ISKRA - My dreams!!

Every single effort must have a vision before it. Ayn Rand says, for the first step down the new road, you need to be armed with nothing other than Vision. And to accomplish a great thing, the first step is to dream and visualise the dream. We all dream of India to be a great nation, a place to live with peace and high standards. Yet, most of us never know what has to be done to achieve it. What is the plan? This has to be the question once you have dreamt of something.
Before that, let me put down some of the dreams I hold for ISKRA, which would be ofcourse revised as the idea unfolds.

I dream of ISKRA to be a place for people with variety of intrests on nation's development to discuss and criticise ideas. The outcome of the discussion should be a plan of action on a particular issue. A vision without action will remain a dream and a action without a vision will take you nowhere. I dream of having people in the group with the gift of inspiring words to write up articles based on that plan of action, which will then be circulated through emails to our fellow indians. I wish to call them What has to be done?. I dream of those writings to be based on successful past models or born out of our own creativity, to better educate the people with our current condition and where we are heading to, and what is each person's role in that. I dream of ISKRA to serve as a platform for motivated people to publish their ideas through articles which will reach a major population of Indian Internet users.

I dream of this concept to be based on the successful model of the real ISKRA - the russian newspaper. When i am saying this, i am referring only to the model but not the communist and socialist concepts of the real ISKRA. I dream of developing ISKRA as a newsletter and later to a website which will provide a variety of resources to those intrested ones, which will be very high as per my dream.

There is a line between dream and vision, which is very thin. All these times i am talking about my dreams, my dreams alone will not make ISKRA's vision, it will be a mixture of dreams of people visiting here. Vision for ISKRA will be formed as soon as people start coming in and with their involvement only. If you have read the blog this far, i urge you to be a member of this blog, because it is your dream that will help formulate the Vision for ISKRA. Just leave your email address in the comments, i will send a invitation for this blog, after which you can start posting, i mean share your dreams.
