The two India's

There are two India’s in this country, one which is straining at the leash, eager to spring forth and live up to the multitude of adjectives that the world has been showering upon us. The other India is the leash. One India says gives me a chance and I will prove myself, the other India says, prove your self first and maybe then you will have a chance

One India lives in the optimism of our hearts, the other India lurks in the skepticism of our minds. One India wants while the other India hopes. One India leads while the other India follows. These conversions are on the rise. With each passing day, more and more Indians are coming over to this side .And quietly while the world is not looking.

A pulsating, dynamic new India is emerging. An India whose faith in success is far greater than its fear of failure. An India which no longer boycotts foreign made goods but buys out the companies that makes them instead.

History one says is a bad motorist. It rarely signals its intentions when it is taking a turn. This is that rarely ever moment. History is turning of age. For over half a century our nation has stumbled , run, fallen, rolled over, got up and dusted itself and then taken a bad fall again. But now in our 60th year of independence, a small tiny India is looking at bottom of the ravine and hesitating, the other India is looking up into the sky and saying : Its time to fly.
