KOLKATA OF MY DREAMS   -- by Geebani Devi, Class VII

Today Kolkata is characterized by violence, religious strife, political chaos, rising price of commodities, corruption, moist raj etc. We have managed to turn the land of peace into the land of blood. The great Kolkata of Rabindranath Tagore, Swami Vivekananda, Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar and Raja Ram Mohan Roy is now at the verge of shattering down.

In my dream of future Kolkata, everybody would have enough to eat and wear. There would be no death due to starvation and poverty. None would die due to lack of medical facilities. Everyone would have enough jobs and everybody should get the chance of learning. There should be no corruption, traffic jam and pollution in Kolkata.

In my dreams of future Kolkata, there should be a political law that the election should not be based on money power or muscle power. There should be no OBCs, Backward classes etc. in future Kolkata. Everybody should be treated equal in the eI do not think that my dream of Kolkata is too idealistic or too unrealistic. I would be fortunate enough to see this glorious Kolkata sparkling with the noble ideas of peace, harmony and political stability. It would be the Kolkata like the great patriot Rabindranath Tagore visualized ---- "Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high, where knowledge is free, where the world is not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls".
