ABDUL KALAM’S SPEECH IN HYDERABAD —AN EXCERPT Why is the media here so negative? Why are we in India so embarrassed to recognize our own strengths, our achievements? Welcome 2009 !! We are such a great nation. We have so many amazing success stories but we refuse to ac- knowledge them. Why? We are the first in milk production. We are number one in Remote sensing satellites. We are the second largest producer of wheat. We are the second largest producer of rice. YOU say that our government is inefficient. YOU say that our laws are too old. YOU say that the municipality does not pick up the garbage. YOU say that the phones don't work, the railways are a joke. The airline is the worst in the world, mails never reach their destination. YOU say that our country has been fed to the dogs and is the absolute pits. YOU say, say and say. What do YOU do about it?
