  • The year 2021 is going to be a special one as we will be entering the 75th year of our independence.
  • After centuries of subjugation and struggle, when India attained independence on August 15, 1947, it was a new dawn filled with hope and promise of a better future.
  • But challenges were enormous—poverty, illiteracy, malnutrition, and lack of any worthwhile industrial and scientific base, to name a few.
    • India is recognised as an emerging world power.
    • India is the third-largest economy in terms of Purchasing Power Parity.
    • With a median age of less than 30 years, India is a young nation in an aging world.

What measures are required?

  • Channelize the change-makers: India’s youthful energy needs to be channelised constructively for nation-building. If youth are sufficiently motivated and equipped with necessary skills, they can become change-makers of the society.
  • Focus on inclusive growth: India needs to grow at a rapid pace to raise the standard of living of the people. But this growth has to be inclusive. This growth has to be environment-friendly and sustainable. We are duty-bound to leave a liveable planet for our future generations.
  • Balanced development model: Our development model should also be balanced. We should strive to bridge the disparities that still exist among people, communities or regions. We should endeavour to bridge the rural-urban divide and the emerging digital divide.
  • Public-private partnership: The governments alone cannot fulfil all these tasks. Private sector will also have to join hands. Public-Private Partnership is the way forward for India’s development.
  • People’s participation: Equally important is people’s participation in the developmental programs. The success of Swachh Bharat Mission has amply demonstrated that government programs should become mass movements, owned and led by the people.

India is on the cusp of a major transformation. Our aim is to build an ecosystem where everyone can reach his or her full potential and lead a fulfilling and meaningful life.
