THE LEGACY OF INDIA
November 22, 2019
>"The powerful rules over the powerless who abides" has got a great influence on our country India. Over so many centuries, the country has seen many fluctuations in the judicial system, social order, the ruling classes, and the country's growth rate. Ruled and divided by many and yet overcoming every obstacle it had to deal with in the past, the country still stands tall. Our history has a significant way of guiding us in order to build a better future for generations to come. But do we truly have everything required to become a developed nation?
>With a population of over 1.20 billion ranked 130 among 189 countries of the world in terms of the Human development Index, India lacks the very important aspect of social and economic freedom to be availed in every corner of the nation. Movements in the human development index are driven by changes in health, education, and income. In all these spheres, development is still below the desired level. However, the country's GDP is around 2.6 trillion USD and is estimated to grow at the rate of 7.3% in the fiscal year 2018-2019. The unequal distribution of resources play an important role in unequal amounts of income leading low economic growth in different areas of the country.
>The people and parties who ruled over India were only interested in its resources and wealth. Thus, ignoring the concepts of sustainability, freedom and development of the people, the foreigners have exploited the nation's health violently and consistently. Regional distortions and social disparities which developed during the colonial period continue to play an important role in the Indian economy, polity and society. The socially out-casted tribes and classes have been ignored since the beginning of time and even with the effort of our government and many private organizations, they still lack complete access to a good quality life. The government of India has made concerned efforts to institutionalize the balanced development with its main focus on social distributive justice through planned development. It has made significant achievements in most of the fields but, these are still below the desired level.
>To achieve the goal of political stability, social freedom, economic certainty and to attain a sound living environment, the people have to move on from the destructions done in the past and contribute towards the growth of a developed nation. The discriminations, disparities, narrow mindedness and other inferior human qualities are to set aside and issues like access to opportunities, power to make choices, leading a healthy life and access to education are required to be in limelight. With consistent efforts, the country shall be able to sustain its legacy in terms of life, property and mental health of its human resource.
>But how do you attain the change that is called for. We change it through different modalities whether it be social change or activism or legal change. India is changing through legal the machinery more often than any other machinery be it triple talaq, scrapping of section 377 of the IPC and this is done through relevant cases being brought to the courts and Lloyd Law College is joining into this effort through its PIL Centre for example the students of Lloyd Law College, Top law colleges in india for 3 years llb, filed a PIL before the courts regarding issues like removal of ban on entry of interns to Supreme Court during Miscellaneous days and also for live streaming of proceedings and the also fought for toilet facilities for slum dwellers.
