Hybrid Rural Development Model
In archives there is a photograph showing Rabindranath Tagore listening to the woes of a distressed and disturbed Gandhi. It was then that Tagore told him: “If they dont follow you, walk alone.”IntroductionIndia has very ambitious social sector programmes — in areas of employment, health, education, infrastructure development, etc and the outlays on them have been increased. But so far the results have been less than desirable. Why? Two words: failed systems.Indias planners have developed well-c...

Diwali or Deepavali as its known in Sanskrit, is celebrated differently in various parts of India and has different origins for Hindus, Sikhs and Jains.For Hindus Diwali day symbolizes the return of Lord Rama to Ayodhya after 14-years exile during which he defeated the demon Ravana.

Development in rural India
The conference was attended by more than 80 highly motivated NRIs. The NRI age ranged from 30 to 70+. In my estimation each had 10 to 50 years experience in various fields. As a group they represented an estimated 2000+ years of cumulative experience in humanities, business, engineering, medical and scientific fields. Most were seeking clues: how to help solve India’s problems?...

Technology Impact on Social Engineering
The principle of absolute certainty violates Heisenbergs principle of uncertainty, theory of relativity and quantum mechanics responsible for 20th century advances in technology offering solutions to problems created by population explosion. Not only economic growth and aspirations of over 75% of global population but also economic and military might of major powers depends on modern technology. Technology is stealthily instigating social engineering of all societies and Muslims using modern con...

Neutralizing Jihadists
A vast majority of 57 Muslim-majority nations of OIC (Organization of Islamic Conference) have autocratic rulers. In a ranking of 177 nations on the Failed State Index (2007), 20 of top 40 failing states are members of OIC. Muslim-majority countries top 24 most corrupt countries of the world. Islamic Asharite philosophy of submission to authority of scriptures as interpreted by muftis (lawyers-clerics) and feudal warlords advocates reliance on authority as the sole route to truth, which benefits...

Hindu Vedic Culture: Power of Knowledge
Vedic culture is characterized by its power of knowledge developed starting about five millenniums ago and it flourished in India except for about a millennium from 950 to 1947. Hindus, Buddhist, Sikhs and Jains are direct and Christians and Muslims are indirect beneficiaries of Vedic knowledge (see C. K. Raju, “The Eleven Pictures of Time,” The physics, Philosophy and Politics of Time Beliefs, SAGE Publications, New Delhi and London (2003)). Vedic people had social, cultural and commercial tie...

Science and Cultural Dilemma
This article discusses how three dominant global cultures - Vedic, Christianity and Islam - accept scientific truths. Christianity used to preach a dogma - Christian beliefs supersede scientific facts. They experienced reforms – starting with the renaissance era that changed Christianity for better. Not so with Islam. Vedic culture predates both C...

Homicidal Islam
Pakistan, a nuclear power with 600,000 men in arm, has seventh largest army in the world. Pakistan is number 134 out of 177 countries on the Human Development Index but it maintains the seventh largest military on the planet. The toll by homicidal Islam continues to mount in spite of Pakistan being America’s front line state in the war on terror!......

Development of Rural India’s Entrepreneurs
K BHATIA: Hard reality confounds cold economic theories. An estimated 300 millions of disadvantaged rural Indians are stuck in a rut of economic frustration – most of them not because they are lazy, but because they have had poor parenting, inadequate education, no mentoring, or simply bad luck. To eradicate wide-spread poverty first step is to empower rural and tribal youth with marketable skills...

Defending Indefensible Cultural Practices
K BHATIA: If God created universe then it makes Him responsible for creation of all faiths. I suppose if God were ever to speak to the last prophet who maintains that his is the only “true” faith; to such a prophet God may say, “To continue with creation I need my space.” ......

Mughal India and Sectarian Bombs
K BHATIA: The most glaring omission that most historians and learned commentators make is to ignore destruction of Hindu India’s educational infrastructure by Muslims rulers of India starting with the Sultanate period (tenth to thirteenth centuries) and concluding with the Mughal period (sixteenth to nineteenth centuries). Not a single center of education was established by Muslims during almost n...
