India is great OR India was great?India is considered to be a great country in the world. There are various reasons for India's greatness. India is great because of its culture and traditions. Because of great people and India is a concoction of many religions, castes, and people of different culture and languages. Because of its largest democracy. There are many other factors that keeps India ahead of all other countries in the world. India is of course a unique country. India is great for it's unity in diversity,it's brother hoodness and the family relations.
One of the great Telugu poets said, "Deshamante Matti kaadoy Deshamante manushuloy". Which means country is not the land we are standing on. We the people for the country. So everyone in this society is a part of the country.
My question is, "is it not our responsibility to retain the greatness of our country? Is it not our responsibility to show India in us?
Now a days people are not even looking after their parents. We don't have time to help others. We don't respect teachers or parents. We are not having social responsibility. India women is treated as goddess but women are facing many problems in the society. When we are not possessing those qualities of greatness then how can we say India is great?
If the people in this generation say India is great, I feel like an irresponsible person getting respect showing the greatness of their ancestors.
