india of my dreams

Development is the key
By Aleen Abraham (XB, Placid Vidya Vihar, Kerala) | NOV 2016

India begins with ‘I’….I that is ‘me’. I have a dream “The India of my dreams”. As an Indian, I prefer the best for my country. India’s glory should reach at its peak point. India is greatly renowned for its heritage, cultures and traditions.

It is a great nation that displays unity in diversity. Even with these qualities India needs to be more developed. In my dream India, there will be development not only in the field of science, but also in the fields of agriculture, literature, economy and in the society.

Along with the talented and hardworking scientists, India has gained glory and will gain glory. We will treat our farmers as professionals and will even be proud to be one. India will nurture the great writers and poets of the modern world.

Women and elders will be treated with respect and dignity. They will be able to live without any fear of being harassed. The society will stop objectifying women. The birth of a girl child will be celebrated.

Girls will be encouraged to go to schools. My dream India will be free from gender-bias and inequality. The diversities within India will be preserved be it language, culture or religion.

Poetry: Incredible India
By Johns John (XB, Placid Vidya Vihar, Kerala) | NOV 2016
In my dreams
My place is beautiful and looks
United by love and faith
My sisters are set free,
Physically and socially
Their ambition touches the sky
All I say is my place is full of freedom.
Meanings of corruption, poverty
Terrorism, war, untouchability
My place doesn’t know.
It is very clean and safe
It is full of green and blue
My people are strong not weak.
My place will not die but others will.
My place offers “dream jobs” for my people
Oh my god,
oh my god so beautiful my place is;
and the place is my INDIA
My dream, my only dream for INDIA
my dream must be our future
for our Incredible INDIA.
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.
