We have a history to make history….

Before I came to Paris, one of my friends told me it's a lover's city and one can fall in love with this city. As the day passes by I started comparing things with my country and how far behind we are from them in terms of lifestyle, Technology, and civilization.

Then I thought maybe am in Paris it's as usual to see this infrastructure then I planned to go out of Paris to know more about reality. But it's unbelievable to my eyes it has the same infrastructure in the village of France as well.

To some extent, I am ready to accept small is beautiful; these countries have less population and huge areas so it can be possible. But I was not satisfied with my conclusion; how a little drop of water makes a mighty ocean and then started looking things at from the micro view instead of the macro.

India is 4 times bigger than France area-wise. The area of our two states Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh is greater than France. The area of two countries like Belgium and Netherlands is less than our Assam.

The population of Bihar is more than three countries like France, Belgium, and Netherlands.

These three countries are developed countries in the world.

Developed countries have post-industrial economies, meaning the service sector provides more wealth than the industrial sector. They are contrasted with developing countries, which are in the process of industrialization, or undeveloped, which are pre-industrial and almost entirely agrarian.

France is one of the Top 10 cleanest countries in the world. One of my French friends told me, our school ensures that the students are aware of how their actions can help or degrade the environment.

Dustbins have been provided even in our school buses so waste material is disposed of properly. While walking in the street, I started to follow same what my fellow pedestrian does. I think it comes from watching and imitating whatever family members, grown-ups, and fellow travelers do.

Cycling is a ubiquitous mode of transport in these countries but in the Netherlands, approximately 49% of the people use the cycle as their main mode of transport for daily activities.

One can say the cool climate of the Netherlands means that one can cycle short distances without breaking into a sweat. I agree in India infrastructure and safety is the stumbling block.

A pedestrian is the king on the road in these countries. I have noticed several times even if it's a red light in the traffic signal and the vehicle driver noticed you are waiting for crossing the road they will allow pedestrians. It's vice versa in our country.

When in Rome, do as the Romans do." You've heard it so often that you may no longer pay attention to what it means. Yet in this age of globalization, it's as true as ever.

The French take pride in their language, and the best way to show your respect is to do your best to speak French—even if it's just a few, badly pronounced words. Same time it reminds me of my country where till now we are unable to choose a national language. 

I always emphasize this language because I believe it divides our society and country as a whole. It's not only France even if China, Japan, and South Korea are considered exemplary when language matters. It's very difficult to see anything written in English even if the computer keyboard is in French (Now my respect for Tamilans is greater than before).

We have history to make history but we will ignore it by saying we have 20% of world's population, 15 languages it's impossible. When we are going outside India, we are introducing ourselves from India then why our generation can't accept one national language for our nation? 

It's genuine for our previous generation they were not much educated but today every household has one educated person.

In the 21st century our honorable prime minister's Priority is clean India, Cycling to work one day a month, and turning off city street lights on full moon nights.

These things it's not what our prime minister only observed while traveling to other countries but any Indian has been abroad also realized. But unfortunately, we don't follow or make others follow it.

Nice quote in the street of Paris…..

Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children's children. Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skin your country of its beauty, its riches, or its romance.
