This is not a review of the book. I am in no position to do that. This is just a compilation of the points I thought, points that came up in the discussions I had with a few seniors, discussion I had with my internship professor in Hong Kong, my lab mates during my internship at Paris and also the ideas from Ignited Minds. An attempt to answer the question on "How can people like me (young and educated) contribute to India's development?"
(Order is not important)
- Say NO to corruption
- Pay taxes regularly and honestly
- Don't practice social evils like untouchability, dowry, female foeticide, etc
- Keep our country clean
- Stop whining about everything Indian. Respect India, its culture, its people. If we need to make small talk, we start talking about how bad it is, how bad our government is, etc in buses, trains and other public places. If you have a solution, suggest it. Just whining that India is bad in public places have led to this situation that we don't really respect our country
- Don't blindly respect everything foreign. Don't buy foreign goods just because its foreign
- Don't fight over religion, caste, place of birth, language, etc. Believe in unity of the country.
- Vote honestly without any bias
