On 60th republic day after analyzing economical, political and social conditions of the nation I don't see a very exciting image of Indian republic. although a golden image of nation's economy is presented by high development rate, and by increasing pile of foreign currency, but the other side of the image is also not less scary, terrorism, unemployment, increasing inequality, regional differences among people turning into violence and uncontrolled aggression behind the desires of countrymen is creating an explosive situation. in last 15 years lakhs of farmers and thousands of weavers have committed suicide because of their poor economic condition. number of unsatisfied extremist groups are increasing in Jammu-Kashmir, eastern states including Tamil Nadu, and Maharashtra, this is a serious threat to India's unity and integrity, and in coming years this is going to be a huge challenge in front of our nation, common man is struggling with unemployment, corruption and inflation, today common man is disappointed and helpless. But all this doesn't mean that nation is not developing or progressing, but benefits of the wealth produced by development is not reaching the common man, 1/4th of the population is still below poverty line, and world bank estimates that one third of the global poor resides in India, more than ten crores of people are looking for jobs, and what else could be worse than people of different states clashing with each other for the jobs, today number of naxal affected states have reached to 13 which was initially 3 in number, and initially only one state was suffering of terrorism and today entire nation is a victim of terrorism, in current political scenario every party lacks direction in leadership, so how can they give a direction to their party workers, condition is so worse that our MP's accepts money to ask question in parliament and entire nation watches them accepting bribe on television, I believe its only possible in our country that a politician roams freely with pride despite of several allegations of corruption and criminal cases, and they defend themselves by saying that this is opposition's conspiracy against them, any plan, program or any government unit which is responsible for welfare of people is completely corrupt from top to bottom, if everything continues like as it is going on then we can clearly imagine what our future is. Our agriculture is in danger, according to the report of U.N out of 177 members India holds 126th place, in the poverty list of 102 developing countries India holds 55th position and in adult literacy rate India is on 98th position, our position is not far ahead of the poor countries attached to the Sahara desert, will our government and politicians will be able to bring a change in these conditions ? if we consider the approach of solution of any problem like electricity, water, health , education or any problem related to the people we can see number of failures of our government. Our government has been really busy in singing songs of their achievements but they hardly care about those 35 crore people living below poverty line,10 crore unemployed people, 40 crore illiterates, 5crore child labors and crores of handicapped peoples, biggest thing to worry is those who are running the government they are not at all concerned of these problems, 3/4th portion of our national budget is being spent on those useless bureaucrats who are nothing more then a burden on the nation. Condition of our judiciary is so pathetic that its not able to provide justice to common man who keeps on running to the court for years, number of huge scams take place every year and our government just acts as a spectator and those who are culprits and responsible never get punished, I still think that will our government ever be able to provide food, security, health, justice, employment, and a proper structure of fundamental facilities to common men.

