These issues are co-related with each other as both, end up with people unhappy. This unhappiness is caused by the discomfort caused by the government, by their indifference and corruption. If we put both of these sources side by side, we will see how similar the root of these problems are and how their eradication will improve the country exceedingly. 
A course of action that I would like to plan is first and foremost, at a national level – with the government providing necessary measures to reduce poverty of India, and by increasing the wages and/or assist the poorer parts of the population with their funds, providing job opportunities, reducing fees and providing them with better living conditions. This in turn, will make the people of the country happier, would reduce poverty, boost the economy of the country and make the general public more motivate to work and make them happier. Next, individually, everyone should work on reducing their dependance on materialistic possessions and should improve their inner happiness by the purging of non-essential living possessions. The people should also be informed about minimalistic living, and its advantages and should be advised to live without unnecessary goods, and providing them to people who would benefit from having it. However, India is a country of timeless traditions and etiquettes. Indians constantly clutter their homes with unnecessary possessions and their success is seen by how big their house is and /or how many cars they own. They are subjected to peer pressure and hence they are misinformed as to what is minimalism and how good it is for the environment and so it might be hard converting the population. This change, is a long-term process in a democratic country like India where most matters are ingrained in the mind and very difficult to change, especially in the matters relating to religion. Still, the people should be compassionate and should be open to changes, as eventually, this open-mindedness will lead to better decisions in the future.
After doing this research, I found out how vast minimalism really is and though it is a difficult decision to become a practicing minimalist, it is not unachievable. Like Graham Hill says in his Ted Talk on minimalism, I need to think small because more the space, the more I want to fill it up with things. This made me think of how happy we are really when we go to a hotel and in one small room we are happy with all our possessions or for that matter when we stay in a camp, carrying very few things and just close to nature. I intend making things multifunctional. Today my phone is not there just to make and receive calls, I have 13 mega-pixel camera, a surround sound, a personal computer and even a book reader in it. So, I don’t really need to get five different gadgets and then look after them because one thing solves all my purposes. I know it is a gradual process, however, minimalism is a way of life that should truly be preached and can help towards making a sustainable world when all other methods failed. This revelation really helped me in believing that there is an alternative way of living without using our very scarce resources.
