The cultural scenario emerged out of the diversity of our country has many golden laces in the world history. The emotive threads of all Indians irrespective of their language and life have deep roots across lands and waters. The abundance of sweet and spicy resources attracted the west to east. Exploiting the hospitality of our grand fathers, the colonization process had become smooth, of course, even against some odd and isolated resistances. Gradually the guests became hostile to the hosts to grab the wealth of our country.
Amidst the colonization agenda of the British People miraculous infrastructure development had taken place throughout the nation. Indian Railway is one such accomplishment. But the development activities were not for the common people but to satisfy the needs of the British People.
The ambitious people of free India and her Leaders had a dream of new India with fresh flora and fauna. The Five Year plan of Jawaharlal Nehru, being a model propagated and practiced by the Soviet Republic was a shower in the dry lands of the country. The Industrialization through the public sectors enabled our country to run to the developing world with much confidence.
The slogan “Basic Education for all before 1960” inspired the common people. The green revolution projects made the farmers passionate and affectionate to the free India.
• What is the relevance of analyzing the glorious and struggle some past of our country?
• Did those revolutionary changes bring forth welfare to all common people in our country?
• Has the growth and development of the society become Unilateral?
• How did the wealth accumulation of free India Benefited a minority of the people?
• How did majority of the people are deprived of the basic needs?
The independent India after half a century sees the cry of crores of children with malnutrition. 25% of children have been devoid of primary education. 10% children die every year due to epidemics. 30% women are illiterates and gender equality of women propagated by our social leaders has become legal mirage. Human right violations upon the marginalized and oppressed people increase day by day. The frustrated and educated unemployed Youth turn to terrorist activities. Theological Fanaticism and communalism segregated the common people.
Do we have to inculcate the diversity and divergence in terms of the above disparities in our society?
As an engineering student who is supposed to be the architect of the society do believe that we have to rebuild a society with the creativity of the majority of the people in our country.
