Indian Dream

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 3; the third edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton.


The topic for Blog-a-ton 3 is 'Indian dream'. This post made my rusted brain to work a lot and refer a lot. Wow, by writing this article, i learnt a lot about our economy and India at present. How we were once and how we are now? Vast difference. Come on, get into the article and tell me how is it.

Let me start this article by telling some known-unknown facts about India. This inclusion tells the world how great we Indians are.

"We owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made."

- Albert Einstein

INDIA - AS A COUNTRY:

These India facts were recently published in one of the German Magazines which deals with World History

  • The World's first university was established in Takshasila in 700 BC. More than 10,500 students1 from all over the world studied more than 60 subjects.
  • The University of Nalanda built in the 4th century CE was one of the greatest achievements of ancient India in the field of education.
  • Sanskrit is the mother of all the European languages. Sanskrit is the most suitable language for computer software - a report in Forbes magazine, July 1987.
  • Ayurveda is the earliest school of medicine known to humans. Charaka, the father of medicine consolidated Ayurveda 2500 years ago. Today Ayurveda is fast regaining its rightful place in our civilization.
  • Although modern images of India often show poverty and lack of development. India was the richest country on earth until the time of British in the early 17th Century. Christopher Columbus was attracted by her wealth.
  • The art of Navigation was born in the river Sindh 6000 years ago. The very word Navigation is derived from the Sanskrit word NAV GATIH. The word navy is also derived from Sanskrit 'Nou'
  • Bhaskaracharya calculated the time taken by the earth to orbit the sun hundreds of years before the astronomer Smart. Time taken by earth to orbit the sun: (5th century) 365.258756484 days.
  • The value of "pi" was first calculated by Budhayana. He explained the concept of what is known as the Pythagorean Theorem. He discovered this in the 6th century long before the European mathematicians.
  • Algebra, trigonometry and calculus came from India.
  • According to the Gemological Institute of America, up until 1896, India was the only source for diamonds to the world.
  • USA based IEEE has proved what has been a century old suspicion in the world scientific community that the pioneer of wireless communication was Professor Jagdeesh Bose and not Marconi.
  • Chess (Shataranja or AshtaPada) was invented in India.
  • The place value system, the decimal system was developed in India in 100 BC.

Amazing isn't it? Proud to be an Indian. This topic, "Indian Dream" can be presumed and interpreted in many ways and the beauty lies in the way we interpret it. I am going to write this article in two perspectives (Of course its purely my opinion). They are :

  • India's dream
  • Dream of an Indian-Me

DREAM OF AN INDIAN - ME:

I have a dream, India, as a country in my dreams.

  • It is true that one person can not solve all the big problems–say removing corruption from society or to educate every child or to fix all broken roads, but One person can still do lot of Small things and if each of this ONE PERSON does these SMALL THINGS, the SUM-TOTAL will be very LARGE.
  • There, in ancient India existed great universities like Takshasila and Nalanda where students not only from India but also from far-off countries came to study diverse subjects. But what is the present scenario? All of them are willing to carry their studies abroad. The reason? The Standards of Indian universities diminished (To some/many extent). And, the attraction of getting a degree from a foreign university tops them all. We acquire and possess a vast knowledge. But do we apply all our knowledge in the right area and for the right country?
  • Brain drain is another terminology going rounds. If everyone one of us cite the reason : India doesn't have the opportunity for the field I excel in, what will happen to our country's future? Instead why don't we create opportunity for ourselves in our country, thereby preventing and motivating the future generations to serve for the country.
  • I want to live in a country free from terrorism and a secure place to live in with people proud of the country’s leadership. Terrorism doesn't mea2n the invasion of foreign elements inside our country. Within state atrocities and the lack of a secured life within house disproves my wish. When a take a daily, I see numerous articles about murders and Child Molestation. Murder for gain, sexual abuses, Female infanticide still prevail in our country. I want a terror free nation, like Gandhi ji wished, a nation where girls can feel secured and walk alone in nights wearing precious ornaments. Long way to go na?!
  • Clean society is what I want. Am I sounding selfish here? No am not. One of my neighbor came from US of A two weeks back and was telling my dad how clean the road was. When their country can be so clean, why can't ours be? We can roam around freely without twitching our nose for the stinking garbage's. I can witness the drainage water seeping in slum. Atleast we can do our duty properly, by not throwing garbage's in the road.
  • Corruption is again a big term which is bringing a bad name for our country among all other nations, yeah we are Number one in corruption. Money speaks everywhere. These days, people are running out of time and when they want to get a thing done soon (Starting from Govt. organizations to private companies), we pay money which is called corruption on a bigger note. Who are responsible for this? We ourselves are the cause and solution for this problem.
  • Finally, for me the mother of all dreams is a motherland where political liberty of each of its citizens will be valued most and where protest will be considered legitimate.

