In the India of my dreams, there will be peace and harmony. Every citizen will be literate. India will reach great heights. It will be free of violence, terrorism, hunger and suffering. It will be filled with compassion, peace and happiness.

Every Indian will be happy. Every type of work will be respected. Highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene will be maintained in the India of my dreams.

This is my India — a great country, a land of peace, prosperity and truthfulness where no one is afraid of speaking the truth and where there is no corruption . It will be a country where women are respected and people from all religions co-exists and where every citizen is proud to be an Indian.
