INDIA 2020-My Vision of a Prosperous India
INTRODUCTION
In the early 19
th
century, Rabindra Nath Tagore, the great Bengali poet wrote a poem
‘Where The Mind Is Without Fear’
. In that poem he actually described the type of India he would have loved see. He saw everything to be near perfect and each and everycitizen of the country to be cherishing the fact of being an Indian. But he did not take intoconsideration the obstacles that our nation was to face in coming years. In the coming paragraphs I have tried to cover the past, present and the ‘could’ be India of 2020 to the best of ability, after it has faced almost all the challenges that lie ahead after its 60 yearsof independence. It will not be justified to paint a rosy picture without making the canvasfree from impediments.
INDIA AND PEACE
HISTORY:
With the advent of the new era in India on 15
th
August 1947, there was agreat hue and cry about what course should India take to make its presence felt in theinternational arena. India decided not to join the blocs that divide the two edges of theearth.
PRESENT:
This was a turning point. The third world countries actually accepted theleadership of our country as a method to move out of the turmoil created by the twoworld powers. The organization of 
 NON ALIGNMENT MOVEMENT
made our stance veryclear, that was to enhance peace and harmony in the world. Another step was not to signthe NATO that would have resulted in accepting the military slavery of the United States.There are actually many instances where India actually demonstrated the capabilities of aworld leader. One extra ordinary instance is that of 1971 war with Pakistan where after 1

 being into a position of running over the latter, it actually decided to respect the ceasefirecalled by the UNITED NATIONS. India also helped Bangladesh gain stability, politicallyand economically after the war. It was the greatness on the part of India to help settle lacsof immigrants from East Bengal.
YEAR 2020:
By 2020, India will not only become a permanent member of SecurityCouncil but will also play a crucial role in bringing peace and stability ion the war torncountries like the Afghanistan, Bangladesh, etc. It will actually show the world that the path of non violence can be used effectively in promoting peace.
INDIA AND WOMEN EMPOWERMENT
HISTORY:
India was always seen as a country where the women had a lower position tomale. But it was only after the Mughal came to India. Before that it was only in Indiawhere women were seen to be the incarnation of deities. They had the same status in theAryan period as men.
PRESENT:
Somebody has aptly put it that if a nation cannot respect its women itcannot actually progress. India has shown the world that the traits of Indians are such thatthe respect and honour for the women are not alien to them. Right from the time of RaniLakshmibai to Kalpana Chawla and Sunita Willams, Indians have never felt hesitant torespect their better halves in any field that they have progressed. The likes of Indra Nooyi, Chanda Kochhar are the examples that bear the testimony to the fact that we haveutmost respect for the fairer sex. Even if somebody doubts us on the basis of divorcerates, rape cases female foeticide, it will be actually be kind of them to look into thestatics of the countries like the US and UK where such activities are much higher in percentage than in India. Leaving aside all the above examples, haven’t we progressed2

enough according to the standard of the United States where there has been no women president but we a country just as a 60 year old has a women ,Mrs.Pratibha Patil on thehighest seat of authority? The question does need a deep thinking!
YEAR 2020:
No doubt 2020 will actually witness young women leading the bestcorporate houses in India as the shackles of being a conservative nation and the tag of thecountry with backward,
 ghoonghat
clad women has already started to vanish. Theeducation actually will lead women to be self dependent and may be way ahead of malesin every field. The testimony to this is that even the women have been allowed for the place in the combat army functions.
INDIA AND ECONOMY
Progress is the must for any nation. Simply an existence on the earth is meaningless. The progress should be measured by the living standard of the nation. To mention here, theliving standard is not of the affluent section of the nation. The standard of living of affluent society of any poverty stricken and backward country should be reasonably high.
HISTORY:
Taking into account the huge population that India has, it would have beenimpossible to have 100% people above the poverty line and giving them a good, decentstandard of living. The state of economy was in a shattering position when the Englishleft the country. Except Tata industries, there was not even a single industry in India thatwould have helped revive Indian economy in a short span of time. There was no one withthe investment plans in a country where everything was in doldrums.3
