H e l l o  F r i  e n d s..
I was in Hyderabad giving this lecture,  when a 14 year old girl asked me for my autograph.  I asked her what her goal in life is.  She replied: I want to live in a developed India. For her, you  and I will have to build this developed India.  You must proclaim. India is not an under-developed nation;  it is a highly developed nation.  Do you have 10 minutes?
Allow me to come back with a vengeance.  Got 10 minutes for your country?  If yes, then read; otherwise, choice is yours.  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?  Take a person on his way to Singapore. Give him a name...YOURS.  Give him a face...YOURS.
YOU walk out of the airport and you are at your International best. -  In  Singapore you don't throw cigarette butts on the roads or eat in the  stores.  YOU are as proud of their Underground Links as they are.  You pay $5(approx. Rs.60) to drive through Orchard Road(equivalent  of  Mahim Causeway or Pedder Road) between 5 PM and 8 PM.  YOU comeback to the parking lot to punch your parking ticket  if you have over-stayed, identity. In Singapore you don't say  anything, DO YOU?  YOU wouldn't dare to eat in public during Ramadan,in Dubai.  YOU would not dare to go out without your head covered in Jeddah .
YOU  would not dare to buy an employee of the telephone  exchange in London at 10 pounds(Rs.650) a month to,  "see to it that my STD and ISD calls are billed to someone  else." YOU  would not dare to speed beyond 55 mph (88 km/h) in Washington and then  tell the traffic cop, "Jaanta hai main kaun hoon  (Do you know who I am?). I am so and so's son.  YOU wouldn't chuck an empty coconut shell anywhere other than  the garbage pail on the beaches in Australia and New Zealand.  Why don't YOU spit Paan on the streets of Tokyo?  Why don't YOU use examination jockeys or buy fake certificates  in Boston?????  We are still talking of the same YOU.
YOU can respect and conform to a foreign system in other countries  but cannot in your own. You throw papers and cigarettes on the road  the moment you touch the Indian ground.  If you can be an involved and appreciative citizen in an alien  country,  why cannot you be the same here in India?  Once in an interview,  the famous Ex-municipal Commissioner of Bombay, Mr.Tinaikar,  had a point to make. "Rich people's dogs are walked on the  streets to leave their affluent droppings all over the place,"  he said.  "And then the same people turn around to criticize  and blame the authorities for inefficiency and dirty pavements.  What do they expect the officers to do? Go down with a broom  every time their dog feels the pressure in his bowels?
In America every dog owner has to clean up after his pet has  done the job. Same in Japan.  Will the Indian citizen do that here?" He's right.  We go to the polls to choose a government and after that forfeit  all responsibility. We sit back wanting to be pampered and  expect the government to do everything for us whilst our contribution  is  totally negative. We expect the government to clean up but we  are not going to stop chucking garbage all over the place nor are we going to stop to pickup a stray piece of paper and throw it in the bin. We expect the railways to provide clean bathrooms but we are not going to  learn the proper use of bathrooms.
We want Indian Airlines and Air India to provide the best of food and toiletries but  we are not going to stop pilfering at the least opportunity.  This applies even to the staff that is known not to pass on the  service to the public. When it comes to burning social  issues like those related to women, dowry,girl child and others,  we make loud drawing room protestations and continue to do the reverse  at home. Our excuse?  "It's the whole system which has to change, how will it  matter if I alone forego my son's rights to a dowry.
" So who's going to change the system? What does a system  consist of?  Very conveniently for us it consists of our neighbours,  other households, other cities, other communities and The government.  But  definitely not me and YOU.When it comes to us actually making a  positive  contribution to the system we lock ourselves along with our families  into  a safe cocoon and look into the distance at  countries far away and wait for a Mr. Clean to come along & work  miracles for us with a majestic sweep of his hand or we leave the  country and run away.
Like lazy cowards hounded by our fears we run to America to bask in  their glory and praise their system. - When New York becomes insecure we run to England. When England experiences unemployment, we take the next  flight out to the Gulf. - When the Gulf is war struck, we demand to be rescued and  brought home by the Indian government. Everybody is out to  abuse and rape the country. Nobody thinks of feeding the system.  Our conscience is mortgaged to money.
Dear Indians, the article  is highly thought inductive, calls for a great deal of introspection  and  pricks one's conscience too?..  I am echoing J.F. Kennedy's words to his fellow American to  relate to Indians?.  "ASK WHAT WE CAN DO FOR INDIA AND DO WHAT HAS TO BE DONE  TO MAKE INDIA WHAT AMERICA AND OTHER WESTERN COUNTRIES ARE  TODAY" Let's  do what India needs from us. Forward this mail to each Indian for a  change instead of sending Jokes or junk mails.  Thank You,  Dr. Abdul Kalaam --

YOU would not dare to speed beyond 55 mph (88 km/h) in Washington and then tell the traffic cop, "Jaanta hai main kaun hoon (Do you know who I am?). I am so and so's son. YOU wouldn't chuck an empty coconut shell anywhere other than the garbage pail on the beaches in Australia and New Zealand. Why don't YOU spit Paan on the streets of Tokyo?

Very conveniently for us it consists of our neighbours, other households, other cities, other communities and The government. But definitely not me and YOU.When it comes to us actually making a positive contribution to the system we lock ourselves along with our families into a safe cocoon and look into the distance at countries far away and wait for a Mr. Clean to come along & work miracles for us with a majestic sweep of his hand or we leave the country and run away.
  • 10. Like lazy cowards hounded by our fears we run to America to bask in their glory and praise their system. - When New York becomes insecure we run to England. When England experiences unemployment, we take the next flight out to the Gulf. - When the Gulf is war struck, we demand to be rescued and brought home by the Indian government. Everybody is out to abuse and rape the country. Nobody thinks of feeding the system. Our conscience is mortgaged to money.
  • 11. Dear Indians, the article is highly thought inductive, calls for a great deal of introspection and pricks one's conscience too?.. I am echoing J.F. Kennedy's words to his fellow American to relate to Indians?. "ASK WHAT WE CAN DO FOR INDIA AND DO WHAT HAS TO BE DONE TO MAKE INDIA WHAT AMERICA AND OTHER WESTERN COUNTRIES ARE TODAY" Let's do what India needs from us. Forward this mail to each Indian for a change instead of sending Jokes or junk mails. Thank You, Dr. Abdul Kalaam --
