A post on the eve of New year 2013

The year 2012 has ended on a melancholy note for us. Democracy in India is now in the crossroads of world polity. The jubilation that we once had on achieving our independence has now become a faint memory. The greatest experiment of Parliamentary democracy anytime in history is now showing signs of septicemic decay ; which if left to rot may lead to disastrous consequences for generations that yet to come. The founding fathers of our nation were men and women with uplifted vision and dreams in their eyes ; and when they to came to debate and codify the constitution : they did so with immense faith and belief in India and its inhabitants. They were optimistic that we as people of this country would be a beacon of light to other emerging nations on how a society that has roots that stretch long time backwards can adapt themselves to modern ideas, and be supple enough to accommodate new thoughts streams without forfeiting the basic rights and dignity of an individual which is the primal principle of a strong nation.

I would not to place on record the wonderful preamble to our constitution that was enacted on 26th November 1949. This should be the prayer of every Indian each day. If we could realize even a minuscule part of this glorious vision contained in these lines, I am confident that we shall become what we were destined to be - A nation that shall lead and not be led.. Here we go

"WE, THE PEOPLE OF INDIA, having solemnly resolved to constitute India into a SOVEREIGN,DEMOCRATIC,REPUBLIC and secure to all its citizens:

JUSTICE,social,economic and political;
LIBERTY of thought, expression,belief,faith and worship;
EQUALITY of status and of opportunity;
and to promote among them all
FRATERNITY assuring the DIGNITY OF THE INDIVIDUAL and the unity of the nation;

IN OUR CONSTITUENT ASSEMBLY, this twenty-sixth day of November 1949, do HEREBY ADOPT,ENACT AND GIVE TO OURSELVES THIS CONSTITUTION."


Wishing all of you a glorious new year. God bless!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
