Our former president DR. A.P.J Abdul Kalam once remarked “A NATION DIES WITHOUT VISION”.
Vision is the first and foremost step in the path of success. It provides us with the inspiration and motivation to achieve our goals. So my vision for India by 2047 is ‘India as a global superpower and a self-reliant nation.’
To make India a self-reliant nation, I have identified education as a key priority area for action. Education is the beginning point of a well-developed society. Investing in the knowledge of the people makes them self-reliant and their country too.
The most powerful thing in the world is knowledge because it can create and destroy life. Education leads to employment, and employment eradicates hunger. Eradication of hunger leads to good health condition. Employment leads to eradication of poverty, which lowers crime rate and provides everyone with an adequate standard of living. And most importantly a service minded government, which will ultimately lead to a corruption free society. Education leads to an interconnected chain of development with one event leading into the other, and we will end up having a well-developed and self-reliant nation. It helps in promoting sustained, inclusive, equitable, socioeconomic, political growth and stability.
India has been facing many issues like poverty, malnutrition, gender inequality, corruption and so on… The only solution to all these issues is education, and once these issues are solved India will move to the next stage of development that is a superpower nation.
Self-reliant India is a vision towards attaining stability and not turning the country into an isolated nation, but to embrace the world even more stronger. A call for a self-reliant and global power India is in the hands of the youth.
Before it can be considered as a superpower, the country must overcome various economic, social, political problems and it also needs to be influential on the international level. India as the fastest growing economy with 5% estimated GDP rate with rapidly expanding economy and military.
By 2047, India will be an economically stable, technologically advanced, resilient, democratic, sustainable, and environment friendly country. India is now considered as a potential superpower, but by achieving all the above mentioned standards India will become a world leader and that day is not so far.
The history of modern India would be incomplete without acknowledging the role played by the youth of this nation. So let’s all work together to make India a global super power and to lend glory to our rich heritage.
