In 3000 years of our history, people from all over the world have come and invaded us, captured our lands, conquered our minds. From Alexander onwards. The Greeks, the Portuguese,the British, the French, the Dutch, all of them came and looted us,took over what was ours.Yet we have not done this to any other nation. We have not conquered anyone. We have not grabbed their land, their culture, their history tried to enforce our way of life on them. Why? Because we Â respect the freedom of others.
In this era, Our citizens need intellectual freedom, where Education is not denied because of societal or economic discrimination. Through which we can remove illiteracyÂ and eradicate poverty.
India must STAND UP TO THE WORLD. Unless India stands up to the world, no one will respect us. Only strength respects strength. We must be strong not only as a military power but also as an economic power. Both must go hand-in-hand.
One of the key requirements towards achieving this would be through Enriching childrenâs education in rural areas and Â to underprivileged students.