INDIA'S DREAM

India is the worlds largest democratic country. Is Indian democracy an experiment in governance or a huge muddle? Time has the answer. How our Indians today form a sea of humanity which has been flowing for ages, different in many ways yet having a common thread, a common feeling - INDIAN. India even with its great problems despite difficulties yet survives its own trials and pains. People here are enjoying peace, freedom which can't be imagined by people in other countries.

Economic i_am_the_indian_dream_tshirt-p235821781226946548q0vu_400growth for India is basically linked to societal transformation in the knowledge products and service sector. Of course this in turn fortifies agriculture and manufacturing sector through innovation and value addition. We have to move towards information and knowledge society involving explicit knowledge. Information and communication technology have to be vastly deployed in our transmutation strategy along with State-of-the-art technologies like Biotechnology, Nano-technology.

Our Former President, Kalam told "Instead of the person from the rural areas going to urban towns in search of jobs in manufacturing and services sectors, PURA ( Providing Urban Amenities in Rural Areas) facilitates creation of employment in the rural areas itself. PURA achieves this by providing physical, electronic and knowledge connectivity to a cluster of villages thereby leading to their economic connectivity and prosperity. I would suggest the ICT companies to spread the establishment of new Unit in Tier-2 and Tier-3 cities and PURA complexes.". That's one of the best proposal, which can take our country to new heights by 2020 as he envisioned.

By the end of this century, there would be novel trend towards convergence of human thinking with the world of machine intelligence that we, the human species initially created. When there would no clea30min_destin_moon_248r distinction between human and computers, how would the molecular biologists help us to retain the supremacy of man over machine? Weird thinking, but it may happen in the near future. Our technology and our Mission to moon, Chandrayan (Though it failed), made the world to turn their heads and see us. NASA praised ISRO for its invention and Chandrayan's discovery in moon.

Information Technology and Communication together formed ICT (Information and Communication Technology). Then Information Technology merged with Bio-Technology and led to the formation of Bio-Informatics. Now Nano-Technology is knocking the doors of science. It is the field for future that will replace microelectronics with tremendous application potential in the areas of medicine, electronics and material science. When Nano technology and ICT meet, integrated silicon electronics, will be devised born. This may lead to material convergence. With material convergence and biotechnology linked, a new science called Intelligent Bioscience will be born which would lead to a disease free and more intelligent human home ground. Merging bio-Nano-info technologies can lead to the growth of Nano robots. Nano robots when they are injected into a patient, it will diagnose and deliver the treatment solely in the affected area and then the Nano-robot gets digested as a DNA based product. I read all these in a college journal sometimes back. Wrote it with the help of my notes.

Dream, dream, dream. Dream transforms into thoughts. Thoughts result into action. It means only if you have a dream thoughts will come. If thoughts are there, you will do the action. So you have to start a goal vision in your life.

-Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam

If it has some errors, am sorry :-(. This is wholly my perception as a single Indian. So Kindly excuse.

