Young at 65, and getting better than ever before!
65 years ago, the then Prime Minister, or more specifically India’s first Prime Minister gave the speech titled “Tryst with Destiny” that got recorded in the most sought after tomes of history. The second Paragraph of this humble yet motivational speech went on as – “At the stroke of midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom.” Well, the rest of the world did sleep, but they woke up to take cognisance of an India stronger than the said mightiest. The struggle of India not just to earn her independence, but through every second that ticked for 65 long years, has earned her places worth cherishing in modern day history.
From the economic point of view, India which began its journey as the poorest economies in the world, has made it to be the 3rd largest economy (GDP as per PPP Basis, based on year 2011 results). India’s achievements is not something that could be summarised into this blog post, though the below given video that I posted in YouTube a few years ago could very well give a glimpse into “the Indian achievements”.
