A True Vision for India (Vision 2020 – Planning commission)

July 8, 2007

Kindly Download: www.planningcommission.nic.in/plans/planrel/pl_vsn2020.pdf

In formulating our vision of the future India, it is important to see beyond the limits of the immediate past to rediscover the greatness that is India. Although the present Republic of
India is a young developing nation, our people have a rich and illustrious history as one of the longest living civilizations in the world.

In 1835,even the British historian and politician,Lord Macaulay,Admitted before the British Parliament: “I have traveled across the length and breadth of India and I have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is a thief.  Such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, and people of such caliber… the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural heritage…..”   Thus, it would be wrong to state that in 1947 India started to construct a modern nation from scratch. Rather, it began the process of rediscovering its rich cultural and spiritual values that had formed the foundation of India in the past. It is on this foundation that We seek to formulate our vision of India 2020.
