india - ups and downs

some of the recent happenings that makes every indain ( atleast me ) to feel happy are

tennis - the success of sania mirza who broke all the records and entered top 30 in rankings.. wish soon she finds a place in top 10 and then in to top 3...
cricket - the success of indian cricket team in the test series in england which created history... hope indian cricket team proove the same in one day series and in the 20/20 world cup also....
politics - prathiba patil becoming the first women president of india.... though i feel bad that APJ cdnt continue as president , i feel happy that he went back the most valuable post of teaching ... and the success of prathiba also proves one more fact to the world , that how much india respects its women power... the more women grow , the country grows... :-)
space - the achievements of kalpana chawla and sunitha williams has made our country proud in the space world

as this success list goes on , we are seeing lot of downs also in our nation ( both natural and man made ),

the most worst thing that comes to me immediately is the sucide of farmers ( more that 1000 people ) , whom we call the back bone of india. this discourages the agriculture field a lot and soon we may see a food revolution itslef in our country if the same state continues...
the other one is the recent floods in bihar which caused lot of deaths and made lot of people homeless... these floods are affecting some part of the country every year and we see no improvements the next year to protect people from such calamaties.... unlike earth quakes i believe these can be predicted and preventive measures can be taken during the peak monsoons in each of the states atleast to the low lying risky places.... not sure how many years it will take to do this...
though the first 2 are natural defects which we are still trying to fix , the terrorism is growing heavily in our country , a recent report shows after iraq and afgan , its india with most terrorist attacks... and india is concentrating on the US nuclear deal... though i didn't know much about the benifits of this deal , i believe we should concentrate on security and peace deals with global nations than this one... the worse thing in this case is the internal terrorism , inter state issues which makes our security even weaker and opens up lot of holes for others to attack us easily...

i will soon try to post a seperate topic on this internal terrorism which is growing its network heavily in our country... :-(
