Every one whether in the individual capacity or in collective capacity or a country itself, every entity needs a vision statement, which motivates to get into a greater effort to put the things into one direction? In the context of individual, a vision statement helps in putting various endeavors in one direction to achieve goal or accomplish vision. In the context of a country, it helps in encompassing the role and responsibility of different agents in the economy, such as Central, State and local government, the private corporate sector, the small and tiny sector, people’s organizations etc. One has to identify the potential areas of strength building and indentify bottlenecks to take corrective measures in a focused manner. It is clear, therefore, that to meet the objectives, a vision statement has to operate several levels of generality and specificity. My plain vision statement of INDIA 2020- shall be “A fearless, strong, self reliant all rounder India”. I do compare India with a cricket player having all skills of the game to remain a match winner. WHERE THE MIND WOULD BE WITHOUT FEAR
The following poem by the great poet Rabindranath Tagore adumbrates my insight of INDIA in 2020. Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high.
Where the knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where the words come out from the depth of truth
Where the tireless striving stretches its arms towards the perfection Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by Thee
Into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country
After the decades of sufferings and humiliation in the hands of terrorism, I see people of India would be living a fearless and a peaceful life by the year 2020. By that time Indo Pakistan issues will get settled and they will not look at each other as enemies. If not all, an average Indian would cherish and live a successful quality life. People of India would feel safe and secure in their prosperous motherland physically, economically and from any kind of discrimination. India would grow secular with the time and education spreading in streets and corners of the country. No social discrimination and no reservation shall be the talk of era around 2020. India would develop in science and technology and reliance on import of technology would reduce minimal. As a result India would be able to build up year after year its military power to protect its sovereignty. Once the military power is displayed to the world, it would be free of any external threats. Within the homeland, the law enforcing agencies like police and allied forces shall adopt the latest gadgets to attack offenders and hence the crime will reduce and people would feel secure and safe with presence of strong protectors. The stricter domestic laws and its enforcement would ensure reduced crime rate / criminal acts in the society. AND THE HEAD WOULD BE HELD HIGH
The effulgent India would be in the hands of youth who seek pride and honor to serve their motherland. Citizens from any profession would be ready to take individual initiatives to expunge any negativities persisting in the society. They would feel happy in giving back something to their nation. The Brain Drain would reduce to a great extent as they will find India a better place to establish themselves. When Indian youth would take on the politics, the corruption would be in dictionary not in practice. WHERE THE KNOWLEDGE WOULD PROFUSE
Government will create high standard institutes / schools / colleges, a large number of IITs and research establishments that would be able to provide high quality education. The admission to high quality institutes will not be as competitive as it is today. There will be a remarkable change in the education system. A free flow of knowledge is the base of a free and prosperous...