Wow! So much research went into it and what a lovely presentation of views. I'll go back and read it again. I liked it!

Shruti said...

@Guria
""lovely presentation of views""
Thank you!

Read it and tell me!! Am keeping my fingers crossed.

Kaka said...

cool!!!!!!i loved the one where u highlighted the contributions made by india and indians.....nice write....i totally agree with u where u said if everyone along with caring for himself does a bit for his country can turn our country into a better one...like u can make sure he and his family dont litter....:)

Rajalakshmi Umapathy said...

Shruthi, That was good. I liked the thing you told about child molestation which is so bad. Corruption-free, Clean and Brilliant India- thats what we all want..You have done your work with that Shruthi Enthusiasm as I like to call it..
Kalakuringa po

Good one.. all the best

Shruti said...

@Kaka
Yes when every individual does his job perfectly, our country will be leading in every field!

Thank you and welcome back.

Shruti said...

@Raji
Hi sweety :)
""Shruthi Enthusiasm""
A new title for me eh? hehhehe.. Glad that you liked it Raji :)

All the best to you too!

Guria said...

I read and I re-read. I liked everything you said. The optimism, the facts and the faith. True Dreams. do you realise you have done a 'Past, Present and Future'...
Great going girl! You rock!
\m/

Love, G.

Shruti said...

@Guria
""I liked everything you said""
That's a true compliment for me.. I am encouraged everytime i see your comment!

Yes i analysed past,present and future.

Thanks again!

Mustaf said...

What a thorough research you have done!! Have read a few posts on the same topic today, but this is quite different.

And that analysis of India's dream was such a complex analysis (not the presentation but the topic itself), don't know how you pulled it through. And if we look at our neighbour countries we can realize how dangerous a problem is like brain-drain.Total no of Indian staying abroad might outdo the number coming from those countries, but percentage wise I think they are much higher.Poeple leaving the country and no development in the country makes the country itself going worse to worst. I hope we realize this before it is too late:(

BTW, one suggestion though without being asked for it. Not doubting any of the facts you have put it, but in such cases it is always a good idea to provide those references, it adds much weightage.And this is applicable in case of any professional write-ups,too.

Simply superb :)

Daisy Blue said...

A well researched post I must say !

Vipul Grover said...

A well researchd post Shruti.. Cvring diffrnt perspectives added 2 it:)
Mentioning PURA and calling for bridging the Urban-Rural divide was a nice thought.

all the best

Shruti said...

@Mustaf

That's the state of Indians at present. Pitiable state.
""this was printed in a GErman magzine""

The way of talked about your dreams as an Indian, and used 'I', it endeared me more to the post. Everybody has written 'they'! It is our responsibility too. 'We' is right. :)

Love, G.

Shruti said...

Girlie :)
You are such a sweety! I never know my post was worth a re-read!

kanaguonline said...

interesting and elaborative post Shruti... :) I liked it for the way you have presented it and the amount of work you have put behind this one...

/*Clean society is what I want. Am I sounding selfish here? No am not. One of my neighbor came from US of A two weeks back and was telling my dad how clean the road was. When their country can be so clean, why can't ours be?*/

have you neighbour about how much guilt he will feel for throwing a paper or spitting on our roads compared to American roads.. we have a long way to go in cleanliness and public hygiene..

as far as other things I accept them... we have the potential.. and hope it's fully utilised...

MADHU RAO | (INDImag.COM) said...

@Shruthi,
Thanks for stopping by and the encouraging comments . Much appreciated.

A very detailed post. Loved it.

The best part for me was " India facts were recently published in one of the German Magazines ". I had 4-5 slides on the same in my video but had to chop it as YouTube balked at my 12 minute video ; had to get it below 10. I'm really happy that you have used it -- there are so many things we should be proud of.

Again, Great post...

Shruti said...

@Madhu
hi :)
""there are so many things we should be proud of""

Thanks a lot!

