Description of "A call to 1.25 billion children of Mother India"

Countries are loved by their citizens. But India deserves maximum love and care from her children as she is not an ordinary country. Firstly, she is a great mother. And she is a great country too.

Book tells us why India should be loved immensely & deeply. It explains the exceptional greatness of India in earlier times on various counts and why India should regain her first position in the world soon.

She has fed one-fourth of world's population cumulatively since time immemorial, in spite of having only 2.5-3.0% of world's land-area. Tolerance of her people and abundance of water & food, coupled with favorable climate allowed so many people to migrate and settle here in earlier times.

From ancient era to eighteenth century, her share in world-GDP was always more than 20%. Just before British rule,her share in world-GDP was around 25%, which reduced to 3% in 1947. Likewise, her share in world-trade reduced to 1.5% in 1947 from more than 60% in seventeenth century. She was a leader in almost all the fields - from Mathematics to Metaphysics, from Metallurgy to Medicine, and from Music to Martial arts. And her three unique virtues make her the greatest and the holiest place in the world - Tolerance, Kindness and Forgiveness.

Our love for India should therefore be at the highest degree. And that immense love should be converted into action by launching and actively participating in a long-term intensive movement
for quality & productivity. The book elaborates the concept & methodology for this grand movement for quality & productivity. It urges Indians to get motivation from the Gita for that.

Besides, book urges Indians to help eliminate poverty,to clean the country and to fight against corruption.This book is an attempt to mobilize Indians for ultimately re-making India the best nation in the world in all aspects.

We are not going to live for centuries & millenniums. But India will remain for ever. Let all of us - 1.25 billion Indians - make her the best nation in the world. Let future generations maintain that position.

Her leadership position is good for the world too, as a renowned historian said, "It is already becoming clear that a chapter which had a western beginning will have to have an Indian ending if it is not to end in the self-destruction of the human race..."

There are 10 chapters in this book, as under –

-Chapter 1 : Why we should love India immensely

-Chapter 2 : India’s leadership in the world from ancient era to eighteenth century

-Chapter 3 : Decline of India under British rule and slow progress after Independence

-Chapter 5 : National movement for quality & productivity

-Chapter 6 : Helping poor people & eliminating poverty

-Chapter 7 : Cleaning India & saving the environment

-Chapter 8 : Fighting against corruption

-Chapter 9 : Relevance of teachings of the Gita

-Chapter 10 : My Appeals ( An appeal to parents & grand-parents, to teachers, to students &
youngsters, to influential people, to industrialists & entrepreneurs, to high net-worth individuals, to senior citizens, to leaders of various organizations, to IIT-alumni and to citizens of countries of Indian sub-continent.)

The ‘A call to 1.25 billion children of Mother India’ is an inspirational work and starts with a motivational poem.
The book aims to motivate every section of society to contribute to the growth of the nation and lists numerous ways of doing so.
First 30-40 odd pages are enough to catch reader’s attention and sincerity. Reader is caught to go deeper by the emotions generated by the initial set of data provided.
At this point, I would also like to mention that the book is full of data comparing India to rest of the world across centuries, but again the data is not overwhelming and soothes into reader’s mind as the book progresses.

The Book makes some really strong points and provides alternate views of looking at beggars and low income families. Almost all of us are of the opinion that low income families are themselves to be blamed for their situation but the author thinks otherwise and believes that the country can progress rapidly only if a chain reaction of contribution to environment, society, industry is triggered.
The author citing numerous personal examples makes some very strong points about the values of current society and corruption which will be etched in the memory for a long time.

The book is very organized, well structured and making readers identify their takeaways out of a motivational book cannot be done in a simpler way.
Overall this is a must read for every Indian, especially youth, as they will be able to cherish the developed India and will have the opportunity to be a part of the process of development.
