Problems are always complex to discern and resolve, but it is the zest and passion that drives one towards resolution. Koreans are divided by political fortitude but they inside, they still have the longing to stand as a single nation. Germany had similar fractions that sounded like stitching a broken china (ceramic-ware).
If there is one thing that can guide us towards that visions, it would be the ability and capacity to rise above ourselves. This feature is dispersed amongst the common masses but is lacking in our collective conscious and actions. The day we cross those barriers, all prophesies of doom and revolt will disappear, and we should see a rising nation. It is equally true that we won’t see any radical change happening overnight. Historically, as the Indian social order and polity stands, radical changes are unlikely as there is tremendous resilience that is inbuilt. However, pressure from disruptive changes (business, technology, rising democratization and population pressure) may all fast forward some these changes. Polity with an alacrity to understand and adapt will bring this order.
The idea of one nation is doomed but the idea of all people under one roof is not. Hope we drive our nation towards that vision like the Koreans (one step at a time) and Germans.
