I still believe there is hope for India. We, who are aware, can influence kids (ours + those we interact with) to be responsible citizens. Only thing is we need to lead by example and kids will absorb it. I have seen it working with my nieces - simple things like not littering, use and need of wearing seat-belts etc. Convincing my 8-year old niece about the benefit of using seat-belts, led my BIL to start using it - she pestered him so much that he converted to using seatbelts.
Another way I found is to make those people aware to whom kids look up to, eg. teachers. I have a teacher friend and I have been able to convince him about the need to talk to his students not only what is there in the books, but about basic civic sense, a sense of pride for the country etc. Not in a preachy tone, but in a way that makes it interesting and imbibable for the kids. I have noticed this also works.
So, there is still hope for India.

For me, people should be courteous to each other on the roads. That would go a long way in becoming a better nation
