Happy Republic Day to all! It's a day to introspect for our dear Motherland, though every day a few minutes should be spent doing so as dutiful citizens of our wonderful India. 

Below I present 26 changes that I wish to see in India:
1. Nonstop electricity to every village, house, farmer..renewable energy is best solution #StopClimateChange

2. Wi-fi in every city, town, village..just think of revolution that democratisation of information can herald!

3. Sufficient water for all- implement rainwater harvesting, prevent leaks, give incentives for saving water

4. Voting by every eligible citizen- #VoteForIndia, #VoteForStability, use #RightToVote & #BringChange

5. Every child in school, every school to impart vocational skills rather than furthering only rote learning

6. Sanitation to be set up in every house- every village should be #NirmalGram, #DRDO bio-toilets in all trains

7. Electoral reforms- intra-party democracy, no tickets to criminals, increase limit on election spending, #PowersToEC

8. #ConnectIndia thru infrastructure- highways, roads, ports, bridges, inland waterways, MRTS, bullet trains, airports

9. Rehabilitate urban, rural slums-give them dignity, house, education, skills so #IncredibleIndia can truly be so

10. Make processes transparent,simple,accountable so that chances for graft reduce; Spread #EGovernance

11. Afforestation for #GreenIndia & saving our remaining 23% land covered by forests; punish timber smugglers

12. More conservation of India's unique biodiversity- sanctuaries, national parks, zoological parks, #SaveTigers

13. Conserve our dying rivers #GangaYamuna; stop pollutin rivers beyond recognition; mass cleanups required NOW

14. Police Reform- as Police Act 1861 MUST NOT govern free India's police; make them responsive, tech-savvy

15. Judicial Reform- we don't want lakhs of pending cases;confiscate corrupt people's wealth & recruit judges

16. Women's safety- until India's 50% populatn is not safe, included, respected India's growth cannot occur

17. World class educational institutions from #IndianSoil like erstwhile Nalanda; no #BrainDrain, only #BrainGain

18. Affordable health care access to all- #HealthyIndia for unthinkable development & growth of #India

19. Roti, Kapda, Makaan- nutritional security, clothes for every season, affordable housing for all #DignifiedLife

20. Mechanisation of agriculture- to realise true high productivity of India's immense fertile soil

21. Vocational skills, education, skill-building of Indian youth so that demographic dividend is truly realized

22. More investment on Science&Tech- innovations, R&D, #ISRO, vaccines, automobiles, renewable energy, #DRDO

23. Revamp #IndianTourism- conserve/popularise sites,build better hotels,train local people, boost eco-tourism

24. Boost to private entrepreneurship which has best potential to create max jobs; make it investor-friendly

25. Stop #IndiaBashing, uphold #IndiaShining, #BeProudToBeIndian, work hard for India's progress

26. Learn right things from the past & elders;Teach right things to kids/youngsters for responsible future

  4. To stop brain drain we must start teaching in Indian languages as Gandhiji wrote in his book. Learning English is ok but learning everything in English is not ok. Japan & China are two example that we can develop by learning in our own languages. We need to give priority to Indian languages in both education & jobs.

  5. Excellent ! I appreciate your thinking. I am very much attracted by your point 'Rainwater harvesting'. another is #StopClimateChange. Change of climate is a serious matter in front of humans. But, is global warming happening ? or it was pre-planned by some politicians and scientists of the world to digest huge money in the name of research and spreading awareness ?
    Sixteen prominent scientists in 2011-12 signed an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal expressing their belief that the theory of global warming is not supported by science. New data shows that in fact the Earth has not warmed at all over the last 15 years. In fact, the Daily Mail reports that the Met Office and the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit, after taking data from nearly 30,000 stations around the world, have found that the earth stopped warming in 1997. The report suggests we are headed toward a new solar cycle, Cycle 25, which NASA scientists have predicted will be significantly cooler than Cycle 24 which we are in now.
    Why did we all hop on board the global warming bandwagon started by politicians when the scientific community didn’t back it? In the year 1998, 31,000 scientists have signed a petition agreeing with the fact that there is no scientific evidence or consensus that man-made global warming exists.

  6. Those were a lot of changes, I must admit.
    However, many more are required and if I go on tho list them, you will have a blog post on your hands rather than a comment. :D
    But yes, these are all the basics required to herald even further development.

  11. Great post Amrita and yes these are the dreams even after 65 years of Independence. Most of them are basics of life. Education is one the best weapon that can help in achieving most of the above points. Hope such changes do come in the near future.

    1. Thanks a lot Fayaz for reading and commenting on my post. Ya, still a shame that even 'basics' remain unattained 65 yrs later. We all need to work ceaselessly for changing India for the better.

  12. A truly feel good patriotic post indeed.
    Amrita , if atleast 25% of the above mentioned comes true , then India would be a much much better democracy. It's not that we are not proud of our country , it's just that there are lots n lots of things in the current situation which needs to be improved. Like they say . "No country is perfect , the citizens need to thrive to make it one"
