KOHIMA — Students of the Nagaland Institute of Medical Sciences and Research (NIMSR) presented their ideas on vision of ‘Viksit Bharat @2047’ at the college building, Kohima on Monday.

Launched on December 11 by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, ‘Viksit Bharat @2047: Voice of Youth’ envisions making India a developed nation by 2047, the 100th year of India’s independence.

A seminar was organised where first-year MBBS students of NIMSR were grouped into three teams, with each team presenting ideas for ‘Viksit Bharat @2047.’

Two students from each team presented ideas for ‘Viksit Bharat @2047’, on behalf of the group they represented.

Representing one of these teams, Menuweu T Mero envisioned a thriving 2047 Viksit Bharat as a nation characterised by freedom and capacity, where people from all over the world will venture to find their authentic selves. She emphasised that true development goes beyond infrastructure, focusing on unlocking individual potential, and said that India in 2047, will be a country offering individuals a chance to realise their true potential.

Mero highlighted India’s potential in spiritual tourism, and said there is immense capacity for income generation through this sector. Citing the growing popularity of meditation and yoga, she pointed to recent research affirming their positive impact on mental health and focus. Mero said that meditative retreats are becoming popular and that they are known for improving focus, creativity and clarity.

Another student, Joyce Anar, envisioned a revolution in the education system, the integration of telemedicine in healthcare, and an entrepreneurial wave through a robust start-up ecosystem.

She also noted the digital infrastructure and visualised seamless connectivity as a norm both in cities and remote villages. It is not just a vision but a call to action and commitment to a future where India does not only thrive but also defines global standards, she said.

Sharda Sharma visualised an India with improvements in poverty, unemployment, pollution, medical facilities, child labour and the absence of communal violence. She believes that education is the cornerstone for empowering the youth to access quality education and to meet the needs of the 21st century.

Several students envisioned India with sustainable urban planning, efficient waste management, and universal access to clean water, electricity, and sanitation.

They emphasised on affordable healthcare, advancements in medical research to increase life expectancy, and the implementation of sustainable energy practices. Additionally, they pictured a self-sustaining vehicle, a skilled workforce promoting sustainable energy, and the implementation of a sustainable economy and development in rural areas of India.

Director-cum-Dean Professor, Dr. Soumya Chakraborty, in her address, stressed on the importance of having dreams.

She said that having a dream is the first step towards accomplishing something and encouraged students to strive for excellence and avoid settling for mediocrity.

Dr. Chakraborty urged students to actively pursue learning, observe their surroundings, and believe in the power of seeing to foster understanding. She said that students have the potential to be innovators and contribute to the future of India. She also advised them not to restrict their aspirations to Nagaland but to transcend boundaries and explore opportunities beyond.

Assistant professor Dr. Longna Konyak said that ‘Viksit Bharat @2047’ is a dream and a vision for everyone. Emphasising the role of youth in shaping the future, he highlighted the initiative’s goal of bringing economic stability in India. Dr. Konyak acknowledged the unique talents inherent in every individual, encouraging them to join hands and change the world.

He also reflected on the rapid integration of technology into daily life over the past two decades, drawing parallels with the initial predictions about computers taking over the world, which eventually became a reality.

Dr. Konyak urged students to upgrade their skills and make India a stage that others will look up to. As citizens, he stressed the importance of being productive contributors to the nation-building process.
