“India is the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grand mother of tradition. Our most valuable and most artistic materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only!” – Mark Twain
India, a nation of billions; billion dreams,billion expectations,billion hearts and billion souls. The land of the tricolor is considered to be one of the richest in history and culture. It has been defining diversity and conserving its heritage since decades unknown. As an Indian, we embrace these cultures and traditions as the foundation principles of our lives. These traditions have been the moral core of the nation.
Living in India is certainly the most vibrant journey in anybody’s life. When we can see a nation progressing on the chords of their military and industrial advancements, Bharat(India) has developed unanimously as a nation of pride and glory. Sanskrit, the mother of all languages to the invention of “Zero” in Mathematics by Aryabhatta, all started from the nation which had been colonized by the British for 200 years.
But within the Indian Society, submerged in the mindsets remain strings of stereotypes which rages a war against the very moral foundation of this beautiful nation. Poverty has been a major drawback and technological advancement in many corners of the nation hasn’t been achieved. Although the loopholes are pretty transparent , negligence has proved a major factor of not being able to exile these demons from our society.
In India, everyone lives as one big family. We envision an utopian society within the borders of this nation. We face the rain and the drought of life together. Brotherhood has been a catalyst in building this nation from the scratch.
India, a land of dreams but limited opportunities. Yes, its true most of the brilliant minds in the leading corporate and technological centers of the world right now are Indians but opportunities in newer and innovative sectors are scarce thus leading to forfeiting our dreams of being different and paving our own road rather than walking the same trodden road, following the footsteps of the Greats.
India, a land of romance, exotic places and scenic surroundings, is surely a place to visit in any traveler’s bucketlist. From Taj Mahal to the Himalayas to the Nicobar Islands, India never fails to amaze any person from any part of the globe. As an Indian we believe in the saying “Atithi Devo Bhava”which is a Sanskrit verse and is translated to “Guest is equivalent to God”. In India, one can enjoy the nightlife of the modern cities and also can breathe in the fresh air of villages. India is a land of color and vibrancy. From the cities to the villages, India is made up of textures which touch every realm of life.
India is not a culture or a society. India is a dream. India is hope. India is a place where you can break free from the shackles that bind your feathers pulling you down from the sky. India is you. India is me. India is Us.
