Last year I had written an essay on my vision of my 50th birthday for applying for OPJEMS scholarship. Last year I wasn’t selected for interview round but this year I have been selected for the interview.
This year they had asked to write an essay on my vision on India in 2025. This is what i had written this time around. Let’s see if this piece of writing was good enough to earn me a scholarship this time (despite my performance in the interview).
“My vision of India for the year 2025 is that India in 2025 has entered the ranks of developed nations and not tagged as a developing nation. The tag of developing nation has been attached to India for far too long given the amount of resources available. There are several fronts on which India has changed in the last 20 years.
To start with, let me put forward my vision of India’s political system. The people of India are satisfied with the administration of the ruling democratic party. The politicians are no longer looked upon as tainted. They are working sincerely for their constituency. The reports of cases of corrupt officials have died down in numbers. The common man is no more dreadful of the office works involving a visit to public offices such as the municipal corporation.
Next, comes the vision of a clean and green India. The people are aware of the importance of the trees. The cities are planned properly so that there is enough fresh air for everyone to take in. The drainage systems are working perfectly. There is no problem of water-logging, especially in the rainy season. There are trees planted on the roadside at regular intervals.
On the social front, I think India in 2025 is a secular country in a true sense. The people are broad-minded in terms of tolerance to others religion and beliefs. The incidents of religious disputes and riots have become a thing of past in 2025. There exist peace and harmony among the people of my country.
On the economic front, the gap between the rich and poor has been filled to some extent. The people have realized that population explosion is a root cause to their misery and poverty. The Government is working sincerely to provide an earning to all the people of India through the Five Year Plans and others plans of similar intents.
So far, I have discussed the vision of India in 2025 in which I can play a small part. I can’t expect myself to bring all the changes unless my countrymen share my vision and are willing to work along with to realize the vision. Together we can make use of the resources properly to project India as a power on the world map.
Now, speaking on the technology front, of which I hope to be a part of, I see India as having developed a scientific community on a large scale. There are a lot of hard-working scientists who are putting their efforts to make sure that India doesn’t lack behind in the technology. Now,there are some Nobel laureates in India as well.
What can I contribute to my vision? I will try to work sincerely in the best interests of my country. I will try to ensure that I can make an impact in the technological fields of computer science. Apart from that, I would try to act as a good citizen of India. I would try to spread my vision to my locality and convince others to work sincerely for the progress of our country, for their future, for the future of India. “