☥ ѕωαмι ηανєєη said...

Facts that make India gr8, Dreams of an Indian n then India's dream ... Magnificent approach !

vEnKy said...

@ shruthi

the facts you published in India- as a country that is a forward message that forward even had that Albert Einstein quote. I got that forward few days before Independence day.

It wasn't bad shruti, it is just that i expected more from i thought it would have a 55 fiction.

pawan said...

Shruti,
A lot of this post went into detail and touched many points. Though superficial, I liked the post for its enriching content. For once I became enlightened. Nice Post.

Cheers!

Singh Amit said...

Very Intelligent post... Shruti :)
All things u have mentioned prove how developed we were in terms of scientific and societal areas.
Brain-drain, migration of people from rural places to cities are really matter of great concern. I earnestly feel...Scientific development has a pivotal role in the development of nation....So the slogan..Jai jawan..Jai Kisaan..Jai Vigyan seems quite significant to acheive the Indian dream.

Cheers!!

BK Chowla said...

Shruthi,you have put together the best and the ideal picture.I only wish at a part of it happens,we will be different people.

soin said...

romba time yeduthu formala yezhuthureekeenga..but the human convergence can never happen..free

Shruti said...

@Naveen
""Magnificent approach""
Thank you so much!

Shruti said...

@Venky
May be! I got them from a a website having German quotes and points from a leading magazine!

55Fiction? I thought about it! But i wanted to write this article by analyzing past,present and future!
So i couldn write a 55F!
Sorry for disappointing u da!

Shruti said...

@Pawan
Hi :)
""I liked the post for its enriching content""
Thank you so much for your wishes!
All the best!

Shruti said...

@Amit
Hey thank you! Am getting these words from a scientist!
Wow!!

""Scientific development has a pivotal role in the development of nation""
Very true!

Thanks :)

Shruti said...

@Chowla ji
If a part of this, my dream happens, we will rule the world with advanced solutions for every field!

lostworld said...

Shruti.. Kudos babe !!!

That was an encyclopedia of a post.
I loved all the tit-bits & info.

Good luck for Blog-a-ton 3. Keep going.

Shruti said...

@Soin
Why human convergence can never happen?! Have you read a tamil sci-fci novel by Sujatha? Its titled "Pesum Bommaigal"! It proves everything! With the advancement of technology we are sure to reach the new horizons!

Shruti said...

Harsha Chittar said...

Hi Shruthi
I read half of it morning, i wanted to comment only after reading the whole post, which i just finished now, so here goes

India as a Country
Made me proud, felt really good reading that part.

Dream of an Indian
All of us want to live in that perfect country, clean from all the dirt.
We keep forgetting that WE are INDIA.
We keep forgetting WE are the citizens living with dirt around us.
The sad part is we have all the knowledge, we know what is wrong, yet we sit with your legs stretched.
I dream of the day, where people throw garbage in the dust bin, and not in front of their neighbor's gate.
I dream of the day, where your America returned neighbor picks a broom and starts taking the initiative, than sit complaining.

India's Dream
Wake up my friend. Throw that blanket away, the world is laughing at you. Run after your dreams, show the world your dream, your country's dream

- Harsha

Harsha Chittar said...

To sum it up
Blog well written.
Thank you for making me feel proud as an Indian.
Thank you for showing there is a bright future.

Hi Shruti,

I do appreciate your efforts for gathering such information and you did really fabricated the current situation. This article could have achieved completeness had it been bit more comprehensive. May be because you have command on technological domains, the other domains like Agriculture(Farmers suicides), Societal Inequalities(Victims of development, migration), widening gap between rich and poor, Environmental degradation etc got bit less weight-age in the article.
Just think once.
:) :) :)

@Mahesh
yes you are correct. I wanted to write to the topic. But i diversified the topic and added those technicalities!
Will keep in mind about your suggestions
