Today India is 60 Years Old.

I'm proud and privileged to have been born in this great country that is marbled in history and shaped by the ecstasy of achievement and anguish of war.Its air evokes the history of cultures, especially those which have been enriched, ripened and mellowed by experience, whether of joy or of pain
India has come a long way since its independence but 60 years is hardly a long time in the history of a nation.But , of course, its long enough to know to which direction a nation is heading and that is up to the people of this great nation to decide whether its going up or down, whether its going to pieces or its holding.
As far as i think in last 60 years India has shown that it has the capacity to hold, the capacity to grow, the resilience to face the most turbulent storms and still steady itself within the shortest possible time.The independent India had not had a smooth sailing on the whole, but we are steady and self-sufficient. Our progress has been hampered by many events, many forces, within and outside, but remarkably the resultant motion forward has been quite ultimate and that is what gives hope to us the people of India that India is a great nation.We can look back and take satisfaction at many achievements of the Indian people, sometimes overcoming serious odds.And, I'm not disregarding many of our people's failures in this process.And here i dare to say that the future of India is bright but the way for india will never be smooth.
It's been 60 years today that our democracy remains not only intact,but a vibrant and proven force in our existence. India remains a secular state while respecting fully all the religions of the country and that is one of the other aspects that makes this nation of ours great.A country as big as India (seventh largest in the world) and holding the second largest population of the world which is multi-religious, multi-lingual and is also multiplying, the problems are daunting for such a country.Each passing day means so many more mouths to fed,hands to be employed, minds to be educated, bodies to be clothed, housed and given health care.This means that to meet the challenge of an alert and skilled population which inches towards the 1.5 billion mark.Thus to satisfy this huge chunk of people new policies and innovative methods to use our resources skillfully will be needed and such satisfaction can come only if people concerned feel that they are participants all along the line - from formulation,implementation and fruition.There is one thing that can be said about India without any second thoughts and that is, that India is changing; and changing faster than ever before and what is important is that its changing to her own likes, we are changing in the various departments of our life on our own terms.
So people please work together to realize the vision that our practice of democracy have made possible over the past 60 years to make this great nation even more greater.

Indian Armed Forces Soul (Service,Selflessness,Courage)

The men and women who lay their lives down in our defense are truly a source of inspiration for all of us.These personals are towering pillars of resilience,loyalty,love,strength,courage and friendship who scale extraordinary heights unknown to us all.They teaches us that how can we,like them, overcome any situation,any battle - emotional or physical and also that how you can stretch your boundaries - and know that there are no boundaries.
The armed forces personals has a very profound sense of loyalty,an unqualified selflessness,a great valour and discipline, a sense of great courtesy and kindness.Their concerns are essential,worries profound and struggles intense.Split second decisions are made that could mean the difference between life and death.Body and spirit, both have to be trained and honed.
Our serving personals have stretched their boundaries and redefined their own capabilities much before they have seen real action.The armed forces are truly a one million plus family. They give and draw from each other what we would normally expect only from close family members: support,care and presence. Be it in life's trying time or in life's happier moments. They celebrate achievements and mourns tragedy shoulder to shoulder.There are numerous stories of spouses,parents,siblings,children of those who have served, and how they have created and maintained a strong web of love and support.There are battles not just with opposing forces but with the nature too - in the minus 40 degree Celsius chill of the mountains, in the 50 plus heat of the deserts.I salute their courage and determination in the line of duty.
