India is on a verge of change. This change presents India with an opportunity to transform into one of the most prosperous nations in the world.
Starting with an uncertain future after independence, and in spite of all the odds, India has made good progress and the world today looks towards India with recognition, respect and an emerging super power.
India could have done a lot better. We under performed in educating our masses, we failed to build the needed infrastructure that industry, villages and cities require. In agriculture our much talked about green revolution, adopted on western principles led to large scale depletion of ground water and the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides have severely affected the health of soil and of the farmers. Needless to say we have lost our own tolerant varieties of seeds that were adapted to less water and Indian climate.
