75 years ago India made a tryst with destiny, Independent India born in 1947 which was drained , divided but desperate to make it up on it's own. After seeking a lot when we found freedom, freedom asked us what you will seek now? Aspiring Indians with full faith and confidence answered 'we will seek a tomorrow which we will write ourselves where the sky would be a limit'.That time it was a challenge for us to look forward with such a great diversity all around and interestingly the whole world was waiting for India to collapse but against all odds India stood firmly and with every successive day, it is proving to the world that India has now become a country with which every nation wants to establish relation and a market where every company wants to invest.The first milestone step towards our journey to prove the world wrong was the formation of an exemplary constitution in front of the world ,the constitution which is not only the world’s largest but the most inclusive constitution ever made . It’s testimony is the fact that the universal adult franchise was granted to every individual of India from the very first day whereas it took 150 years for United States of America to achieve it after long years of struggle . Our constitution ensures not only the fundamental rights of individuals but ensures the duty of the state towards its citizens as well.Successively the successful elections were conducted in 1950’s which shook the whole world that how a country with 80% of its population being illiterate can be able to conduct perfect elections and elected a popular government. Then Unfortunately we came across to the deadliest droughts in 1960’s, but the story not ends here, those countries which were considering India a dependent state, saw its strength and beauty to combat difficulties with the introduction of a successful Green Revolution . A revolution which turned India from a food importer country to the world’s largest pulse and millet producer and the 2nd largest wheat and rice producer country. But India didn’t want to stop here ,successively it came up with a new revolution but this time with a new colour ‘White Revolution’ which turned India from milk deficient country to the world’s one of the largest milk producers, where India today contributes to 22% of world’s total milk production . This revolution was followed by purple , blue and even a golden revolution .Coming ahead, India‘s one more greatest achievement which is astonishing for the world is its space technology development . A country which started its space journey by transporting the rocket on cycle when everyone was laughing on it ,has now created the world record by sending 104 satellites together in space . No one was even ready to accept that how our Mission Chandrayan was too successful followed by our successful Mission Mangal . And now the things are such that NASA wants from ISRO to send its satellite through our PSLV vehicle in space.It is seriously tough for the world to believe that how a country who one’s could not be able to read and write , now producing the world class engineers , doctors and utmost importantly the CEO’s of the companies ruling the whole world. We have the world class IIT’s ,IIM’s where a new inventions as so common that it is the headline of everyday’s newspaper. We are not performing only at these top levels but at the ground root levels too we have weapons like RIGHT TO EDUCATION , SARVA SIKSHAH ABHIYAN and MIDDAY MEAL scheme which are unique of their kind in front of the world.Surprisingly, our life expectancy which used to be 32 years in 1947 has now jumped to 70.19 years. The conditions were too worse in early 1990’s that everyday around 500 children were getting paralysed due to polio but by our consistent efforts in 2014 India announced a polio free country by World Health Organisation . Even during covid pandemic the world has seen how rationally India with the second largest population in the world, managed the crisis situation and ran the 2nd largest vaccine drive with crossing the remarkable figure of completing 200crore vaccine doses.India, a country which is acknowledged in the world as an epitome of soft power has shown multiple times its strength in hard power as well . Remember that liberation of Bangladesh or that Uri strike after the Kargil War. India a country which is famous on one hand for handling cold war with remarkable strategy of NON ALIGNMENT on other hand famous for being the first country to be a Nuclear power outside the permanent five members group of UNITED NATIONS .Though I agree that we had travelled on a rollercoaster ride where we had gone through several downs as well and are not perfect but India’s success story is relied on the fact that we had started our journey from a negative number from where it was not easy to achieve this position where we are right now.We are progressive yet rooted in our cultural values , we are the largest democracy of the world ,known as the world’s pharmacy, has 2nd largest diaspora population , are the leader of the climate change , has one of the largest railway’s network , has weapons like RIGHT TO INFORMATION , has gifted the world yoga and Ayurveda , here every citizen has the identity of Adhaar, everyone country wants to copy our system of UPI in their country and the list goes on . These 75years , 140crore Indians and infinite dreams , let’s celebrate India’s flight and ensure to ‘REFORM ‘PERFORM and TRANSFORM ‘ to our country as further more achievements are waiting and this is INDIA@75.
