BHARAT KI AWAZ (PAPERBACK)
Reflecting the concerns, aspirations and dreams of the Indian youth.
It looks to me that we need a second vision for the nation, just like the one we had when we were actively pursuing our freedom movement against alien rule. At that time the spirit of nationalism was very strong. This second vision that is needed for making India a developed nation will once again bring the spirit of nationalism to the fore.
Having tasted the fruits of development Indians are hungry for more - more education, more opportunities, more development. But their dreams of a prosperous and united India seem precariously close to being shattered as the demon of divisible politics, the gaping economic inequalities, the increasing terror and unrest within and at our borders tear into the vitals of the nation and the very idea of nationhood. Under such conditions how do we preserve the core and concept of India and aim for development?
Addressing these concerns and providing some answers in Dr Kalam who believes that at the heart of the nation is the individual and it is only when each individual citizen achieves success that the nation can succeed. Fired by idealism yet grounded in reality, Spirit of India shows that it is possible to progress at both the individual and national level provided we abide by the principle 'that the nation is bigger than any individual or organisation' and understand that 'only borderless minds can create a borderless society.
