What I have written this week can be seen as a rant. It is the rant of a frustrated Indian who sees the future slipping away. It is the rant of a citizen who would like to act but doesn’t know where to start and what to do.
There is a way out. Three generations of apathy, bad economic policies and collective stupidity have brought us here. But, a generation of hard work can change the course of our nation. It will require some of us to sacrifice professional careers and thriving businesses to take up a cause that is the most important challenge facing us – rebuilding our nation.
We need to create an India that is not just rich and developed, but also one where nationalism and good character reigns in its citizens. We have lost out on the 20- and 30-somethings. But the young and those yet to be born are the ones which are our hope. Some of us have to rise above the ordinariness of daily life so we can build a nation our children are proud of.
