Once more people will get drunk it being a holiday - oh wait ... its on a Saturday. Damn! One holiday gone ! WTF !
I though am thinking on other lines.
Its been 60+ years now since India gained Independence. And I wonder.
I wonder how. I wonder why.
There are almost no world class achievements.
I can only think of one achievement which puts India on par with other world powers. The Delhi Metro. I see that and think - wow ! This is something which the people have done which we can proudly say we are shoulder to shoulder with other countries.
I am sure there are other achievements, but I can't think of any.
Achiements like a gold medal in the Olympics don't count - for a country so vast and with so much potential, a single gold medal is like a consolation prize. I am thinking more on the lines where can say 'hum kise se kum nahi' .
What are your thoughts ? What achievements can you think of ?
