“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open” were the words of our first Prime Minister ,Jawaharlal Nehru.Crime ,corruption,murder,crisis on social,political and economic level are pertinent to today’s world system.We,the people of 20th century feel unprotected,live in constant fear and uncertainty, anxiety and melancholia.We have troubles in our schools,offices,colleges,homes,hospitals,police stations and everywhere,we are tensed about our past,present and future,we complaint,we get distressed and life goes on.But,even for once have we tried to lessen the negativity in us and look at the world from a different perspective? have we ever avoided being judgemental?have we ever tried to be the change we want to see in the world?

With all its worst elements,our world is after all not such a bad place to live in.With its physical beauty and amazing diversities it is indeed something that we are gifted with.We say that it is the time of Kaliyug(in Indian terms),a period of upheaval ,failing to acknowledge the developments and progress the world is making at all the levels.Global warming and acute pollution is undeniably present but parallel to this what benefits we are getting is often ignored.We have industrialization providing employment to innumerable people,helping in the economic development ,providing us with comfort at all levels,saving manual labour.We complaint of poverty,over-population(land to man ratio),illiteracy and fail to see the approx 9.2% growth which India has made in terms of literacy in the past ten years.With its average annual GDP growth rate of 5.8% over the past two decades, and reaching 6.1% during 2011–12,India is one of the world’s fastest-growing economies. The President of India is the supreme commander of the nation’s armed forces; with 1.325 million active troops, they compose the world’s third-largest military.

The government is sure corrupt but who is working under it?it is our greed and inordinate ambition that takes over our better half.Scams,riots,blasts all will keep on occurring but we cannot deny the simultaneously developments and progress a country makes,afterall good and evil cannot exist without each other’s company.

Today in terms of society,we see women from all spheres of life pursuing their education which was not a common sight earlier.Even a housemaid or a manual laborer wants her daughter to study and not live the live she herself is living.We no more see social practices such as sati happening around us and the number of child marriages are negligible when seen at the national level.She raises her voice and she gets heard unlike older times when she was restricted to homes,in purdah,but today she is independent,she earns her living,competes with men in all fields and emerges victorious.Now we can even boast of the study opportunity that our country is providing to the transgender,it sure is in its nascent stage but such a step promises advancement and passage to equality in terms of education.Though India is thought to become the most populous country in the coming days,we can see a lot of nuclear families around us and many of them have only a girl child,it is due to certain demographic factors that it has become difficult to curb the growing population but the fact that all of us are trying,be it due to personal factors,cannot be denied.Increase in marriageable age,inter-caste marriages and even inter religion marriages are taking place and many of the couples are happy and satisfied. At the workplace in urban India and in international or leading Indian companies, the caste related identification has pretty much lost its importance.

In terms of the political developments we can see reforms taking place be it terms of education system or judiciary.Further,the high functioning metro trains and now mono rail(Mumbai) are certainly a source of relief for the otherwise tensed crowds at the rush hour.We are also expecting the inception of speedy bullet trains in India.

The economic liberalisation in India refers to ongoing economic liberalization started in 1991 of the country’s economic policies, with goal of making the economy more market-oriented and expanding the role of the private and foreign investment. Cities like Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, NOIDA, Gurgaon, Ghaziabad, Pune, Jaipur, Indore and Ahmedabad have risen in prominence and economic importance, become centres of rising industries and destination for foreign investment and firms. Today, fascination with India is translating into active consideration of India as a destination for FDI. The A T Kearney study is putting India second most likely destination for FDI in 2005 behind China. It has displaced US to the third position.

The Indian “Media” has been rebuked and criticized often for their unabashed and honest opinions about politicians,movie stars and sportspersons,but at the same time it serves as the voice of common people.We express ourselves to the government,to the elite through these sources.We agree that newspapers and television have a lot of false news and display innumerable time consuming advertisements ,but the freedom of speech that they have and the impact which they make with that freedom is powerful. Indian media—private media in particular—have been “free and independent” throughout most of their history. India consumed 99 million newspaper copies as of 2007—making it the second largest market in the world for newspapers. Following the economic reforms satellite television channels from around the world—including BBC, CNN, CNBC, and other foreign television channels gained a foothold in the country. Doordarshan, in turn, initiated reforms and modernisation. India’s telecommunication industry, the world’s fastest-growing, added 227 million subscribers during the period 2010–11,and after the first quarter of 2013, India surpassed Japan to become the third largest smartphone market in the world after China and the U.S.

The history of film in India begins with the screening of Auguste and Louis Lumière moving pictures in Bombay during the July 1895.Raja Harishchandra,a full length feature film was initiated in 1912 and completed later.Alam Ara (released 14 March 1931) directed by Ardeshir Irani was the first Indian movie with dialogues.Indian films were soon being followed throughout Southeast Asia and the Middle East—where modest dressing and subdued sexuality of these films was found to be acceptable to the sensibilities of the audience belonging to the various Islamic countries of the region.As cinema as a medium gained popularity in the country as many as 1, 000 films in various languages of India were produced annually.Hollywood also gained a foothold in India with special effects films such as Jurassic Park (1993) and Speed (1994) being specially appreciated by the local audiences.Expatriates throughout the United Kingdom and in the United States continued to give rise to an international audiences to Indian movies, which, according to The Encyclopædia Britannica (2008) entry on Bollywood, “continued to be formulaic story lines, expertly choreographed fight scenes, spectacular song-and-dance routines, emotion-charged melodrama, and larger-than-life heroes”.Present day India produces the most films of any country in the world.Major media investors in country are Yash Raj Films, Dharma Productions, Aamir Khan Productions, UTV Disney, Reliance Entertainment. Most of these productions are funded by investors since there is limited banking and credit facilities maturity in India for motion picture industry. Many international corporations, such as Disney (UTV), Viacom (Network18 Studio), and Fuse Global (AKP) have entered the nation’s media industry on a large scale.

Rising awareness amongst people to save electricity,environment,to identify diseases,to buy appropriate manure and seeds and their education in various fields through radio and television programs is a big initiative taken by the government. We are trying hard everyday to improve ourselves and so is the country.It wants it’s people to make discoveries ,enhance skills and above all become a better human being. If you’re walking down the right path and you’re willing to keep walking, eventually you’ll make progress-Barak Obama.
