india of my dreams

Happier India = Prosperous + Powerful India
By  Shiv Nahata (DPS, Nerul, Navi Mumbai) | OCT 2016

I am a proud Indian who loves his motherland. I wish to make my country an ideal country, a country of many dreams.

I wish to see my country progress in all fields; a richer, cleaner, healthier and happier place to live in, where there is no place for any kind of bias on the basis of caste, creed or social strata.

It should be a land where women and girls are respected and encouraged to pursue their dreams with as much gusto as their male counterparts.

I wish to see my country as the land where no man has to suffer for lack of food or clean water, where basic necessities are available to all.

This will not only ensure prosperity of our country and its people, but will ultimately push us in the league of super powers of the world and that is where I wish to see my India.


Poetry: Motherland
By Neema Maria Biju (XI E, Placid Vidya Vihar, Kerala) | NOV 2016
The land that bore
Your footprints;
The land that gave you
Your identity;
The music of land
Which formed
Language of it’s own
a language which made
Your tongue to create
A world of communication.
It is a place:
Where you began to spread
Your wings of dreams,
A place where
you were Taught to dream.
But the point comes,
When the joints
Of your solidarity
Takes you away from
Your mother’s palm…
Your home becomes
A guest house for you,
Your life is now left
With pain of missing…
Absence of the origin of
Your breath.
Makes you miss the joy of achievements at times…
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.
