  2. 2. Symposium – The Youth Parliament Mission “FATEH” Mission “FATEH” AbstractThe seeding for the national independence took place around 1857 or even before with the vision of an independent& free INDIA. After 58 years of progress, the aspirations are mounting that India should become a developedcountry. This is the second vision for the nation. How we can prepare ourselves to this challenge? A strongpartnership among the R&D, academy, Industry and the community as a whole with the Government departmentswill be essential to accomplish the vision in a mission mode. Rural Prosperity through Connectivity, Interlinking ofrivers, Employment Generation through entrepreneurship are some areas where a lot of steps have to be taken andto execute these all works efficiently depends on Creative Leadership that can be given by young & quality leadersas the leaders are the creators of new organizations of excellence.Introduction:Since our independence in 1947, in many aspects of life, improvement in literacy, agriculturalproducts, and strategic areas, certain small and large-scale industries took place. Also, the lifeexpectancy has increased. We are capable of producing sufficient food grains, cereals and milk.Today, India has the capability to design, develop and lead to production strategic systems fornational development and security. Also, we have seen in the ambient conditions the growth inthe Information Technology. When India was clamped with economic sanctions in 1998, after thenuclear tests, by developed world, we combated successfully.Need of another Vision: o Although, we have seen the growth in the Information Technology but the country is progressing in a limited way in software business and in hardware we are yet to take off. o The nation is going through a major challenge of uplifting of 260 million people who are below the poverty line and 370 million people who are not literate. They need habitat, they need food, they need health care, and they need education and employment and in short a good life. o Our GDP is growing approximately at 9% per annum on an average. Whereas, the economists suggest that to uplift the people below poverty line, our economy has to grow at the rate of 10% per annum consistently, for over a decade. Then it is possible for India to get developed economically. o Our employment generation system is not in a position to absorb the graduates passing out from the universities leading to increase in educated unemployed, year after year. There is a large mismatch between the skills required for the modern economy and the education imparted to most of these students.2 Rajesh Kumar
  3. 3. Symposium – The Youth Parliament Mission “FATEH” o Economic growth and investments have not kept pace with the availability of human resources. This situation will lead to instability in the social structure. o To achieve best, there is always the need of a direction or Vision. This was the vision of leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Jawahar lal Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Rajeev Gandhi and many more which have led us up to this point. Their visions were correct at that time according to the situations. But, now, we want to put our INDIA on the list of Developed nations, this needs another vision again, we can’t pursue with the old visions as we want change now, a revolution on the whole.Areas which are needed to be revolutionize:The important five areas which are closely inter-related and would lead to national, food, andeconomic security are listed as: 1. Agriculture and food processing - we have to put a target of 400 million tons of food and agricultural production. Other areas of agriculture and agro food processing would bring prosperity to rural people and speed up the economic growth. 2. Reliable and quality electric power for all parts of the country. 3. Education and Healthcare - Education and healthcare are inter related. Information and Communication Technology - This is one of our core competence. I believe that this area can be used to promote education in remote areas and also to create national wealth. 4. Strategic sectors - This area, fortunately, witnessed the growth in nuclear technology, space technology and defense technology.Major Missions:Some of the major missions which are essential for transforming India into a developed nationthey are: Providing Urban Amenities in Rural Areas (PURA) and interconnecting river basinsand Employment generation through entrepreneurship. The brilliant minds who are graduatingtoday would become partners in these missions and transform the country into a developednation. 1. Rural Prosperity through ConnectivityNearly 700 million people of India live in the rural areas in 600,000 villages. Connectivity ofvillage complexes providing economic opportunities to all segments of people is an urgent needto bridge the rural-urban divide, generate employment and enhance rural prosperity. Theintegrated methods, which will bring prosperity to rural India are: the physical connectivity of thevillage clusters through quality roads and transport; electronic connectivity through tele-communication with high bandwidth fiber optic cables reaching the rural areas from urban citiesand through internet kiosks; knowledge connectivity through education, vocational training forfarmers, artisans and craftsmen and entrepreneurship programmes.3 Rajesh Kumar
  4. 4. Symposium – The Youth Parliament Mission “FATEH” 2. Interlinking of riversInterlinking of rivers is essential for controlling floods and droughts, for making drinking wateravailable to all regions, for transporting goods and navigation, for generating more cultivableland and generation of hydel power. This mission will also provide large scale employmentopportunities through out the country. Science & Technology may be very useful in this area aswe have innovated techniques i.e. satellites (*role of youth) 3. Employment Generation through entrepreneurshipA three pronged strategy is needed to make education more attractive, make it skill imparting andsimultaneously create employment potential. o The educational system (*role of youth) should highlight the importance of entrepreneurship and prepare the students right from the college education to get oriented towards setting up of the enterprises which will provide them creativity, freedom and ability to generate wealth. Diversity of skills and perseverance in work makes an entrepreneur. It should be taught to all the students. o The banking system should provide venture capital right from every village level to the prospective entrepreneurs for undertaking new enterprises. o There has to be an economic pull for human resources; for example generation of marketable products and enhancement of purchasing power among the people through the implementation of national missions. The educational institutions, Government and the private enterprises should become facilitators for creating this entrepreneurship scheme through the support of the banking system and the marketing system.Feasibility:The mark of success could be established only when the Youth will understand the need of thetime and will start thinking about the India’s Development rather than being self concerned.Inspiration: o India was in a ship to mouth existence for food grains. If the American ships do not bring wheat, there will be a famine in India. But there were two visionaries who worked together with the farming community and brought the first green revolution. They are the political thinker Shri. C. Subramaniam, the Agriculture scientist Dr. M.S. Swami Nathan and Dr Kurien the master mind behind the white revolution. o The Vision of nuclear programme led to establishing series of nuclear power plants adding 3000 megawatt power to our electrical grid of 100,000 megawatt.4 Rajesh Kumar
  5. 5. Symposium – The Youth Parliament Mission “FATEH” o In 1980s, India had a very low base in Information Technology. Some young entrepreneurs with their innovative and creative thoughts, within the difficult boundary conditions of Indias rules and regulations, showed how IT enabled services can fetch export revenue(*role of youth). Subsequently, even Govt. had to bring out innovative and liberalized IT policies. Now, our young IT entrepreneurs are making export revenue of 15 billion dollars.Conclusion:Creative Leadership (Role of Youth)There are 540 million youth below 25 years in the population of a billion people. The nationneeds young leaders who can command the change for transformation of India into a developednation embedded with knowledge society. The leaders are the creators of new organizations ofexcellence. Quality leaders are like magnets that will attract the best of persons to build the teamfor the organization and give inspiring leadership even during failures of missions as they are notafraid of risks. The creators of vision and missions always found to be youngsters.One of the very important ingredients for success of the vision of transforming India into adeveloped nation is the evolution of creative leaders. I am giving a connectivity betweendeveloped India, economic prosperity, technology, production, productivity, employee role andmanagement quality, all of which linked to the creative leader. Who is that creative leader? Whatare the qualities of a creative leader? The creative leadership is exercising the task to change thetraditional role from commander to coach, manager to mentor, from director to delegator andfrom one who demands respect to one who facilitates self respect. The higher the proportion ofcreative leaders in a nation, the higher the potential of success of visions like developed India.There is a need for the creation of creative leaders who will be participating in the transformationof India into a prosperous, happy and strong nation. I am sure as the youngsters who made theIndia’s first mission a reality, India’s second vision i.e. Mission “FATEH” will be a reality aswell.5 Rajesh Kumar
