Thanks to America for inventing Democracy, at least there is a will of the people here, and
Thanks to Pandit Nehru for nurturing India to be a stable, secure, safe, and secular democratic nation.
I shudder at the thought of what India would have been if it was not for Nehru, Ambedkar, Patel and Azad. Thanks to them for passing on a great India into the hands of Lal Bahadur, Gulzari Lal, Indira, Morarji, Rajiv, Atal, Manmohan and Modi. Although Indira messed up with emergency the first time, almost all of them have done a great job in preserving the democratic, secular pluralistic credentials of India and I hope Modi keeps it going. Now, It is in our hands to keep India great and have it continue on its pluralistic ethos - respecting the otherness of others.
What would make India truly great? It is when every Indian feels free, safe and secure to pursue his/her own happiness. Greatness does not come from conquests, authoritarian, iron fist or fascist rule, but from caring and being just for every citizen.
