World is getting Indianized

I agree.

There are many proud, and some not very proud reasons for which India is coming out to the world. India is known for its Food, History, Culture diversity and Bollywood all around the world Some social stigmas, dirty politics about India also often finds place in Global news. All this put together, I am still proud of Being a Indian for the good things, the achievements. I don't deny the bad, neither do I ignore them but today I choose to be an optimistic & spread the word about the good.

The Nobel Price for Peace is home!!


Kailash Satyarthi Noble Peace Prize Winner 2014
Kailash Satyarthi, an Indian Child Rights activist was awarded the Nobel Peace prize on Oct 10th, 2014 Born in Vidisha, Madhya Pradesh . An Electrical engineer quit his career for the cause. He started “Bachpan Bachao Andolan”(Save Childhood Movement), a non profit organization aimed to liberate exploited children. Satyarthi sir’s organization and campaigns has contributed largely on eliminating child trafficking and child labour. Bachpan Bachao Andolan is been in operation for 30 years with many undercover volunteers.


So if you ask for a incident to depict HOW WORLD IS GETTING INDIANIZED?
I present to you this proud achievement, and have made a list of why this tops the list of INDIANizing THE WORLD


  • Satyarthi sir received this Nobel Peace Prize for his work against suppression of the young. This cause is one needed to work on all over world, and Bachpan Bachao andolan has so far freed over 80,000 children.

  • Satyarthi sir shares this prize with Malala Yousafzay, a Pakistani activist. Indo-Pakconflicts have always attracted attention from all over the world. This achievement signifies how we are brothers and sisters united against the evils of the society. It is a perfect example of how there can be something other than hatred and conflicts between the two countries.

  • Satyarthi sir’s achievement is a tribute to Mahatma Gandhiji. As Satyarthi himself told, he is a staunch follower of Gandhiji’s principles and all his work was in compliance with the principles of Non-Violence. I quote Nobel Institute’s director Geir Lundestad “Awarding Satyarthi is our way of making amends for biggest omission till date: Mahatma Gandhi“
Mahatma Gandhiji got nominated thrice for Nobel Peace Prize, even days before he was murdered.

  • This is not the first time Satyarthi sir is recognized for his work. The list of global acclaimed awards are as follows

1. Robert F Kennedy Human Rights award 
2. Freedom Award-US 
3. The Wallenberg Medal, by University of Michigan 
4. Medal of the Italian Senate Alfonso Comin International Award 
5. International Peace Prize, Germany 
6. Defenders of Democracy Award And many more Laurettes..


  • India had seen a reduction of child labor from 12.6 million to 4.98 million from 2001 to 2010 which indicates honest efforts are made by Indians and we are on our way to eradicate this social stigma.A long way, yet the journey has begun. Below is the image b wikipedia to be proud of, which indicates India has seen a low number of incidents in Child labor compared to other parts of the world.

Child labor stats in India

Child labour in India and rest of the world, per World Bank data. India is in green with 10-20% incidence levels, along with countries in red (30-40%) and black (>40%).
So I advice the world to get Indianized.

Yet, I can’t just ignore the fact that we have to concentrate on a more grave problem which is Child trafficking. The figures depicting it’s reduce world wide is not satisfactory. The optimistic Indian in me says “We Shall overcome, one day! Deep in my heart, there lies belief. We shall overcome, one day”




  • On World Girl Child day, India receives applause for the work associated with a similar cause. So I can say Indiaizng the world is a step taken by the rest of the world towards this cause and all humans to unite against Child abuse & suffering.

  • After Mother Teresa, this is the second Nobel Peace Prize and a start for many to come. This award will be an inspiration for all Indians to support and work towards this cause of eradicating violence against children.

  • India now has in total eight names for the Nobel prize winners.

  • 278 candidates were nominated from all over the world. An Indian & a Pakistani made it to the top of the list. Every year the number of Indians nominated increases, with this year the count being 47 out of 278, that is 17% of Indianizing the Noblel Peace Prize

My personal reasons for selecting this Indianizing Acheivement 





  • Like Satyarthi sir I am also a Engineer, the next is to be a activist. :)



  • Been a part of a volunteer program – Super Souls which shares similar goals and had done and is doing campaigns for this cause of eradicating child labor.



  • I Love Childhood and understand the true meaning of protecting a Child’s innocence. 


With this I end this post Congratulating the Indianized World for its step towards Peace.  


P.S. Satyarthi sir's work looks magnificent and full of grandeur, but this commitment towards a cause comes with obstacles. Satyarthi sir too was assaulted a number of times, and has lost two of his colleagues in this fight, who were murdered.

  2. Thank you Anirudh for this post. I am so enjoying my "Indian" experience learning so much about your country from the inside out ... Kailash Satyarthi like Malala is doing amazing work - many countries have what to learn from them. I love the way you take pride in your country's achievements and lovingly accept its flaws. That's the way it should be! Hugs <3

  7. Kailash Satyarthi is an inspiration for the whole world! The man really took the Indian tradition of service to new heights, the same way Lufthansa India is promoting Indian service aboard its flights courtesy their new More Indian Than You Think campaign! Nice write-up Anirudh!
