Last week, Union Minister of Human Resource and Development, Prakash Javadekar in a speech in MIT School of Government, Maharashtra expressed his belief in the power of democracy.
According to him, in democracy every individual is given equal opportunity to accomplish their ambitions.
He said that if one believes and practices work with discipline and sincerity, and is ready to work hard to develop his/her talent, then in the end the person will be successful.
He gave examples of three leaders of India who had reached the zenith in spite of all odds faced in their lives.
Pointing towards the hard work and achievements of Narendra Modi, he stated that the Prime Minister was from a poor background, had no legacy, yet with diligence, labour and talent he became the Prime Minister of India, leading the country towards greater prosperity.
He, then mentions the present President of India, Ram Nath Kovind, who belongs to an unprivileged Dalit family in Uttar Pradesh, and in spite of all the hurdles he made himself an advocate of the Supreme Court and finally after years of hard work was elected the President.
And finally, Venkaiah Naidu, who also belonged to a poor farmer’s family, and after years of sincere contribution to the country, he became the Vice-President of India.
The Union Minister summed up the speech by asserting that without expecting the results of your labour, if you keep on working democracy will give opportunity to everyone to fulfill their dreams.
