New-Gen Independence Day Message!

Posted by Girish Krishnan on August 16, 2007

It has been 60 years since India started its journey afresh; Ever since that time, it has been trying to shake away scars of its harrowed past. Whenever a nation goes through the trauma of slavery and finally escapes the clutches to break away into the realm of freedom, the scars remain. We understand that it might take generations to be fully free again, change is slow especially when it has to act on a kaleidescope of cultures.

60 years and India has already given birth to a new generation. The present is a critical time for our country because we co-exist with a generation that has experienced the pangs and aftermaths of British rule from close proximity. Progress of a society comes from two directions – that of its own conscience and that of its well being. I believe as a society we are high on conscience and act in a manner grounded out of peace when we face with challenges to humanity. We have picked up on creating a business revolution within that feedbacks into improving our well being as a country, but we still have a long way to go. Most of our brothers and sisters are still very very poor.

The biggest hindrance i find in India’s progress is the mindset of the elder generation. It is definitely not business savy , and has created a political landscape marred with corruption and inaction. Our governments are mountains of slack and there is corruption at all levels. Ministers aren’t educated enough and lack any kind of vision and planning; their short term goals are rooted on their own existence and well being.

I understand and propagate that there is no point cribbing – the progressive alternative is to take the lead on ourselves, there is no point leaving it to the rest of the country! Taking a cue from “Rang De Basanti”, i have this message – Lets join politics, lets join army, lets create corporates and influence the government, lets remove corruption from those levels that affect the common man first, and tackle the sharks later. Lets create a culture of efficiency and vision at the lower levels first, and have a solid base to bring excellence at all echelons of governance….lets get ourselves going!!!

Jaago India!!.. the world beckons our rise!!

    Well Girish, good to see the enthusiasm but i have to disagree with you on blaming older generations for the current situation. its an easy thing to do. The other things u mentioned joining politics, joining army…etc are easy too. The difficult part is to stand up and raise the voice.

  2. Hi Sachin – I agree it is easy to blame, but facts need to be quoted crisply upfront – The quest for why people behave the way they did is of not worth the postmortem. If the CEO of a company fails to deliver or things go bad during a particular King’s Rule, we express a view that he/she could have done better.The older generation and its rulers – starting from Nehru, all the way till Manmohan Singh are responsible for what we are now. Till the early 90’s when IT started picking up and found a way to leverage the talent pool of India, we were in a pathetic stage with no future in sight. Ask VP Singh or DeveGowda if they forsaw such a future for India based on their strategic decisions? .. no way!! The reasons for why the older generation is the way they are can be varied.But i would assume that we could have done much better over the last 60 years than what we have actually done..
