India was freed on August 15,1947. It was free to govern its destiny.
The Indian history had written
yet another chapter in its book. Soon the pages will be turned and another chapter would be
written. Time has the quality to put a blanket over the past.
At the time of independence, India was just recovering from the effects of second world war and the post-war reconstruction schemes had to be completed without delay.
Since independence, India has made enormous strides & faced enormous problems. The mere fact that India has not like so many other Third World countries, succumbed to dictatorships, military rule or wholesale foreign invasion is a testament to the basic strength of the country's government and institutions. Economy has made major steps forward in improving agricultural Output and Industries have expanded to the stage where India is one of the World's top ten Industrial powers.
Today, the Indian economy is a dynamic one &
a vibrant one. The true measure of India's success is that
India has transformed itself from a Third world country into one of the
World's fastest growing economies.
