An emerging superpower- India

india-the-next-superpower-1-728

After receiving such a positive response from the article “The Greatness of India” (https://thegreatindianhitch.wordpress.com/2015/01/18/the-greatness-of-india-incredible-india/#respond), I would like to share some interesting facts which are unknown to the people of this country and other countries who undermine the power and greatness of this nation.

  • The country is achieving a high economic growth of over 8 per cent of its GDP annually, on a consistent basis. In fact, India’s economic growth rate is second highest in the world-next only to China. The developed world has been left behind. The two Asian giants-India and China have today turned the leaders of growth of the global economy.
  • Militarily, India is one of the strongest countries in the world. Having the third largest army in the world, it has a huge arsenal of weaponry including nuclear weapons. Its Army, Navy and Air Force are always ready to meet any challenge. India believes in having peaceful relations with other countries, but in today’s world of changing equation, it is necessary to have a military might to deter other countries to do any mischief.
  • ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) recently launched polar satellite launch vehicle (PSLV) which created history by lobbying 104 satellites in a single mission, whereas the previous record was in the name of Russia which marked 37 satellites in one single mission.
  • According to a report by New World Wealth in 2016, India is ranked as the seventh wealthiest country in the world. 
  • Few years ago, Indians (who are considered to be blacks) were discriminated in western countries but now Indian minds are ruling over the world:
    • CEO of Google: Sundar Pichai
    • CEO of Microsoft: Satya Nadella
    • CEO of Adobe: Shantanu Narayen

You’ll find that again. You will!

There was a time she wasn’t sure. In middle of a hurricane, it always made her question- Wonder whether she will get through it, whether all of it is worth it or what if she could not handle, she always had a thought to quit in back of her mind. But she did not quit because she is not an escapist. The day she realized she has to fight back, she won because she was not scared to lose now. In middle of the storm, where she was the most vulnerable, her ears could not listen to the chaos where she listened to her heart which tells her to calm down, so she listens because she knows even if she wanted to, she cannot go back. Life is a crazy, beautiful, confusing journey but it is lived forward. 

We all had those frightening experiences, some of us are still going through or are yet to go, those memories that scare the shit out of us, but you made out and that’s your victory; the ones who are going through it, do remember that “This is Life and it is not supposed to be easy, it is much more than the barbie or X Box games.” But you will make through it. This is the end of the year and I would like to remind you all of your strengths which didn’t let you give up and trust me, you’re doing great! We all have screwed things in past, but don’t blame yourself for everything. Even if you’re low right now, its okay, give yourself some time, find yourself and you’ll rise again. We all have made mistakes in this year and  have left things behind but  remind yourself- You will find them again. You will be happy again. You will be okay, so keep moving!

Looking forward to the coming year with Hope and ready to fight back with everything life throws at you. Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year to all! Stay Blessed ❤

“Demonetization”

This blog has been inactive for some time and sincere apologies for the same.

This might look like not so current issue but considering its long lasting effects, this issue can still be deliberated upon.

“There are always some hardships faced before achieving some end, what we need to analyse- is the means of achieving the end worth it afterall for greater good?”watermark

Yes, demonetization has caused many hardships but at the end, it is all worth it for greater good. This is not just my view, interviewing the people who sell vegetables, auto rickshaw drivers, low income people; the comments I gathered were more or less same as- “Humari pareshaani to do din ki hai, par ab bade logon ki pareshani shuru hogi” (the common man’s hardships won’t last for much time but the bad time for businessman and corrupt politicians will start now); the people having most issues and problems with demonetisation are the ones who never paid tax on their income and gathered a lot of black money.

Considering the income tax raids and notices given to high income businessmen and politicians, there have been several inquiries going for the same purpose, over Rs.2,000 crores black money has been recovered by the income tax raids which clearly shows that the bad time for dishonest people has already started. Not only black money recovery but it has stopped funding of terrorists organisations, money laundering, illicit trade of drugs and weapons, naxalite groups have been caught and some of them surrendered themselves. Yes, it has led to long ques in front of banks and ATMs but at the end, but our efforts and co-operation will lead to a corruption free and cashless India.

 

BJP barring Activists!

The condition of India is very sad specially in terms of justice and order. An Australian Greenpeace activist was not allowed to enter India despite having all relevant documents. Yes. You read it right and that did happen. This is the government’s new stunt. What are they afraid of? Free speech? 
Freedom of speech is something  our Constitution grants but is still subject to violation and prevention. How can we expect justice if our government itself is unjust? And this, my friends, is the bitter truth.

Humans – The World’s Most Dangerous Animals

In the zoo at Lusaka, Zambia, there is a cage where the notice reads, ‘The world’s most dangerous animal’. Inside the cage there is no animal but a mirror where you see yourself.

Yes, we’re the mightiest. Yes, we have brains. Yes, we are more capable than other species. But does it give us the right to do anything and everything and obstruct the lives of other species? Does it imply that we pollute the environment and make life difficult for other living organisms? Why should we twist the laws of nature? Why are we doing this? Does it make sense? Because, ultimately, it will affect us as well. In fact, it already is.

The human population is growing and so is the consumption of natural resources. Global industrialization is at its highest. Nations are developing and people are developing. With so much technology, life is no more difficult. Life is not difficult for many of us, but it may be difficult for the generations to come. For our comforts and our luxuries, we are using up all the resources. We are filling up the atmosphere with hazardous gases. We are draining our trash in the drainage system of the world. We are cutting down our trees and forests. We are destroying the natural habitats of many species.  We are polluting the oceans and the seas. We are even adding up to the junk in space. Why are we doing this so indiscriminately? For greed? We must remember, there our other generations to come. It is high time we decide how we want to leave this planet for our future generation. Its high time now, that we decide.

In the words of Mr Lester Brown, “We have not inherited this earth from our forefathers; we have borrowed it from our children.”

Love Yourself!

8

We are so busy in our lives that sometimes we forget to love ourselves. We forget to value ourselves. We don’t realize our own worth and importance. We often forget to take care of ourselves. We forget the reason for which we were born. We forget our dreams and aspirations. We often let our ambitions go down in the drains. And what does it lead to? Our failure.

So, if you’re reading this right now, stop, look at yourself in the mirror and give yourself a flying kiss. 😉 Because, no one can love you better than you.  No one is a better friend of yours. No one knows you better. You’re the most important person in your life.
If you want to spread the love , first, you need to love yourself. Yes, you need to adore yourself before you adore someone else.

Realize your worth. You’re a precious treasure. There isn’t another you. You’re unique.
Spare some time for yourself. Yes, your life may be a busy chore but always spare time for your hobbies and interests.
Do what makes you happy. Don’t care what people say just do what you love. 
Take care of your body and organs.
Don’t smoke and don’t do drugs. It’s yourself you’re harming and that’s stupidity.
Believe in yourself. Yes, you’re the best and you can do it. Don’t be a coward now.
Forgive yourself. Everyone makes mistakes. It’s alright until you don’t repeat the same mistake again.
Follow your passion. You’re living to fulfill a dream. Catch that and pin it down. Nothing is impossible.

Go ahead and tell yourself the three magical words “I love myself.”
