Seven: Day 6 - Seven dreams for India that I would like to see fulfilled in my life-time

Like any thinking citizen, there are some dreams that I have for India and I keep my fingers crossed hoping that the dreams will see fruition in my life-time. Hopefully. But then, it's a tall order. So here are seven, comprising of the base and sublime. 

1. A day when a woman can walk without fear in any part of the country and in any time of the day/night.


2. Cleanliness being followed by every single individual.


3. People who don't jump queues as if it was their birth-right.


4. The word 'corruption' to be completely wiped out of the dictionary of Government officials.


5. There should no discrimination based on caste, colour, creed or conditioning.


6. The local should get precedence over the global (read Mac, Starbucks, Cola, burger, clothes' brands and so on).


7. Academic selection should be based on merit and merit alone.



I bet you have many such dreams for your country. Do your dreams match with mine or do you have some more vital ones that can be added to the list?



I am participating in Write Tribe's Festival of Words from 1st to 7th September where nearly 82 bloggers are writing on the theme of Seven for Seven days - a post a day! Today is Day 6.
 


PostScript: I am already beginning to miss the interaction by way of Write Tribe because today is the sixth day and tomorrow the lovely festival ends :(

  13. Amen to the above, Susan.

  14. United States has IMO a LOAD of #4, some of #5 here and there, but really gone in lot of places.

    #7...but not what you'd think. TOO frequently, our desire to be SO equal, brings many of minorities into Unis, fully "tax-paid". Result is that testing, and course requirements are lessened to accommodate those who wish for a 4-year vacation with pay. My opinion. But colleges all over the US are admitting students who JUST CANNOT READ.

    Thanks, SD. I don't think about this situation often, b/c I might become angered at our SO liberal government. Frustrating. We give away so much money (which country is in $17 TRILLION debt to China)
    so people say to themselves, "Why work? My government care for me."

  15. Amen!

    I whole heartedly agree with all these!
    Wish in some years we could proudly be safe in our homeland!
