Achievements of India After 1947

The country of possibilities.
The country of festivals.
The country that stunned the world on 15th August' 1947.

As another independence day is approaching us we are all in a little patriotic mood. We are looking back and realising that we have travelled a long way from where we were in 1947. All those struggles are long gone, all those wishes were fulfilled, all those prayers were answered and we were free. We have new struggles now, new wishes, new prayers but we are free and it is all because of the people and their determination to make this country free which they did and passed on the determination to new generations as a gift. It is the reason that makes us great, we have a long way to go and a lot to achieve but we cannot forget what we have already achieved. In the spirit of remembering and rejoicing over success, CollegeDekho brings you the 5 major milestones that India has achieved in the last 70 years.

Right To Education

4th August' 09, the happiest and proudest day of India. It is the day when the right to education was approved.

India is a home for 1.5 billion people and 73.04 percent people are literate. It is a very big accomplishment for a developing nation.

15th August is one of those days when we feel proud to be Indians. I hope that this Independence Day, we try to make this feeling of being proud, permanent and our patriotism is not limited to flying kites and watching the parade. I hope we get the courage to be the "Mockingjay" we aspire to be.