Today almost every country around the globe is affected by terrorism, and I believe that no country is 100% safe from terrorism whether its USA ,UK or any other nation like India, but most of those countries who have seen the atrocious face of terrorism have made themselves safe to quite an extent , but unfortunately condition of India is much worse then others, because it has a neighbouring country who has connections direct or indirectly to every four incidents of terrorism out of five. Most of the roots of terrorism are in Pakistan, this has been stated by British PM Gorden Brown while he was on a visit to India. India seems helpless because neither India can change its attitude towards Pakistan nor India can stop the aid given to terrorism from Pak's side. At this point of time India needs an extensive and organized plan to strengthened itself on outer and internal front, to protect itself from outer and internal threats,the biggest emphasis should be laid on the borders to make sure that they cannot be infiltrated,on this aspect India can take the example of America and Israel,I agree that this is very expensive thing to do, but
  • doesn't India invest a huge sum to provide latest weapons to its soldiers
  • doesn't India always deploy large number of soldiers on LOC in Kashmir
If once India spends this huge amount to protect its borders then further its defence expenditure could come down to quite an extent, India will have to apply this strategy to not only on Pakistan border, but also on Bangladesh and Nepal border, since India is surrounded by sea from three sides Navy and Coastguard design should be prepared in such a way that no one could infiltrate through sea route. Intelligence agencies are the strong, powerful and important part of any nations defence which not only collects the information, but also should always be prepared to take appropriate action according to the situation. If India would have learnt from its mistakes that were being committed during Kargil, and would have acted timely on the information provided by intelligence agencies then may be 26/11 wouldn't have taken place and lot of things could have been done to avoid Mumbai attacks, and if India doesn't learn anything from 26/11 and doesn't strengthened itself then attacks like these are really hard to avoid. India needs to take its immigration policy seriously we often hear that lakhs of Bangladeshis have entered illegally in India, they have also arranged themselves Indian Ration card, voter id card and other id cards, those people who have allowed these people to get into India are criminals, but those who deploy them as labors in the greed of cheap labours are also criminals, Bangladesh border is not like other normal borders, then what's the guarantee that people coming from there are not terrorists, and point to be taken is, who arranges fake identity cards for those illegal immigrants, internal security also means that the people responsible for helping those illegal immigrants should be punished. Internal security also means to deal with all sorts of treasonous elements with strict laws and courts must take action against them without delay to set up an example for others. India needs to check its policy of secular and democratic freedom, and seriously reconsider its policies, if democracy gives the freedom of expressing views and pay respect to human rights, then it should also be capable of punishing those who misuse these liberties, freedom doesn't mean freedom of all sorts. When we talk about external strength then it means India needs to strengthen itself internationally, today world powers are becoming more impressive and successful by lobbying, India lacks behind in this aspect from many countries, entire world accepts that terrorists training camps are still running in Pakistan, everybody knows that education in Madarsas is not only restricted to religious knowledge, who doesn't know that Taliban has taken birth from these Madarsas? most of the countries believe that Pakistan is responsible for 26/11 attacks, but Pakistan has been denying this, ignoring what the world believes, and is still in the denial mode, question is why doesn't the international community do something about this ? why USA and UK are still providing funds to Pakistan to fight against terrorism? when its quite clear that where and how these funds are being used by Pakistan,
  • has India raised its voice against this ?
  • has India opposed this thing?
  • has India taken strict measures to stop financial aid to Pakistan?
India needs to carry an intelligent and active approach to reveal the hypocrisy of Pakistan on international level. In America new presidential rule is about to start, but India hasn't made any effort to change the foreign policy of Washington towards Pakistan, India will never get such an opportunity to drag Pakistan to its actual place, India should not pay importance to those people who say that Pakistan government itself has no control over terrorists of their country, if they can't control their men then it has nothing to do with India, its their problem and why should India suffer because of their impotency, conditions are favourable for India that Interpol and U.N Security Council are present for India's help. The ideal meaning of friendship between two neighbouring countries means that both nations should make efforts to maintain peace and prosperity, otherwise one sided ideology of friendship turns into stupidity or weakness.

Neither Forget - Nor Forgive Is Mandatory This Time

Pranab Mukherjee has been using Sort of language which is expected from foreign minister of a great country like India to deal with Pakistan which is a complete failure as a nation, now this is not hidden from anybody that terrorism is a part of Pakistan's national strategy. If Pranab wants to take his threatening to logical extent and secure nation from terrorism, then he and central government will have to give a clear message across the border, that neither can we forget- nor forgive the terror attacks of 26/11. Its only possible if we come out of hesitation and doubts, that has been a sign of our national view point towards Pakistan. Today we need to come out of all sorts of illusions and accept the reality. Although Pakistan was born because of delusive belief that Muslims deserves a separate nation but it took merely 25years to split in two parts,and most of the south Asian experts believe, Pakistan will split in few more parts.
