India @ 62

It's my blog's Paper Anniversary! Yet another year into the democratic way of life! India turns 62 (the new prescribed age for retirement). Well there has not been much change in the way of life. Things looked little disciplined in between but then "Yeh Hai Hindustan Meri Jaan!!!"
So some questions that still remain unanswered are as follows:
Why is the media here so negative?
Why are we in India so embarrassed to recognize our own strengths, our achievements? We are such a great nation. We have so many amazing success stories but we refuse acknowledge them--- Why?
We are the first in milk production.
We are number one in Remote sensing satellites.
We are the second largest producer of wheat.
We are the second largest producer of rice.
Look at Dr. Sudarshan , he has transferred the tribal village into a self-sustaining, self-driving unit. There are millions of such achievements but our media is only obsessed in the bad news and failures and disasters. In India we only read about death, sickness, terrorism, crime.

Another question: Why are we, as a nation so obsessed with foreign things?
We want foreign T. Vs, we want foreign shirts. We want foreign technology.

Why this obsession with everything imported. Do we not realize that self-respect comes with self-reliance? I happened to meet a 14 year old girl on the Independence Day I asked her what did she wish to see on the next Independence Day. She replied: I want to live in a developed India .
For her, you and I will have to build this developed India .We must proclaim.
India is not an under-developed nation; it is a highly developed nation.
