India had been in the state of slavery for around one thousand years, before finally getting independence. Therefore it is of paramount importance for the leadership to have the vision to ensure that never again India is made slave, neither physically not mentally, at least for the next one thousand years. The question is, is our leadership having such a vision for the long term? It doesn’t seem so.The way the government of India is acting, it will only develop more and more greed among people, and not help build national character. Instead of following constitutional principles, it is acting more like a corporate entity which has to declare its quarterly results.‘Government of India’ have to understand that they are not just ‘Government’, but they are actually the ‘Leadership’ which are supposed to set long term vision for India, rather than focusing on short term economic goals. But unfortunately, it seems like our leadership is more focus on short term objectives, and a long term vision seems missing.Work of the Government is not to satisfy people’s greed, but to build up selfless national consciousness among people. But unfortunately, Indian politics has taken a distorted form, every political party try their best to entice people with various promises, concurrently people also look to vote for parties which would fulfil their short term economic needs. Today relationship between Government and people is like a ‘give and take’ relationship. The feelings of nation-building with long term aspirations seems to be missing in the government, as well as among people.Today we are in a race with the world in exploiting natural resources for short term economic gains, without considering the generations that might come one thousand or maybe ten thousand years later. Every day we proclaim ‘long live India’, but how is possible if we don’t change our attitudes to overexploited resources, what are we going to leave for future India.Are we really concerned about the generation that might come after one thousand years, are we going to leave enough resources for them? and How? Every year different international institutions releases various reports on hunger, happiness and many more, the purpose is to humiliate those nations where consumption rate is low and glorify those nations where consumption are extremely high, they feel proud showing data that how much they use water compared to others. But instead of blindly following them, we have to preserve our negative exploitative nature.The idea of economic growth is based on overexploitation of resources, let’s not follow this. Here the role of our leadership becomes vital, they can change the mentally of people by showing them a long term vision, which would be equally beneficial not only for us but also but generations to come.