Opposite to alive democracy like India, Pak preferred to be a Islamic nation and we all witnessed its strong political and social impacts. The biggest social impact was that Pakistan almost banished its Hindu population, when Pakistan was formed it had about 25% Hindu population and now it is 1.64%, now coming on to political aspect, lack of actual democracy encouraged pak army to grab the power of nation and maintain its grip on the country, Pak army maintained the environment of war against India, even when there is some political government in pakistan, pak army doesn't mind to go for one sided operations against India which we all have witnessed as Kargil war. Pak army's first attempt to capture Indian land was in October 1947 when they intruded in Jammu and Kashmir, and Jawahar Lal Nehru went to U.N to complain rather then following the advice of top army officers like Field Marshal Kariyappa and General Thimaiyya, U.N suddenly gave the orders of cease fire and in this way India lost an area of about 30,000 sq.miles to Pakistan, Indians not only soon forgot what Pakistan did to us but also forgave them, this suicidal attitude of Indians encouraged Pakistan to attack India, and in 1965 India was attacked although Indian forces pushed the intruders behind, and captured important posts of areas like Haji Peer and Titwal this battle also turned into a war in all aspects ,which ended with the interference of U.N, when things turned to normal Pak's foreign minister zulfikaar Ali Bhutto announced in Security Council that their country will keep on fighting with Indians for thousand years and when Indian representatives showed their objection over this statement Bhutto commented "Indian dogs are going back home". May be it seems unbelievable but its true when Bhutto was abusing us, India lost everything what ever Indian army won in the war of 1965 on the table of Tashkent summit, after that in 1971 when India raised its voice against unlawful activities of Pak's army, then once again we were attacked by Pak and this war changed the map of Asia and and Bangladesh was born as the result of this war, but it also gave India unwanted refugees around 2 crore in number, in the war of 1971 Pakistan was badly defeated, and India not only captured the area of around 5000 sq.miles but also captured 93000 war prisoners, but once again P.M Indira Gandhi returned everything to Pak, in Shimla summit to the very same Bhutto who gave Indians uncountable abuses. Undoubtedly we wouldn't have faced the disgrace of 26/11 if we would have kept on telling our next generations about the words which were used by Bhutto towards Indians. Its absolutely weird that those politicians of our nation compromised with national interests, who used to do intelligent talks when they were in opposition, biggest example we have is of Atal Bihari Vajpayi he strongly opposed the strategy of donating everything won, followed by India after the war of 1965 and 1971 he also criticized the statement of foreign minister Swarn Singh that "Shimla summit is the first step towards peace", on 31st July 1971 in Lok-Sabha Vajpayi said "we have been taking first step since last 25yrs, we took the first step when Nehru and Liyakat Ali Khan met, when Nehru and Ayube Khan met that was also the first step, in Tashkent meeting of Shastri and Ayube Khan was also called first step and now again we are taking first step through Shimla summit." 25yrs later after giving this statement when Vajpayi became P.M of India it was his turn to forget everything and forgive Pakistan, Vajpyi also started to speak the language of Swarn Singh. He went to Pakistan with bus and hugged Nawaz Sharif, and pakistan answered this gesture by Kargil, after some time due to international pressure Vajpyi invited Musharraf to Agra summit, in return Pakistan gifted us with an attack on our Parliament in the short period of 3yrs Pakistan knifed Vajpayi three time in his back. Now once again congress is in the power and as usual is under the impact of NRI's, people among us who are aware and concerned towards the security of nation, need to remind the government that
  • If we wouldn't have forgotten that we have lost 30,000 sq.miles to Pak, war of 1965 wouldn't have taken place.
  • If we would have shown strong courage in 1965 and refused to bow, Pakistan wouldn't have dared to go for a war in 1971,
  • If we wouldn't have lost all the advantage gained after war of 1971, Pakistan wouldn't have had power to perform intrusion in Kargil,
  • If we wouldn't have forgotten Kargil, our Parliament wouldn't have been attacked,
  • If we wouldn't have forgotten Parliament attack, Mumbai wouldn't have been attacked
Incident of Mumbai has once again provided us an opportunity to show our unity and integrity, but we can't do that unless we give up our attitude of forget and forgive.
