An Essay and Article On India On Road To Progress
Agricultural research in India has discovered new methods and techniques to produce more food. Mechanization in agriculture is going apace. With further improvement in methods and techniques and greater mechanization we will have cut for good the Gordian knot of any shortages of food. We shall be producing enough not only for our home consumption but for exports as well. In the field of industrialization we have achieved notable successes and with the setting up of a number of steel plants, machine building plants and heavy electrical factories we have already created the industrial infrastructure which will constitute a base for further industrialization, with prospects of reaching its culmination by 2020 A.D. We are developing our means of communication and transportation and are endeavoring to construct roads and railway lines extensively so that all the places of India including cities, towns, villages and even the smallest hamlets may be linked with one another.
Our means of communication and transport will become cheap enough and the poorest of citizens will be enjoying air travel. We are developing our atomic research and have already built up the base for greater and greater utilization of atomic energy for peaceful purposes. Further development of this cheap and perennial source of energy will ease the strain on the conventional sources of energy and a substantial proportion of foreign exchange earnings that are consumed in importing petroleum and petroleum products will be saved. The funds so saved will be channelized into areas promising better standard of living of our people. In space research we shall have touched new horizons. Like the U.S.A. and Russia we shall have sent our spacecrafts to other heavenly bodies and interplanetary travel might become a possibility.
Living Standards Of People In India
However, we will use our space research not for aggrandizement but for knowledge which may be utilized to raise the standard of living of our people. It shall become easier for us to predict, with far greater accuracy and certainty than at present, the onset of typhoons, hurricanes and cyclones which every now and then cause colossal destruction of life and property. In computer technology India will become a superpower even before 2020 A.D. Every department of life will get computerized. The manufacturing of computers indigenously will become one of the priority tasks before the government and private entrepreneurs. We shall not need to import them from abroad. India has succeeded in developing a super computer of its own and in future she will be able to compete on equal terms with any advanced country of the world. Computer sets will become as common in Indian households as radio sets and television sets.
Wireless communication technology will gain further impetus and its successful linkages with computer technology will add new dimension to India’s advancement in science and technology. Further advancement in electronics will open new vistas in different fields of human activity. The day is not far off when we shall be moving in motor cars driven not mechanically but electronically. Thus science and technology will he developed to a great extent and will be harnessed for useful purposes. The invention of new types of machines and gadgets will save a lot of human labour and human life will no more remain drudgery to most of us. The science of medicine will make further progress and many diseases which are now considered incurable will be rendered curable. Cure for cancer and aids is likely to be developed in India and it will be possible by its efforts to integrate the indigenous system of medicine with the western system of medicine in a more acceptable and effective form. In the field of health Yoga will attain to a glory that it was in ancient India. Its scientific use and application will ensure perfect health and will dispense with the necessity of taking medicines.
All this will bring about happiness and good living to our people who have for centuries been tormented with poverty, squalor and disease. India will thus become a prosperous country like the advanced countries of the world and will at the same time succeed in establishing an egalitarian or socialistic pattern of society in which exploitation of all types will cease and everyone will get the fruit of his labour. Everyone will be earning enough to meet not only his basic needs but also to enjoy some comforts and luxuries. We visualize India of 2020 A.D. consisting of people healthy, happy and prosperous, proud of themselves and their motherland and wide awake and alive to their duties, responsibilities and rights as free citizens of a free and sovereign country in the shaping of whose destiny everyone will be playing an honest and useful role. We shall not lag behind in our military power, for in order to guard our freedom it is indispensable to build up a strong defense. We shall be maintaining an efficient large army equipped with the latest weapons of war, which will be produced indigenously, so that no power on earth may dare to look at our freedom with covetous eyes. With economic prosperity and strong defense at home, we shall be earning a more honorable place for ourselves in the comity of nations. India will become a permanent member of the United Nations. Our voice in international affairs will be heard with greater attention and respect. We will not embark on adventures of conquest of other nations with our military might but will be endeavoring to organize world forces for the establishment of world peace. We have so far painted a bright picture for the future of India.
Health projects In India
But let us also listen to what the prophets of doom have to say. Their predictions might never come true but they are useful in as much as they warn us to desist from taking recourse to such habits of action as might spell disaster and ruin. They say that the present anarchical conditions in our public life, glaring disparities of wealth and status, large scale exploitation of the many by the few, the uncontrollable specter of population expansion and the concomitant evils of unemployment, slow pace of development and above all the deplorable state of our morality do not constitute a happy augury for the future of India. These fears are understandable but they may be set at rest only by adopting an optimistic attitude to life. As a matter of fact what is happening all around us and is worrying us is but a transitional phase. There must be no doubt that order will come out of disorder as certainly and as irresistibly as the day follows the night. Every cloud has a silver lining. Let us harbor radiant hopes for our future and work, every one of us, strenuously and assiduously to make India the best, the greatest and the strongest nation of the world by 2020 A.D. Let the spirit of India flutter and fly and spread the message of goodwill, peace and harmony, all around this globe so that humanity be delivered out of the centuries of misery, sorrow and suffering.
