One very powerful piece of writing that I came across on the front page of today’s ‘Times Of India’:
D. O. Two simple letters. Place them side by side however, and they form a word potent enough to turn a mass of people into a nation.
The last time we decided to Do or Die, it changed the map of the world. Today, the eyes of the world are on us again.
So what are we going to do?
How are we going to turn from a land of philosophers into a nation of do-ers?
Are we going to keep thinking about what we should be doing or do something about what we are thinking?
Are we going to simply shrug our shoulders, blame our infrastructure, our bureaucracy and our political system?
Or are we going to roll up our sleeves, get up and actually do something about it?
The truth is this.
Thinking can happen from an armchair. But doing must happen on your feet.
Thinking may be a great way of getting things started. But doing is the only way to get things done.
And let’s face it. You are never really caught in a traffic jam. YOU are the traffic jam.
Today we are in our 60th year of independence. That works out to more than half a century.
And we’re still happy being called a potential superpower, an emerging economy or a sleeping tiger?
This must change.
And it is only possible if some of us seize the day and dare to be the change.
So let’s stop basking in our glorious past or daydreaming about our great future. Let’s start by dominating today.
And domination starts with DO.
This is so uplifting! And so true! If we could change in ourselves what we wish to see in the country and the world, we would be living in a much better place! 🙂
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY IN ADVANCE!!!! MAY EACH ONE OF US CULTIVATE THE POWER TO CHANGE OURSELVES, IN THE PROCESS CHANGING INDIA AND THE FACE OF THE WORLD!!
