This is a very important matter, which is an invitation to all the patriotic and dedicated citizens of the country to participate and contribute in a thought process so essential for improving upon the pathetic condition of India which has been continuously deteriorating ever since we attained independence. I am sure our readers' sincere views on various points would influence the masses and people who matter, to bring about the desired changes for the better.
I love India and want it to be the best in the world in all spheres of life. It has the talent and capability to reach the top. However, I am extremely disheartened to see its deteriorating state of affairs constantly over the past six decades. I attribute India's present day state of affairs to extremely low quality, ineffective and short sighted political leadership besides lazy, highly irresponsible, incapable, corrupt and self serving bureaucracy. The judiciary also leaves much to be desired and does not function on the dictum of "Justice delayed is Justice denied" and is far too lethargic and incapable of acting swiftly to meet the needs of Justice. I feel the need for a drastic revolution to change the picture of my India so that it could become India not only of my dreams but of every Indian's dreams.
1. India of my dreams would be totally a free country and every citizen will have the liberty and freedom to go to any corner and place of the country and do whatever he wishes to do including to work and earn his livelihood.
