Once, aspiration was for the privileged few. But Indians have learnt to have faith in their tomorrows, and dream of new selves
Listen to this article
The story of aspirations in India is a relatively recent one. For a long time, the idea that a human being could significantly change the trajectory of her life within her lifetime was one that did not make too much sense to anyone but the handful born to a life of privilege. Life was a condition into which one was born, the circumstances that determined the course of one’s time here were already scripted; what remained was for us to live out what had been determined for us by birth. ‘Duniya mein hum aayen hain to jeena hee padega/ Jeevan hai agar zahar toh peena hee padega’ -- the sentiment expressed by this Mother India song captures the feeling quite accurately.
