Default Mixed Feelings about the Future - Chetan Bhagat

Independence day is over - here is an article from Chetan Bhagat, please go through it, it is good.

BBC NEWS | South Asia | Mixed feelings about India's future

"Let's build roads first, castles in the air later"


"the country with the average age of 25 years continues to be run by 75-year-old people more interested in hoarding and keeping their power than understanding the country's needs"


"If we can discuss Bollywood stars Katrina Kaif and Ashwariya Rai's dresses, we can discuss party ideologies. Yes, I know discussions won't change anything but it helps build consensus"


"The power of the internet will bring young people together, and don't be surprised if there is another social revolution in India in the next 20 years.
After all, China had one and only then it went on a path of true progress"


Any comments welcome

We need young,dynamic leaders for our country.

One young politician I've been a fan of is Dayanidhi Maran.
Former Union Minister for Communication and Information Technology
He was solely instrumental in bringing in 200,000 Crore rupee in total investments into TamilNadu alone.
Imagine what he can do to the entire country.
