(Envisioning our future Nation Builders…Listening to the hearts of Children & Youth of India & the Diaspora.)

Building Responsible Citizens for India of 2047

In line with the vision and thought embedded in Article 51A of the Constitution of India and the National Youth Policy objectives, our current project is titled “INDIA DREAMS 2047”.

A million dreams
  • Children: below age 18 years, Youth: 15-29 years, as per the National Youth Policy
  • 1/4th or 25% Indians are adolescents, between 10 & 19 years of age
  • 28% of Indians are between 15-29 years of age – contributing to 34% of India GNI – Gross National Income
  • 1/2 or 50% of Indians are below 25 years of age – Children & Youth
  • 29 years will be the average age of an Indian by 2020
  • 2/3rd or 65% of Indians are below 35 years of age – Children & Youth

We are motivating children and youth of all sections of society across our nation to DREAM for India and BUILD for India. Children & Youth will express their aspirations, thoughts, ideas and commitment to action through essays, poetry, songs and paintings about their DREAMS and planned DEEDS.

This year, we will focus on encouraging children & youth to contribute their suggestion, vision and dream for India 2047 along with their commitment to action through short essays, poems, song lyrics, song compositions, paintings, music, speeches, short films & videos by children on what each one of them dreams for their nation and what they will do for the nation starting now. Each essay will be not more than 200 words. Each of the children and youth’s contribution of suggestions & commitment would be posted on the Project website which will be curated over the years. Each of the participants will continue to be a part of the nation-wide project over the next decades as they grow to see their collective dreams fulfilled.


Every year, we will release a coffee table book titled INDIA DREAMS 2047 over the next 28-31 years leading up to our Centenary Celebration of our Independence Day and our Republic Day. This coffee table book will be presented to the leaders & influencers of our Nation: Captains of Governance – The President, Vice President, Prime Minister, Union Cabinet Ministers, State Chief Ministers, Members of Parliament, MLAs of each State; Captains of Industry – Industrialists, Businessmen, heads of business associations; Captains of Education – Chancellors & Vice Chancellors of Universities, Directors & Principals of Schools and Colleges; among many others.

We need to seed thoughts and facilitate our nation’s children and youth and inspire them to dream, act and excel in every sphere of life, individually and collectively. This will finally lead India to break the entrenched cycle of poverty & inequity, developing us into a strong economic super power and leader-influencer in the comity of nations by 2047.

Raya Kejriwal is 7 years old, studies in Heritage School, learns music at the Lorraine Music Academy and lives in Gurugram, NCR of Delhi.

Raya’s Dream for India of 2047:
“I want to see the stars, not from the hills or on holiday but from my house in Gurgaon.”

Raya’s Deeds for India of 2047:
“To achieve this dream, I will find out what is causing this pollution and figure out a way to stop it. I will also tell people that using unnecessary lights causes light pollution and wastes electricity. Less lights at night will let night life live well and help me to see the stars.
In the future, I want there to be a lot of greenery in Indian cities. For this I will plant as many trees as I can and I will try to make everyone else also plant trees.”
