Short Speech on India of My Dreams


Who is responsible for all that ails India? What is the India of my dreams?

Dr. Abdul Kalam had once asked a little girl, what was her dream for India? The reply “I dream of a developed India”.

This impressed him and Ito be honest this is also ‘My dream’. I dream of an India where every one is educated, there is employment for all and everyone is satisfied and happy.

I dream of an India, where many scientists are engaged in doing significant researches, an India, which would be known for great scientific and technological advancements, an India where the likes of Tata’s and Birla’s would come up with new inventions, leaving the whole world amazed, great minds of the world guessing as to how the impossible was achieved An India, which is a leader not only in making new discoveries/inventions but also in spirituality, an India with an excellent net work of roads and bridges connecting even the remotest parts An India, where sustainable growth and development go hand in hand.

Every person plants and cares for a minimum of 10 to 20 trees in his life time, where wild life is safe from poachers, where Man lives in harmony with Nature, where no one is afraid of speaking the truth and where there is no corruption.

Women are respected and people from all religions co-exist and where every Indian is proud of being an Indian. Where people are not afraid of leaving their houses open and there is no crime in the country, everyone is satisfied.

I dream of an India where market places, roads are spotlessly clean, where the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene are maintained where garbage is not spilling on the roads and animals are not roaming around on the streets.

I dream of an India, where farmers are respected as much as any other professional, where people are not superstitious, an India which is not only superior in science and technology but also in sports, where we are able to win maximum medals in Olympics and other international games, This is the India of my dream- this is the India in which I want to live-the India of which I am a proud citizen.

This is my India, a great country dominating the international scene, a land of peace, prosperity and plenty.

In the end, I dream of an India as described by Rabinder Nath Tagore in the following lines.

“Where the Head is held high where the mind is without fear into that Heaven of freedom “O Lord” let my country awake”

    A very concerned speech made by Dr Abdul Kalam, his thoughts match mine. But don’t know about other Indians, people nowadays in India have turned selfish. They live for money rather than making money, one of the sources of living. People instead of being happy are into war with other ethnicity and have forgotten their role in life, as a good human, as a soul and as a person who has responsibilities towards their family and others. I feel sad that great men’s thoughts are being ignored over hatred speeches. Once the minds of people change, they will start caring and work towards developing India, rather than developing themselves.

    thanks for having a special mention about farmer’s scenario.
    the thought that agriculture is a low grade profession has marched into the minds of people. This is a major draw back of our country.
