I wish I were the Prime Minister of India, a great nation. I love this wonderful country of mine and I yearn to be in a position to move things the way I want.

I know it is not easy to rule a country like India even though it is a democracy. Democracy is beautiful as a theoretical concept- rule of the people, by the people and for the people. But great is the task when the land is vast, millions of people are illiterate and nearly half the population is below poverty line. We believe we are one nation in spite of different languages, religions, cultures and ideologies that seem to divide us. History bears testimony that even when the ruling authority was strongly established in Delhi, the far off areas where never under tight control. Right through the ages, ruling the country has been a difficult task. No wonder then that we often experience shock waves hearing what happens hundreds of miles away at our frontiers and in our cities and villages were innocent blood is spilled. What then will I do if I become the Prime Minister? I do want to be one even though I know that it is not a comfortable task.

To be an ideal Prime Minister I have to be a moral giant, for service is the motto, and justice, equity and integrity, the way. No sacrifice can be too great and no burden too heavy when it is a question of serving my country. I must be strong to rule with firmness, impartiality, equity, and integrity. I must be sensitive to the silent sufferings of the mute masses and willing to wipe their tears away. To contain the growing population, to feed millions of hungry mouths, to eradicate disease and ignorance, to pull down the artificial barrier of caste, creed and religion, to lead the nation to a happier tomorrow- this is indeed a stupendous task! If i were the Prime Minister I would make every effort to rise to the occasion and do my best. If i am able to do something in this direction, even if it seems very little because these problems will take a long time to be solved, I would certainly feel that my life has been fruitful.

Today, the needs of the people are far too many in spite of the advances in science and technology. Then what will be my priorities? ignorance by promoting adult education. I would then work for self-sufficiency among the poorer classes of society by promoting cottage industries, employment schemes and self-help programmes. Next, I would work for the eradication of diseases by providing water supply to far off areas, better sanitation, child and mother care, food supplies for the poor and undernourished and free medical facilities through hospitals and dispensaries. I would make provision for persons with physical handicaps and for orphaned children. Child labour and bonded labour would be abolished and special courts set up to meet our justice to the oppressed and victimized. It will be very important for me to work for the conservation of water and forest wealth and to check environmental pollution. Disaster management will also be one of the top priorities. Finally I would dedicate my life to the improvement of the quality of education, stressing vocational, moral and value education, suiting it to the present needs of individuals, communities and the nation, with the aim of strengthening national unity.

To cap it all, the tempo of modernization and industrialization in this computer age will continue to match international standards so that the country is considered second to none in super technology.

All said, India will continue to hold its place in the comity of nations as the greatest democracy of the world.
