india of my dreams

Need more support from government, society
By Stuti Sarkar | NOV 2015

I also have dreams like others. When I think about it, many dreams peep in my mind. I am trying to capture some of them for Billion Beats. Corruption, dishonesty, crime and terror are our big enemies. They are making our country weak day by day.

My main dream is to build our India free from all these bad elements. Our county is progressing a lot in science and technology, so we have to destroy all these harmful elements. I have another dream of creating an India where everyone will be equal.

No discrimination among them based on cast or creed. My dream is to spread patriotism among all Indians people call us differently-abled or children with special needs. We are special, so our needs are different from other children. When we are diagnosed by a doctor, our parents face enormous problems.

Our childhood starts with different types of therapies and medications. Both are very expensive and our parents face financial problems. Our parents are put to greater difficulties due to our mood disorders.

We are also citizens of our county. The government should give some financial support to the parents of special children. Society can give moral support too. I think our condition has improved a bit now, but still we are not in the mainstream. Please organise awareness programmes for children with special needs from time to time. Jai Hind!

His ticket to success came from strong will
By Vagdevi H.S., Nov, 2015
As they say, the real opportunity for success lies within the person and not the job; as was proved wonderfully by Mohan H. M., a simple bus conductor in a city bus who has secured a Doctorate degree in History.
Born in a small besmirched village of Harohalli, Mohan completed his primary education and moved to Mandya for college education. Nurturing his mind with great thoughts and ambitions, he moved to Mysuru to continue his degree. However, fate had a different plan. With the sad demise of his father, he had to quit studies and start working for Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC). When he started issuing tickets to hundreds of students commuting by bus every day, the concealed spark within him kindled again, which prompted him to work towards his dreams. He completed his Master’s Degree in History from KSOU and wrote the entrance exam for Ph.D. To his surprise, he stood second in the test, which assured him a seat to continue his research work. During the entire course, he juggled between work and a familial life while pursuing research paid rich dividends. Finally, all his hard work paid off and he was awarded the Doctorate degree. Being a voracious reader, he wants to publish books in Kannada to help students from rural areas to get a better scope of education. This, he says, is his humble service to the society. “As a student, I faced a lot of trouble not having access to research material in Kannada, which limited my resources,” he says. Today, not only his family and friends but also the KSRTC is incredibly proud of him and his achievements. Dr. Mohan H.M. has proved that the journey of success begins with one step and the strong determination to succeed.
