Why India still a developing country ? I have been thinking this for a while. The largest democratic country in the world with second largest population and India is still struggling to move from the status underdeveloped to developed. What to say, this group of world's second largest population is struggling to get a medal in Olympics.
Some experts say this is a country which was ruled by mighty emperors once and the British came and explored all its resources and left with nothing to develop ourselves. But is that really so ?
As a common man, I believe the main problem here in India is the people who rule, which includes both the executives and legislative. And which is starting from the clerks in a government office to the top officials and the rulers. Our economy has shaped in in its course in such a way that no one who belongs to it can work for its development. If somebody tries to , he will be faced with consequences from all around. As such every young Indians who wish to bring changes in this society, will forced to be like his predecessors once he tarts his career as a public servant.
Indians are still bogged down with its age old system which does allow most of the young minds to think creatively or to bring in something new. It just want them to grow up and settle the life in such a way as his predecessors did. If somebody try to change it, he will become a joker in the society and his life goes miserably.
In short , from a common man's perspective India is still a developing country because of :
- Lack of good leaders with bright vision.
- Rapid growing population.
- Media without social commitments.
- An educational system that prevents creative talents from growing up.
- Ineffective bureaucracy.
- Reservation based division instead of merit based.
- Specific job skills not tested on appointment in public service commissions offices.
- Lack of civil responsibilities in citizens.
