Why we are lacking?

August 12, 2006

Have you ever thought in what things we(Indians) are lacking and why??Let me throw some light on it.
India a country of millions is not able to win medals in Olympics,India a country of millions have won just 6 noble prizes till date(excluding V.S. Naipaul who is a British writer of Indian origin) and many other such examples can be easily  quoted.Why is this so? Most of the people say that we lack in resources.Do u think that this is the reason for our failure or there is something more than that?
What I personally beleives is that we are lacking in attitude.We have the guts,we have the resources,we have everything necessary for success except a positive attitude.The whole world is running on the mercy of a few leaders like Bill Gates,Newton,Einstein etc–>people having a positive attitude towards success.Such people are able because they think they are able and we are lacking in such kind of people.
We are lacking in leaders who have the self confidence.Most of us just want to remain a common man running after the pleasures of life.Most of us think the work as a drudgery that has been thrust upon us.

My soul asked me to write this article because I recently encountered some events which were clearly indicating the lack of self confidence.We had to do an assignment to make a shell.One of my friend said “he thinks(prof.) that we have become so much good”.I thought that we are going to become software engineers and the people who are doing this job are not much differnt from us.Then why we are saying “we can’t do”….
“Never say die”.
You may be disappointed if you are failed but you are doomed if you do not try.We must remember that we learn to walk by stumbling.Every failure is a stepping stone towards success just like while compiling a C program,error comes.Then you make corrections.This procedure repeats itself sometimes and in the end,you emerge out as a winner.If you don’t start a work just because you think that it will be a failure,then remove this misconception from your mind because a dictionary is the only place where success comes before work.The greatest failure is the failure to try.Never wonder how to do a job,just start and wonder how you did it.The urge to become someone amongst many has its own charm which shouldn’t be resisted but supported with all the powers that you possess.All the things are going to succumb before your hard work.Don’t cry on failures ….”Let us learn from the past to profit by the present and from the present to live better in future”.
Well,I’m not saying that just Indians are lacking this attitude.Of course,most of the people dwelling on this earth have the same problem.But,the awards are clearly indicating the fact that this is a major problem with us.We have to develop the self confidence,enthusiasm and a positive attitude to emerge out as leaders on the face of earth.

Happy Independence Day(in advance)
