Sixty years back,
was a land, similar to a re-born child, just freed from the clutches of the British. Over 90% of the population was from the rural background. The literacy rate was extremely low. Industries, except those established by the East India Company were yet to develop. People were left to recover from the all the damage caused by the partition. But change happened fast. People began to value the culture of our nation as a whole. India
became a republic. Eight languages were given official importance in the constitution. Thereby, people who spoke those languages were given due importance. States were divided on a lingual basis. And not on a religious scale which in turn promoted unity. People started to migrate to other places in search of jobs and households not withstanding the language barrier and promoted their culture in that area, which eventually lead to fusion of cultures and traditions.

The timeline 1947-2009 (though bits of it are true, the following work is to be considered as a piece of fiction)
Education was given due importance.
’s literacy rate has improved to 62%. India has the largest number of primary schools in the world and The Indira Gandhi National Open University has the second largest number of students in the world. More emphasize is being made to discourage children from dropping out of schools and to pursue their education at the college level. India
Every Indian except the gifted few used to be poor. Due to the Government’s untiring efforts, the standard of living of our people has improved gradually.
During the 1984 Sikh riots, 2002
Gujarat riots, Maoist menace in the North Eastern region and other frequent terrorist activities have tested our country’s unity and peace. But even in times of such turmoil, our people have learnt to stand by each other and survive those testing times.
