  1. Complete literacy (everyone able to read and write) and everyone adult should have completed high school
  2. Poverty Eradication - every Indian should be able to earn above the bare minimum of $3/day
  3. Eradication of major communicable diseases including Polio, Tuberculosis, Malaria, and Typhoid
  4. Eradication of child labor (no child should be forced to work, at the cost of his/her education)
  5. Removal of social bias and untouchability (no person should be judged based on his/her birth)
  6. Eradication of gender bias and crimes against women (rapes, sexual harassments, dowry)
  7. Promotion of communal harmony to eradicate religion-based violence (inter-faith acrimony should stop)
  8. Corruption at all levels of governance should get closer to nil
  9. Cross-border terrorism, sectarianism, separationism, and naxalitism should come to an end
