrocious attack and become developed within no time) . The transformation of a third world country into a developed nation can only be possible as if the agenda of basic obligations like poverty , employment , illiteracy , malnutrition , child labour etc are being tackled first, rather than adopting the policies that are followed by major economies of the world and implement in a country where instability occurs in political , legal and economic environment. All these truths are bitter enough to realise , but the dreams that we project has to be converted into a daring reality. As it is rightly said by our former president Late Dr. APJ ABDUL KALAM “ you have to dream before your dream comes true”. Finally with these objectives in mind we can say to the rest of the WORLD that we are coming.
