Dr. Jaya Prakash Narayan’s Message to The Nation

jayaprakash-narayanaThe task is difficult, but vital. The struggle is hard, but necessary. The risks are high,but cannot be avoided. The effort will demand all our courage, resourcefulness and endurance. We must work for such a movement with the sure knowledge that people want reform, and if we fail to translate their frustration and anger into a constructive reform movement, the nation will have to forsake peace,freedom and unity, and at least a generation or more will needlessly suffer pain, anguish and misery on a scale unprecedented in human history. If we attempt reform earnestly and design institutions wisely, the reform movement will surely succeed in a few years’ time and the Indian people will build a nation of peace,freedom and unity, a nation that will play its rightful role globally in keeping with its size, history and civilization, and will promote happiness of its citizens internally. As some one said with prescience, there is nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has come. This is the time for a holistic reform of our governance structure,to build a strong, democratic, self-governing India, with all its citizens enjoying peace, freedom and harmony. History beckons us.

Jaya Prakash Narayan
