India of Our Dreams

Ashutosh Rastogi (Author)
Synopsis As the title, India of Our Dreams, suggests, this book gives the reader a glimpse of the India we all aspire for – an India which is pollution-free, has abundant sources of clean energy, optimum employment and human resource development, right from the metropolitan cities and towns to the remotest villages. The text focuses on what needs to be done to realize that dream. Irt starts with a picture of the ‘India of Today’, the numerous problems and dilemmas that we face and goes on to define what steps we can take to realize our dream, no matter what walk of life we come from. The underlying emphasis is that, regardless of our economic and social status, all of us living in India have to walk on the same road. Breathe the same air and drink the same water as those around us. We all have the right to a common minimum but decent level of education, food and health services – no matter which region of the country, urban or rural, we inhabit. We have the rights, but we also have the duties that are binding; and both rights and duties go hand-in-hand. It is up to us to assess what we can do to ensure that we enjoy our rights. To text systematically delves into the issues that touch the lives of all living in India. It quotes success stories, tried and tested experiments, outlines the existing and expected obstacles, and suggests the remedies. All through runs strong the author’s conviction that we can make India better that the West that we envy because we have the greatest resource – human resource – in numbers as well as in intellect and skill. We can harness it ourselves, or pass the buck to concerned agencies or government – the option is ours.
