Seminars in Young and Energetic India

 - Prof. Satya Prakash Tiwari

Young and Energetic India
India is emerging as world power. It is a nuclear power and in a position to have controlled nuclear devices. It has largest scientific and technical manpower in the world, competitive space technology and getting ready to land on moon. The country is nuclear in sea and part of Antarctica mission and it is leading in information technology and soft ware industry.  Industrial sector is growing exponentially, buying leading industries and developing most innovative technology for passenger car. Education Sector is expanding to reach to every one. There is revolution in connectivity through television, telephone, mobile, e-mail, internet, roads, trains and air flights. Medical facilities are expanding and there is modern outlook in life style. Overall there is boom in Economy. There is no more suppression and 70% population of India is young.

Spiritual  Superiority
Our national prosperity is spreading our Spiritual Knowledge. World bodies are accepting the Ayurvedic herbal treatment. Yog Vidya is becoming popular. Fine arts, music and dance are being appreciated and respected. Veds and Upnishads are being adopted. Indian market is attracting Hindi learning. Modern science is converging to Indian philosophy and Indian minds are consistently proving their superiority in all walks of life. In conclusion, if Einstein gave the mass energy relation for technological revolution, Gandhi gave the message of Truth and Non-Violence for universal peace and prosperity.

Allienation of Young Educated
The young educated is unaware of ancient language Sanskrit, Rashtra Bhasa Hindi and even their own mother tongue. They are educated through English and in English style where the facts are distorted by English authors due to their incomplete knowledge and self-interest. They know little about Ved, Upnishad, Ramayana, Mahabharat, Geetanjali, other great epics of all time and glorious past of India.  Their knowledge of Indian Mathematics, Science, Medicine, Agriculture, Philosophy, Music and Dance is limited. The life in USA and UK is their role model and they hesitate to say that they are proud Indians. They lack the courage, self-confidence and to some extent they appear intellectually subjugated perhaps due to historical reasons.

 Here it is important to mention that Mahatma Gandhi held the view that western civilization is founded in a false view of universe and man’s role in it. This falsehood at the core had corrupted all its products including its science and technology. He further emphasized that Indian Civilization was founded in truth. Its basic principles, its fundamental moral and social order were sound. It has within itself all the necessary resources to overcome the temporary moral, social and material weaknesses that India was then suffering from. Indians have nothing to learn from west, they only needed to become better Indians, better and more faithful practitioners of moral, social and material discipline that Indian civilization has long taught them.

Professor M.M.Joshi in his recent book “Science, Sustainability and Indian National Resurgence” has further reinforced the above views.  He says that we have to change our mind set and start thinking and acting towards developing a new model, based on sustainable consumption to replace the current economic model that is based on a mechanistic and fragmentary world view and is propelled by market forces alone.

 The concept of sustainable consumption lifts the environmental arguments to the plain of ethics and morality, to the plain where Indian civilization seeks to regulate and discipline material culture of which science and technology form an integral part, the plain at which Mahatma Gandhi formulated his response to the west.

 The learned founders of Bharat Vikas Parishad Dr. Suraj Prakash and Lala Hans Raj have also propagated the same views.

Dear Verma Ji,
I congratulate you for putting your views so precisely. A dynamic policy with innovative approach is the need of the day for BVP governance. The rapid economic and information evolution is well adopted by young India. I feel it is an achievement and they will take the nation ahead. We should rethink all our programs in a pragmatic way. Your suggestion of creating a BVP THINK TANK is great. Regards.

The article entitled "Seminars in Young and Energetic India" by Prof. Satya Prakash Tiwari is very useful in inculcating new visions and goals as per the aspirations of the the youth in the service of our motherland.

  • We ought to organize a Seminar on the subject of  "How to generate / invite new ideas for the future governance and development of BVP, together with a proposal for absorbing dynamic policy with adequate governance . For being effective in governance / development in any organization mutual trust is needed to be establish with peers and advisers. A needs-led, flexible and tailored approach is called for, starting from the perspective of the groups and organisations. Let us create a "Think Tank" , which is responsible for constantly generating new initiatives and also monitoring the effectiveness of the on-going projects.
     

  • In voluntary organizations like ours the governance can be initially defined as focusing attention on three areas: setting direction; maintaining independence; and the national governing board's dynamics.
     

  • We must also plan to co-ordinate the existing resources of various BVP Donor Agencies , BVP Prants / BVP Branches , including Outside umbrella bodies, training agencies and funders.
     

  • The governance ought to possess a range of structures and procedures (constitution, board of members/trustees, written policies and procedures) based on competences of people and group processing the strategic thinking and group decision-making and also to accommodate the concepts of accountability and representativeness.

There is a tendency to make three assumptions about organisations - that they were new; they wanted to grow; and their development needed to follow a linear path. Moreover we will have to consider to remove weaknesses and ambiguities in our constitution. I firmly believe that a poor constitutions is a root cause of governance problems.

Small community groups and voluntary organisations occupy an ambiguous space between informal and formal activity. They do not necessarily develop in accordance with the 'ladder theory' - i.e. along a linear, rational path. Some evolve in loops, with cycles of fluctuating growth; others are content with their position in the spectrum. Others are compelled to change by institutional pressures from their environment, and because of governance and resource requirements.

Groups and organisations inhabiting this ambiguous space were distinctive because they were dynamic, diverse and had a variety of the characteristics of both community groups and voluntary organisations. They could be positioned anywhere across the spectrum, and ranged from precarious refugee groups with little English and no resources, to well-resourced organisations comprising able and influential individuals.

The future of the BVP lies in adoption of a dynamic approach through constant generation of dynamic projects so as to fulfill the basic objectives of the organization asa well to meet the desired changes in attitude and new structure of governance through a "Think Tank" before it is too late.

Let us have a positive and dynamic policy and programmes for futuristic growth.
