INDIA Poised

INDIA Poised - Its all about jolting the new genration to rise up to build a better tomorrow for INDIA. A great initiative by one of the leading brand names of the country. With great achievers coming out and discussing the future INDIA, am sure its gonna ignite the flame in at least a few hearts.

Here is an incident that kinda froze my feet in the middle of the road and made me think. Maybe she is the real hero cause she doesnt need any achievers to remind her to do something for her world, her country. Being so small and illiterate, am sure she doesnt read the TOI and neither would she even understand the words INDIA Poised.

It happened on a sunny Monday Mumbai morning, not very long ago with me dragging my heavy feet slowly towards my workplace. WIth the road between Sewri station and my office undergoing concretization, as always i saw half-clad kids playing around. The scene tht i saw there was what made me stop and think. A mother standing in a dug up hole and filing clean water in a bottle (may be from a leaking pipe) and not far away from her was her 3-4 year old daughter running towards a tree ... in fact a plant with a stem hardly an inch think and height - about 36 inches ... with that bottle. On reaching the tree she just bent down and watered the roots of the tree .. and did her bit... towards her small world, towards our world, towards our INDIA.

Turning back to us .. why are we the today's generation so selfish, where the central focus is always on 'me' and never on the 'we'. Why cant we do something simple yet make a difference. When was the last time we went and planted a tree? When was the last time we did our bit for our INDIA? If u need to think and search for such an incident ... you surly arent doing enough ... I myself am not.

Wake up, i believe NOW is the time to make a difference ... even if it goes un-noticed ... u would be doing your bit to build INDIA and the world.
