Belief in the ‘WEST’.
Posted by shivamkesari
This blog is not about discussing boon or bane of allowing FDI in INDIA, neither it will discuss the data related to FDI. I am trying to focus “is there any substantial need urging INDIA to beg alms from foreign countries!!!”
The current economic position of INDIA is just because of our policy to look west. It is so inculcated in our nature that we even globalize the terrorist attack of 26/11 of Mumbai to 9/11 of USA just to find a correlation of ’11’. The science and technology of INDIA is only realized when it get return back from west or its use had been certified from west. Recent example is of the language ‘SANSKRIT’ which has been notified as the easy language for computer ( http://post.jagran.com/NASA-to-use-Sanskrit-as-computer-language-1332758613 ; http://www.atmainstitute.org/sanskrit.htm ) and the debatable topic for origin of the world’s language (http://www.davidicke.com/forum/showthread.php?t=165979 ) but to INDIAN it is a nightmare subject. For last few centuries our independence have been put up for sale to other invaders, be it invading emperors of 1000AD or century ago the Britishors. We boast of independence and right to life and liberty but at the next moment we look to others for the help. With long era of 800 to 1000 years this had been inculcated in our genes to be dependent on others and we have forgotten what being independent means. One more good quality we INDIANs have is to develop faith on others- Be it the East India Co. or the recent advances in Indian economics from foreign investment.
Our freedom fighters laid their lives for an independent environment with our own industries, markets, technologies, peoples and consumers. But we fall prey to west and east. Recently, I read a book which was about the magnificent science and technology India had over thousands of years ago and how they were shared free of cost to every nation and we believed: “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam – the whole world is one single family“. We were self dependent on every aspects, with great science and technology in every field you can think of. I am hereby sharing links from wikipedia for your reference. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_science_and_technology_in_the_Indian_subcontinent , http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_India)
But, the present scenario depicts something else which didn’t require any discussion. From science and technology to culture and heritage we believe in the west. I am not mentioning that looking west is crime, but it shouldn’t cost our self dependency and self esteem. Our present education system which was creation of Lord Macaulay one and half century back is very much responsible for it. Two letters of Macaulay one to his boss and other to his father is as below. The letter shows the very intention of the so called ‘LORD’ to curb the independency of INDIA forever by executing the materialistic education system.
Harms were also made by the invaders from Afganistan and other Muslim nations who destroyed and theft our long and eminent ancient science documents. We had renowned Economists and Politicos – Chanakya, Medical Surgeon – Shushrut, Aircraft Technique- Pushpak Vimana, Metallurgy – Ashoka Stambh, Arithmatic and Algebra, Head transplantation – Lord Ganesha, our sage discussed much earlier about Nuclear science, spherical shape of earth, Sanjivani Booti (Alas! we are depending on nuclear technology of others) and much more.
We have excellent brain compared to other world but we lack infrastructure to utilize those brain, we have enough capital to invest in the country itself but we lack in protecting our own money from being deposited in foreign account, we have enough agriculture land for food but we lack in latest resources, technology and research to utilize those land, we have enough manpower but lack of their will to work, we have the largest democracy but lack in aptitude to choose the best, we have the largest government but lack in their capability to work.
Everyone agrees that FDI will boost the market, will strengthen the supply chain and will increase profit share of producers; but at what cost??? Where the people employed in supply chain management will go? With lack of infrastructure and resources only few of them will opt to return back to production process but will they be able for it? Instead they will lead to crime world ( FDI might be claiming to indirectly create employment in police and security services ) FDI would had been already captured those sector with no scope to new entrant and all of them will remain unemployed. They will not be able to start their own business and will lose their independence. We have enough entrepreneurs and philanthropist businessmen but not the policy to encourage them to develop the society but we do have enough licenses to curb their development.
The need of the hour is not to introduce policy of FDI but to introduce policy to establish our own research and development center as per the global level, policy to search and explore our ancient science documents and protect them through patent, policy to protect our money from being deposited in foreign, policy to reform education system, policy to reform election process and last but not the least — policy for fast track judgment for crimes of every aspects.
“If you really cares for us don’t let us fell prey to invaders; draft policy to make us independent.”
