INDIA OF MY DREAMS
India of my dreams is a country without poverty. I want India at the top in Liberty, Equality and Fraternity. What is country without freedom? What is a nation without equality? What is a land without brotherhood?
India to-day is far from my dreams. The gulf between the rich and the poor is increasing day by day. The rich are becoming richer and the poor are becoming poorer. This is very far from my dreams. I want a country in which nobody is poor. All people should have same type of equality in the distribution of the fruits of our land and labour.
In India to-day some people have all the fruits and so many have only thorns in their lot of life. They are driven from pillar to post. Millions do not get a square meal a day. Millions do not have proper clothes to wear. Millions do not have a proper roof on their heads.
We must all work for some type of equality in the country. We need some type of socialism in which the poor do not starve naked on the roads and can be assured of their minimum wants and needs. Without socialism India can never be said to be a free country.
Economic inequality is the root cause of all injustices. In India of my dreams the gulf between the haves and the have not’s must be bridged. Everyone should have enough to satisfy his needs but none should have more to meet his greed’s. In the India of my dreams people should:
“Think less money;
Use less Machinery;
Depend less upon Government;
Produce fewer Children;
Follow Religion more.”
A number of facilities are being given to the SC/ST and other backward classes by the government for the post 30-40 years but the real benefit is not going to the deserving ones. The rich people who have already utilized these benefits are still utilizing the benefits and many of the poor are not even aware of the schemes. This policy should be renewed so that it is not being misused.
