    So long as Indians live in a world of past, amd most do, India will not move forward. For India to move forward, Indians need to elect only well-educated Indians to the parliament, forget about religion and party-politics, and instead focus on building a better India. But unfortunately all the spare energy of Indians is spent on matters of past, of religion and party-politics, and pettiness. Despite having one sixth of world's potion, India is not on the UN Security Council as a permanent member. Despite exporting millions of computer code cutters to other countries, Indians take several days to finish of the terrorists entering a supposedly secure military site, and that despite advance warning that the same site was a target of the terrorists. Indians need to elect educated people to the parliament. Not uneducated like the selfie hunting Gujjubhai.

        Congress is biggest enemy of this country who looted this country recklessly in last 68 years making this country bankrupt causing acute poverty and backwardness. There are large number corruption cases pending against top Congress leaders but nothing has happened till date. BJP govt is also bluffing public by not acting against corrupts of Country in spite of repeated commitment made by Modi during Lok sabha elections resulted in BJP lost image in public domain and it is also treated by public as CORRUPT like Congress. The future of BJP is very bleak unless it takes swift action against corruption and corrupts by seizing all their ets. Corruption is gravest danger of this country which is main reason for terrorist activity, anarchy and turmoil all over country which must be curbed all costs.
