The Obama Effect !!

Congratulations to the The Next President of United States of America, Barack Obama... Well not for the fact that he is the first African American person to occupy the highest office of USA.. I believe that so many across the world over had done with their felicitations that my part wont be missed much.... I would want to congratulate Obama for having made another legacy , for bringing up "The Obama Effect"... I had often wondered that only scientist had the destiny to have a theory, principle left behind them... Like the Newton's principle, Doppler's effect etc, but there have been few people other than scientist who have had the fortune to not only leave a legacy but also stand for some thing which rekindles the human spirit...

Yes, Congratulations to Barack Obama for being the ingenious lead character of the sparkling effect "The Obama Effect"... The Obama Effect has come to have a multitude of significance.. First and foremost,it has come to represent the win of mankind over the petty socially divisive obstructions which have been restricting humans for centuries... An African American person, who before 40 yrs back didnt have the rights to take part in democratic election process, has been entrusted with the Highest authority in American society...More importantly "The Obama Effect" is the victory of the American Dream.... The belief "You can be anybody that you want to be" is a basic underlying phenomenon of American society and no matter how people are prejudiced against color/religion/country etc, it is the belief in this tenet which propels the USA in the main stream of International politics and which is the reason for USA being a super power...

People might argue that its the economic power of USA which makes it the Super-power or its military strength (for Pro-NATO minded ppl) which makes it the Kingpin... Yet, i strongly believe that not with standing the socioeconomic factors which appear to be the axis, its the incurrent attitude and beliefs of the people who form the society that ends up being the fulcrum. The hope that if you have the capability, perseverance and work hard, you can achieve your goal, no matter who you are,how you are and where you are, fuels an optimism in the minds of the men and it is this reason, that America continues to be in the center of world's stage and will continue to create World Leaders...


Here, i would like to make a small comparision of our Country,India with that of the America... Its no secret that we have a mighty long road to travel... Just because the GDP of our country is growing at a fast rate,it will not guarantee that we will be a super power...I dont want to rant about the endless things which are not working correct in our society, the corruption, the diplomatic complicated channels,the morally corrupt neta's etc... Rather what i want to focus on is the necessary things which we Indians must address as we progress along the path to being called a SuperPower.For being called a Superpower, you dont need Weapons and Money to show off...

What you need is a country with people who believe in their inherent capacity to achieve their full potential and believe in them...We need a country with leaders to show the people that Dreaming big and Achieving the same can be done by anyone, provided he has the passion and fire to achieve it... If that happens, we may/may not have an 'Obama' , but what we can certainly look forward is too a day when every citizen of India stands for a cause greater than his own and say proudly "Iam an Indian and I believe in the Indian Dream". Believe me friends, that day would be a day worth living for...!

Jai Hind.
