Happy Independence Day– To the world’s most challenging nation.
Our nation’s people are consistently facing the question of whether they should be proud of our nation or ashamed of it, as there is a much greater divide in India, which is often called a land with varied cultures, communities, and traditions. Our nation is split into two parts — one part of India is made up of absconding millionaires who run away after taking bank loans, and the other half is a nation where top entrepreneurs like Azim Premji think about the nation before their profits. In the name of religion, one nation is promoting hatred.
And the other part has moved on and is embracing a peaceful tomorrow. Another is a host to the world’s most polluted cities and the other is powering homes with solar power. Now the question is you who’ve been reading this article what part of the nation you belong to?
Your first need to learn more about the second part of the nation to understand this.
Today we will talk about the 3 Unbelievable tales of this amazing second part of India.
1. Can India turn human defecation into electricity?
This has been made a reality by Padma Bhushan- Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak. Still, 60.4 percent of the population in India has no access to the toilet. He has been attempting to make this facility available since the 1970s and has made over 15 lakh toilets in India. We all know them under the tag “SULABH sauchalays,”.
But bringing things a step further he figured how to make more effective use of this waste material. The solution was BIOGAS. The equipment required for this energy conversion has already been installed in over 190 + toilets in India. This waste matter is further decomposed and processed in these systems and eventually used to produce electricity, cook, and power street lights as well.
After the treatment plants are grown using water refusal. This waste is extremely beneficial to the plants, as it enriches them with the nutrients required for a healthy plant to grow.
2. Poor citizens can not afford healthcare services.
Yes, this is a depressing truth, particularly in India, where half of the population is below the poverty line, but they can contribute 10 Rs a month. The Government adds 30 Rs to it and provides them with health insurance. In just 150 / year they get health coverage for all the costly surgeries also. This sounds incredibly unlikely, but this low-cost health insurance is used by about 1 crore people in India today!
More than 100,000 + low-cost surgeries have already taken place, and Dr. Devi Shetty is the person who has made all this possible.
He is a cardiac surgeon who founded Narayana health. Poor people are not the problem, but poverty is the problem. Narayana Health, a chain of 23 hospitals, is considered to be the cheapest full health service provider in the world. Cheap doesn’t mean a loss-making. 12 percent of India’s heart surgeries are performed in this facility, and because so many surgeons are efficient in their work, fixed costs are divided and suppliers charge less for all medical equipment needed due to large order quantity.
They make great use of the “economies of scale” concept. Better quality at a lower cost.
3. Can a woman have more than 8,000 children?
Even after 25 years of marriage. Thimakka from Hulikal could not have had a child of her own. So what did she do, with the aid of her husband, she planted 380 + banyan trees and 8000 + other trees and raised them as her children. She is 109 years old today and has been planting trees on highway number NH94 for the last 70 years. She has no formal schooling, so she knows little about the climate crisis. She’s only mindful of the simple fact that trees provide shade. This little environmentalist from a small village has received Padma Shri from the president.
Perhaps we’ve complicated patriotism beyond comprehension, but maybe it’s really simple.
At last, what part of the nation do you belong to, or rather, what part of the nation do you want to belong to?
First India sees the problems and runs away at the first opportunity, or the second India, which doesn’t rely on someone else and doesn’t wait for the change to happen but makes the change happen.
India’s 50 percent of the population is below 25, and there is still a 50 percent likelihood of transition.
Support the Bharat you want to see flourishing. Each small step in the right direction is going to take our country one step forward.
Today, we need only realistic patriots who are ready to take small measures at their own pace. Who view their work as a religion and step forward to turn things that seem impossible today into the reality of tomorrow.
A true independence day can be celebrated when second India is liberated from First India!
