2047 will be a milestone year for India because it will complete 100 years of Independence. India has made tremendous progress in the last 75 years and we have much to celebrate. But my dream for India is for it to be an ideal nation that everyone looks up to. My vision for India in 2047 is a well-managed, literate and modern country that contributes to the SDG goals (Sustainable Development Goals by UN). I hope that there is mandatory education for all children. Aligning with SDG-4, I would like to see quality education and lifelong learning opportunities for all.
Further to this, I would like a hunger-free homeland, where there is enough food for all. We help achieve SDG-2 by ending hunger and improving nutrition. This food could be bought with money or grown sustainably. Food should not be wasted. Farmers drive the agricultural economy, and they should be trained on using fertilizers and on knowledge of crops. This way we can ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns form SDG-12. Also, if we provide employment for all, people will have enough money to feed themselves. I imagine an India where there would be no poverty (SDG-1). Also, with SDG-8, India can provide productive employment and decent work for all its citizens.
In addition to the above, I also look forward to a pollution-free India for the sake of people, plants and animals. The environment would be clean, air will have low AQI (below 50), water will be free of dirt (SDG-6) and available for everyone.
Moving along, I hope that there is no discrimination based on religion or gender! India would have achieved gender equality (SDG-5), and reduced other types of inequalities (SDG-10). There should be no segregation based on race or religion and women are empowered and have equal rights.
I also envision everyone to have access to medical treatment and health facilities (SDG-3). People should be knowledgeable about their health and fitness and cost of hospitals should be affordable for everyone. We should promote well-being for all at all ages. India should also be able to make progress in science and technology.
Lastly, I would like to see the use of renewable energy for more sustainable cities. This correlates to SDG-7 and SDG-11. The next 25 years will be crucial not just for our country, but also for us citizens. I envision observing a strong and remarkable nation I couldn’t be more proud of!
