As long as we are alive, matter(s) would remain associated to us. My body is a matter, a form which experiences different weathers and circumstances. The events around are also matters which inadvertently play their role in our lives. Our responses to these events also become matters, big or small, which in turn make an impact on others creating a multiplier effect. And the way we respond to matters decides the value we create of our own. It determines how much we matter. That's why the relevance of the word ‘matter’ is so prominently embedded in everyone’s life and this is what needs to be addressed here. We are going to address the matters so that our responses to those do value addition to our lives.

While there is no dearth of matters, what we need to pick and focus on are those which directly or indirectly influence us. What is the government's public policy? How are our interests being compromised? In which government school the teachers are unconcerned about the education about our children and how to actually fix them? How sports is helping India stay united? Which sector of the economy is growing? Is India making progress in education and improving on employment? Does some generic Indian mentality and approach needs to be reconsidered? How as humans can we better our lives, reinvigorate our energies to achieve better results? Looking for motivation?? Come home to IM’s home page, and read through inspirational quotes. Access the eye opening articles under Eye Opener and IM’s messages to you directly under Message to the Nation section. Move straight to Jubilant India for some pleasure filled piece of news and feel the elation within you. Unveiled highlights issues not given their due visibility or otherwise not being covered by the media but of relevance. Discuss matters under Talk About It, put your views across and support those issues for community action.

Let us make this the largest democracy's largest and most efficient & influential forum, unlike our government’s operations. We look to not just talk, but to act and also use the information to change ourselves and the community for better.

So stretch forward to find out the real 'I am' attitude in you. No, it's not a 'give no damn' outlook in life, rather it’s feeling, believing and exuberating confidence; and realizing respect for yourself in your own and others eyes. Lets keep going ahead with our lives in a more satisfying and successful way.

    A hearty effort to awaken an Indian within all of us ! Happy Republic Day !

  • Too Gud to inspire the soul...

  • India is plagued my so many problems that it would take n years to overcome them. Leave aside all the reforms viz land reforms,economic refirms & so on , the top most need for the country today(than ever befor) is to have LEGAL REFORMS. If one is able to get away after committing a heinous crime,be it related to corruption,murders.extortion,rape,abuse of dowry laws,dacoity ...due to large backlog of cases already pending with court. The need of the hour is to SPEED-UP JUDICIAL SYSTEM so that cases are solved fast.

    Pawan, the issues are many in India but you pointed out right that legal reform is one of the most important reforms we need in our scenario. Absence of this security is what makes an average Indian fear the legal system rather than find solace. There have been a few changes, the most important being RTI,2005. But we have identified a number of loopholes existing in its implementation. One such issue is that often Appellate authority is same as the PIO (Public Information Officer). The result is the required action is never taken to safeguard themselves. You have brought forward a very fine point and this needs to be discussed. We'll get more law educated citizens on board along with many others non-law grads (educated Indians) to give their fine points to look into these issues. IM will open the issue on Talk About It! on priority. Do make it a point on keep writing and keep getting others on board because your views will form the basis of IMs actions. All the best!

    @ pawan - Dear Pawan, no nation becomes a superpower within days and weeks. It takes time and more time in case the country is the largest democracy full with illiterate people with varied backgrounds. However i would like to add that the time for revolution has come as the demographics suggest that we are the youngest nation of the world. Reforms are required not only in judicial system but also in almost all the aspects. For an example to protest against the govt, Indians go on strike and call bandhs whereas in Japan people overwork to show their anger. People make a nation so the change of utmost importance is attitude reforms. It will take care of all other aspects. AMEN !!

    Its a great effort to arise our soul to do something good. We have got independence and the tag of a republic country more than fifty years ago, but even now so many people are below poverty line, so many people have no house for staying and so on. The basic needs of living (i.e., food, clothing and shelter) are not available for almost 50% of the citizens of India. Education, which enlightens us, is a mere dream to them. So its a high time to do something not only for ourselves but also for the others so that they can live rest of their life happily. A hearty congratulations to all those who have started this.
